Tips To Pick Up & Drop Off Children Safely:

(we may think these are obvious but many still don't practice these simple tips.) 

**POSITION CHILD SO THEY EXIT CURBSIDE, AWAY FROM TRAFFIC.**

 

 
Monday, February 26!: Kids in Motion Jogathon Sponsorships Due 
Monday, February 26 is the last day for sponsors to get their logos on the Kids in Motion Jogathon t-shirt!  The t-shirts are not only worn the day of the event by nearly 600 students, but they are worn around the community long after it concludes as well, making sponsoring the Jogathon a very worthwhile investment! Additionally, sponsorships will help us to reach our goal of $32,000 and continue providing ALL of our students with critical enrichment activities such as Arts Attack, music, Junior Achievement, field trips, community events and SO much more! To become a sponsor, please visit http://holmes.myfunrun.com/3/adbook.htm
 
If you are unable to sponsor the Jogathon but still want to help us reach our goal, you can make a donation to your student by clicking on "Donate to a Participant" and searching for your student by first and/or last name. Every gift makes a difference!
 

Our Annual Spelling Bee is here and we need helpers. If you have helped volunteer in the past please consider doing it again. This is very fun and you don't actually have to be a great speller. The words will be shown to the judges also. 

 

On February 27th,  we will have grades 2 and 4 competing to bee their Grade Level Spelling Bee winner.

 4th Grade will start @ 8:45 am

2nd Grade will start @ 11:05 am

 

On March 1st we will have grades 1, 5, and 3 competing to bee their Grade Level Spelling Bee winner.

 1st Grade will start @ 8:45 am

5th Grade will start @ 11:05am

3rd Grade will start @ 1:20pm

 

We need parent volunteers to help with judging.

HOLMES’ ANNUAL INK CARTRIDGE AND CELL PHONE CONTEST

It’s time for the annual ink cartridge and cell phone contest.  We’re collecting used printer ink cartridges, old cell phones, and used laser printer cartridges.   Mark your items with your child’s room number so the classroom will get credit for it.  The winning class will receive a $50 check to spend as it decides.

Please do NOT send in previously remanufactured items and toner cartridges.

Thank you for recycling and keeping these items out of the landfill! 

Thanks to the Klonowski Family for taking the lead on this!
