New Holland-Middletown Elementary School District 88 is a K-8 school district serving the communities of New Holland and Middletown in Logan County, Illinois.  Students graduating from NH-M attend school at Lincoln Community High School in Lincoln, Illinois.

NH-M Elementary #88 is one of the highest performing school districts in the area, both academically and financially.  Students consistently meet or exceed state standards in Reading and Math.  In 2012, 100% of the all 8th grade students met or exceeded state standards at the time of graduation (Source).  For the past few years, NH-M has been awarded "Financial Recognition" by the Illinois State Board of Education, which is the highest financial rating acquired by Illinois school districts. 

NH-M continues to explore new and innovative methods of delivering instruction, including Encore (enriched core) classes for middle grades, deploying Google Chromebooks and Apple iPads to all students, and offering individualized instruction to both remedial and gifted students.

Explore our new website, which will continue to provide updates on the many positive things occurring in our school district.  It's a great day to be a MUSTANG!  #makingadifference

​Good Morning, New Holland-Middletown!  Please stand and join me for the Pledge of Allegiance:

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic, for which it stands, one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

NH-M School Pledge:  I will be the best I can be.  I will come to school prepared.  I will be on time.  I will not argue or fight.  I will be honest and fair.  I will believe in myself.

CATCH Tip of the Day: Do you remember what the P in MVP stands for?  A CATCH MVP stands for someone who moves and stays active, values healthy eating, and practices healthy habits every day.  So the P stands for Practices healthy habits every day!  The CATCH Tip of the Day comes to us from Hearty Heart, who reminds us to eat healthy and exercise every day.  Try to eat at least 5 fruits and vegetables every day and be active for at least 30 minutes after school each day.

There is a collection box in front of the office for all Toys for Tots donations.  Please make sure to have all donations turned in by Friday, December 19th.
