March 13th: "Work To Rule"

 We want to remind you of the “Work To Rule" day, next Tuesday, March 13. This is part of "Wave 2" in our efforts to win a fair contract with the district.
Here is some more information:
 *   We are going to stand together with teachers across the district by strictly observing our 6-hour and 35-minute on-site day.
 *   On Tuesday, March 13, please do not do any before/after-school extras.
 *   This is not to sell our students short, and it is not to make any of our school’s programs or routines fail for the day, but it is to show the district our value by demonstrating what schools look like without the countless extra hours we provide to our students.
 *   Our on-site day is 8:10-3: 15 PM.

 

 

 

March 15th @ 6pm: PTA Association Meeting 

Do you remember at the beginning of the year when we asked you to join our Holmes PTA Association? Did you know that being a member doesn't stop there? We are always looking for new input and ideas to help improve the way we do things. When you come to our association meetings, we hope when you leave you feeling like you learned something new about our PTA or feel like you shared some valuable information to help impact the lives of all of our Holmes children. Meetings are meetings, however, new ideas help to remind us as parents of all the potential things we can offer our young kids. Please consider coming to our upcoming  PTA association meeting. We will be discussing our upcoming 2018/2019 PTA Board positions ( That does not mean you will be appointed to a seat for showing up... LOL).

 

 

Childcare and light dinner will be provided.
