The Lion's Roar

Week of August 24, 2015

Welcome to the 2014-2015 School Year!

It is truly a pleasure to have each and every one of you as a part of the Zan Wesley Holmes Jr. Middle School Faculty! The days of summer are over and it is time to get back to the art of teaching and learning. As many of you know, every new school year brings both challenges and successes. The key is to work together as a family to forge our way ahead as we aim to develop a new generation of teachers, lawyers, doctors and YES, even presidents! Show your Lion Pride and help us take our students, our school, and our community to the next level of student achievement.
