First Day of School – Augusta Township

Happy First Day of School, Holmes Families! 

 

Start your morning with this Welcome Video from your Holmes PTA!

A FEW THINGS TO REMEMBER:

1. We're all in this together! -- You may be at home, but you are NOT alone. Your fellow parents and your teachers are just a text, an email or a phone call away. Don't be afraid to lean on each other during this challenging time.

2. Stay Positive!! -- Things WILL go wrong--technology fails, you have the wrong Zoom link, you did the wrong assignment...the important thing to remember is that it's not the end of the world, so try to have a sense of humor and roll with it. Our kids feel and take on our stress, so if you stay positive, chances are, they'll stay positive!

3. Distance learning won't be forever. -- Take each day as it comes, but try to remember that this is not forever. One day we'll all be back at school and distance learning will be a 'distant' memory.
