About Holbrook Elementary School
Holbrook, built in 1962, is located on the West Hamilton “mountain”. Our school community is diverse. We come together here from different parts of the world and some of us are attending the school our parents attended! A number of our families are new to Canada and are learning English as a Second Language. Holbrook is also home to a Junior Comprehensive Communication class. Our special class students require transportation, as they come from all over the Hamilton-Wentworth area. The rest of our students live within walking distance of the school. We are a walking school and encourage physical exercise. Holbrook is also pleased to host the “Enrichment & Innovation Centre” for the HWDSB.
We have an active and supportive School Council. If you wish to be in touch with the School Council Mr. Mike Palma, Chair, can be reached by leaving a message at the school. (Telephone 905 385 5369)
Holbrook operates on a Balanced Day. Our school day is divided into three instructional periods, separated by two forty minute Nutrition Breaks that allow students time for eating and exercise. A Healthy Snack program, operated by volunteers, provides nutritious snack to any child who needs one. We are always looking for volunteers to support this valued program.

Holbrook also offers a First Base School Age Child Care program run by the YMCA, which supports families in the Holbrook area who need child care. Information about this child care program can be obtained by calling the YMCA SACC Co-ordinator at 905 317 4940.
These assessments capture performance at a specific point of time each year. The results are be considered together with other school information about student performance in reading, writing and mathematics when planning for student instruction.
