Tips To Pick Up & Drop Off Children Safely:

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

**Do not block crosswalks or fire zone areas. Explain the purpose of these to your children. *


Thank you for making this year's Jogathon a huge success! With your support, we have surpassed our goal and raised $39K to date! If you haven't had a chance to participate, don't worry--Donations will be accepted online until Friday, March 23. 


We know you’re all anxiously awaiting the lap results from the jogathon. If you or you know someone who has received a link outside of PTA communications,  the link does not show the final results. The data is still being audited and verified which will take a few days. Please be patient and we'll get the link out with the accurate information as soon as possible.



You can help us raise money for Holmes at no cost to you by simply shopping thru Amazon.
Sign in and sign up for Oliver Wendell Holmes. Now thru 3/31, your first amazon smile purchase will earn 1.5% back for our school. 
Feel free to share this with your friends and family. It’s simple and easy way to earn extra money for our kids.


Congratulations to Room 12, Mrs. Celle’s third-grade classroom!  They brought in the most items for the contest and will be rewarded with $50!  

Mr. Rodriguez’s classroom was a close 2nd place followed by Mr. Blase’s, Ms. Wuertz’s and Mrs. Carlson’s classrooms.  

Thank you to all the rooms for their participation. Thanks to Kathy and Pete Klonowski for running this program. We all helped the environment by recycling and raised a little money for the school.
