The yearbook is now in the works and we need your photos to make it great! We are four months into the school year and our kids have made many memories so far - Back to School, Walk/Ride to School, Campus Beautification, Halloween Parade and Carnival, Holiday program, Field Trips, Movie Nights, etc. I know you all took photos of your littles! Please share photos of them on your classroom pages here on Konstella. To make things easier for our yearbook committee, this will be the primary place for yearbook photos to be uploaded. If you have photos the yearbook can't be without, please share them by the end of MARCH!


So here is my Security Speach...

When uploading photos one of the BIGGEST rules is:

If you get an alert/message that has a child name whose parent wishes for their child's photo not be posted- DON'T POST IT! 

If you are unsure who this child is or whether they might be in your photo (even in the background)- DON'T POST IT! 

If you choose to break the security protocol you will be notified.


I have attached instructions on making a photo album or adding to an existing album. They are also located in the How To's/FAQ folder under Files. Thank you so much, the yearbook will look great because of you!



February 5th  – March 2nd- 




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!

Do you have a green thumb or maybe just a few extra minutes while you are on campus picking up or dropping off?  

We need a small group of people who would be interested in joining the Holmes Garden Club.  The Garden Club will share in various small tasks to keep our gardens happy and looking beautiful. 

These tasks are not frequent nor time-consuming when shared among members of a group.  We primarily need folks to water the native plant gardens, fertilize the apple tree once per month, prune, and other similar tasks. 

Sign Up Here so Makela (our Campus Chairperson) can contact the club together for further details and task instructions.
