Press Releases



HOLMDEL (September  27, 2017)  –      The  Holmdel Township  Board of  Education is  extending its thanks  to  the  community  today  for  its support of the  Holmdel 2020  Initiative.  The  referendum was approved by  voters  yesterday  by  a  vote of  1020-675.  “The  entire  Board  of Education and  I are  very  pleased that the  town has overwhelmingly  approved The  Holmdel  2020  Initiative,”  said Board President Joseph  Hammer.  “This  critical  investment in our  schools' infrastructure  and our children's education will  dramatically  improve  our  district,”  he  added.   The  result  of more  than a  year of  collective  efforts,  the  40.3 million  dollar referendum is designed to  enhance  the  district’s academic, athletic  and arts infrastructure, and as a result, programs  at all levels, with a particular  emphasis  on updating  the William R. Satz  School with Science  Labs,  a  state-of  –the  art media center  and  renovated  classrooms.  The  Satz  building opened to Holmdel students in 1968 as Holmdel  Intermediate School and has remained  fairly unchanged since  it  was first constructed.   Superintendent Dr. Robert McGarry, echoed  Mr.  Hammer’s sentiment.  “We  are  thankful to the community  for  taking  the  time to vote for  this important and strategic  referendum,”  he  said.  “I am pleased  that the  community  agreed  with our position  that our  community  can’t allow  aging and outdated facilities to place  limits on  what our  students are  capable of achieving,”  he  added.   The  district  administration  and board will be working  in the  coming  months to  establish  a detailed timeline  for  the  various projects that are  part of  the overall  Holmdel 2020  Initiative. All projects expected to be  complete by  the start of  the  2020-2021 school  year.     The  full  scope  of the  approved  2020  Initiative can  be  viewed  on the district’s website.

The Negative Voices Inside Your Teenagers Head

This is what a teen might say about his or her self-talk:

I’m mad. I don’t know why. Sometimes I wake up mad, other days it creeps up me. I don’t like it. It doesn’t feel good. I wish I wasn’t so mad but I am. I can’t help it.

Everyday is a prison, trapped inside this changing body, doing the same day over and over. My whole life is made up of things ...
