HOLA on YouTube

Gilman always has a smile on his face. This second grader is now in his second year at HOLA and his teachers say that he is quite outgoing and talkative. Shy doesn’t appear to be in his vocabulary. Gilman is a regular fixture on the soccer field, participating in HOLA’s leagues every fall and spring. No wonder Cristiano Rinaldo is his idol. In addition to soccer, Gilman likes to play basketball and swim. When at HOLA, his favorite activities are p.e. and cooking.

When asked what he likes most about HOLA, Gilman responded “I like doing my homework at HOLA, so I don’t have to do it at home. That way I get to spend more time with my Mom, Dad, Grandma and brother.” Gilman’s brother Roger is 12 and has been coming to HOLA for 6 years.
