Our Growing Lost and Found
On you next visit to school, please be sure to stop by our lost and found rack and bin. We have many jackets, sweaters, lunch boxes, and water bottles that we know are missing their owner. If you’re unable to stop in be sure to remind your child to check for missing items.
It is helpful to put your child’s first and last name on their belongings. This way we can help ensure they find their way back to their owner.
Celebrating Halloween at Holmes
Detailed information will be coming home next week. We are finalizing our parade and party times.
We recognize that not all students participate in these activities and therefore plan alternate activities for students in the library with Ms. Jaros. If you have an objection to your child participating in the fall parade and classroom celebrations, please let their teacher know.
Celebrate Holmes Staff
Families, have you noticed a Holmes teacher or staff member who deserves a compliment or a thank you? Has this person made a difference for your child? Please share the reason in a brief email to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that we may recognize and thank them!
