Don't Be Late - Win Something Great!
Do you want to be entered to win great prizes? It’s easy, just come to school on time each day! This raffle is to encourage students to be on time for school. Students who arrive at school each day by 8:00 a.m. will have their name entered into the raffle. We will choose five names, and those students will be called down to the office to choose a prize! All prizes have been donated by various businesses/organizations in Oak Park as well as from our Holmes School PTO.
The first drawing will take place on Monday, October 1st.
Welcome to The Leader in Me
The Leader in Me provides our school with the vision and language to lead the school in a way that addresses all areas of development. As each child discovers and develops their unique gifts and talents, they are given opportunities to lead. As leaders, they become active, engaged partners in their own education and their self-confidence, responsibility, and initiative grows. The children quickly understand the benefits of different gifts and talents; they learn to listen to new ideas, work together to achieve results, and motivate one another to be the best.
We are excited to share these new opportunities. Together, we will watch each and every child grow throughout the year.
