HOLMES PTA WEEKLY RUNDOWN 

 

MINUTES IN MOTION EVENT AND JOGATHON

The 2022 Minutes in Motion Event was a success! Mr. Saipe was on the mic spinning all the Kidz Bop jams. The 5th grade class of 2022 unveiled their Legacy Gift, "Holmie the Hawk." Every student received a pair of Holmes Hawks sunglasses and an otter pop to cool down. Most importantly, the kids had FUN!

 A BIG thank you to the Holmes community and Caitlyn McTaggart our VP of Ways and Means. We surpassed our goal and raised $49,635 and counting!

These funds will support our choral music, SAGE garden and cooking, art, field trips and more! 

FINAL RESULTS TO BE PUBLISHED NEXT WEEK.
