Principal's Message

Welcome to Holcomb Elementary School. My name is Bert Stark and I am the acting principal at Holcomb Elementary School. I have been in education for 30 years as principal of Vandergriff, Butterfield Trail, and Jefferson Elementary Schools. 

I look forward to working with the students, parents, teachers, and the community during the 2017-2018 school year.

Our school is a fabulous place to learn while having lots of great experiences. Where else can you - celebrate and honor students who write wonderful stories through the Young Author's celebration? Celebrate and experience other cultures through the Multicultural celebration? Visit the Principal's Office to read? Dance the night away at our wonderful dance nights. Why, at Holcomb Elementary, of course! Since Holcomb's opening, students, parents, and teachers continue to work together and flourish as a school community.

I am very excited about the many accomplishments of students and staff. We are striving to excel, aiming high, thinking of ways in which we can motivate every person to do his/her best, creating an environment that is safe and nurturing, and always making sure that everyone is "buzzing" with excitement for learning. What makes Holcomb "Simply the Best?" Students, Teachers, Staff, Parents, and Community working together to foster a sense of pride in our school and a lifelong love of learning.

Rise and Shine!
Every Friday at 7:45 am!
