Holmes’ Walk/Bike to School Day! Parade Departs at 8:10am Clairemont Covenant Church 5255 Mt. Ararat Dr. * Students, parents, teachers and staff are all invited to join us! Encourage your kiddos to make POSTERS, wear your HOLMES SPIRIT WEAR!

We could also use some parent assistance....



Fall Fundraiser!!!  We're into the LAST WEEK of our Fall Fundraiser and we're at less than half of our goal--eeeek!!  We've only raised $12,000 of the $25,000 target we're hoping to hit, which puts a lot of our school programs and activities in jeopardy.

Every dollar counts towards helping us keep the programs and activities our school has come to know and love--choral music, our art program, classroom field trips, school software subscriptions...these are just a few of the programs that PTA supports.  ANY amount you are able to donate will help! 


If you haven't done so yet, NOW IS THE TIME TO DONATE!! Donate now via this link:

Mountain Mike's Dining for Dollars is Back! - Thursday, October 17th

Order delivery for a work lunch or easy pick up after practices or stop in and have a drink and pizza with your Holmes pals! You know it by now...just mention Holmes. Here's a tip: my kids always request we order extra so there's enough pizza for lunch (& maybe even breakfast).
