TODAY: Holmes Annual Halloween Parade

Students may come to school in their Halloween Costumes. At 1:45pm all classrooms will assemble outside on the lower playground for a parade with Halloween Music.

Due to COVID restrictions, the parade will be for students and staff only.

Please follow these guidelines:

  • Face masks will be required throughout the school day.
  • Students who bring costume masks can only wear them during the parade.
  • Please do not send costume props that are replicas of weapons, including swords, knives, guns, etc.
  • Scary and gruesome costumes are not permitted at school, including scary masks, fake blood, etc.


Our first 14 classrooms will begin hands on courses in gardening and cooking.

We will plant our first harvest in our newly purchased garden beds and learn "Farm to Table" Holmies style!!! 

Look out for our Spotlight on Sage Garden to be published via Konstella next week!

Let's Get Social!

Did you know Konstella has Social Groups? These are special school community groups that allow families to connect online with resources, information sharing and friendship. 

We are pleased to offer two NEW social groups:

Holmes Military Families-Are you or your family connected to active-duty, Guard, Reserve and/or veterans? Join us!  This is a place for families to connect, make friends, have fun, and create memories. This group was established by military families for military families. CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE

Parents of Gamers- Are you a parent who needs a place to ask other parents about your child's digital world? Join us! Our goal is to share usernames to verify actual friends in real life, schedule group game timing, and share general tips and tricks. 


Holmes Elementary, as an institution, does not endorse any game. That all participation with this Konstella social group is at the will and discretion of the participants. All statements and opinions within this group do not reflect Holmes Elementary, rather only reflect the individual who is making a statement/opinion.
