We NEED Help !!!
"JA Day" is Friday, 2/2/2018, 8:30am-11: 00 am and the courses are taught by parent volunteers in your child's classroom. There will be an orientation prior to kickoff but you don't need to attend if you have previously taught JA in the classroom. There is no cap on the number of volunteers so feel free to sign up even if the position is filled.
Look at the list of classes below to see who needs your help the most. If your class is not on the list you have enough volunteers.
K-1 Mrs. Miranda
K-2 Mrs. Wuertz
Room 10- Mrs. Litsey
Room B21- Mr. Blase
Work It Circuit: We are still in need of a few volunteers to help with our Work IT Circuit drills. If you are the parent that has some free time during the day, take a look at the sign-ups and see where you can help.
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.
