The staff at Holden with input from parents believe that all stakeholders make a difference every day in the lives of students and each other.  We work together each day – instructional staff, support staff, clerical, custodial, community volunteers and parents to assist each student in reaching their learning goals.


A place everyone wants to be!

The Holden staff believes that a high achieving and successful school is a place where students, staff and parents are welcomed, treated with respect and learning new interesting/relevant curriculum.  All whom enter our school are expected to be learners every day.

October 2, 2015 * We received a visit from the Sterling Heights High School Varsity Football team. The Football players shared lunch and recess with all our students and afterwards spent time in classrooms reading stories. The players inspired students to read everyday and stressed how to play fair on the playground. A big THANK YOU to the SHHS Varsity Football players!!

September 29, 2015 *** Ms. Sitaara Jones, a Representative from "Go Noodle" came to us all the way from Chicago to reinforce the importance of fitness with Go Noodle Brain Breaks. Students loved it!

August 2015 ** Students had a blast as Guy Louis and his Chautauqua Express entertained students and teachers alike with charming songs and exotic instruments from around the world.
