We've Got Spirit!!

Here at Holmes Road Elementary School, we have INCREDIBLE school spirit! We celebrate together as a Holmes Road Community any chance we get. This year, we'd like to invite our students to demonstrate their school spirit on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays with us. Every Monday is JOY DAY this year at Holmes Road! On Mondays, please feel free to wear any apparel that supports a theme of joy and kindness. Your children will likely see our staff members wearing reminders of joy, kindness, and positivity! Wednesday is "Bright Futures Day" this year at Holmes Road. Students are welcome to dress like their favorite future profession, or they may wear a favorite college sweatshirt or any shirt representing a trade or business they respect. Fridays are Holmes Road Spirit Days- students are welcome to wear any Holmes Road gear or our school colors, which are blue, yellow, and white. We can not wait to see our kiddos participating in our weekly spirit days this year, and we're looking forward to sharing loads of pictures of our adorable kiddos with you in future Roadrunner Reports!

We Want To Hear Your Voice!

Throughout the year, we will be reaching out to ask for your insights, thoughts, and impressions regarding our Holmes Road Community and how we can be our best for our students' happiness, safety, and success. In addition to some survey-type outreach, we are also looking for parents to lend their voice to several of our building-based committees, such as our School Improvement Team and our Guardians of Equity committee. If you are interested in lending your thoughts and talents to our community in this way, please reach out to Mrs. Tsang at Looking forward to working collaboratively with you this year to make our school community a better place!!
