I am the Vice President of Philanthropy for Pi Beta Phi sorority at The University of Alabama and we work a good bit with Holt Elementary School. Our philanthropy is Links to Literacy and we work to improve literacy in low income schools around Tuscaloosa County. Each week, a group of Pi Phis go to the school to read with students individually. The children there are the sweetest and most grateful children I have seen in a long time. Organizing events (and being an Education major) I am constantly volunteering and working in local Elementary Schools. Holt Elementary, by a long shot, has the most appreciative students, staff and faculty I have ever seen. The school's office, library, and gym are all in great need of improvement; however; the entire school is so grateful for the roof over the head and any supplies they are given. The teacher's eyes light up when they see us there to assist them and the children's smiles grow big when they see us walking in with books. Holt Elementary is diong everything they can to give these children the knowledge they need in order to succeed in life and the extra money would not only benifit the teachers and staff, but the future students as well.

Holt Elementary is not a wealthy school, but the caring of its teachers, staff, and administration makes it rich. HES is a loving, positive school!

The principal Mrs. J. Harris has made alot of changes for the school. From what I've seen it's for the better. There are alot of changes still to be made but I know that takes time. Parent involvement could be better but with the help of PTO and teachers they are trying to come up with ideas to help increase participation from the parents. It is sad to see that some of the teachers don't have the same aggressiveness and determination that the principal has to ensure that the children are receiving all available to them. I commend those teachers who do not mind going the extra mile for the welfare of the students. Without these teachers all of our children would be lost and unprepared for the years ahead.
