Tuesday Update

This is Principal Rose with your weekly Tuesday update. 

Your child brought home two important documents for you to review this evening. Your child brought home two copies of our Staff, Parent, Student Compact for the 2018-19 school year. The copy on white paper should be reviewed, signed and returned to school. The copy on colored paper is your copy for home. We appreciate your attention to the commitments embedded within this document and we thank you in advance for your efforts and the support of your child in meeting those expectations. 

At our Open House on Tuesday, September 11th, we provided all parents with a copy of our Holmes' Parent Handbook. We are excited to have this resource available to our parents this year. It is our hope that you find this handbook to be valuable and supportive of our partnership, working together to improve your child’s learning and overall experience at Holmes Elementary. The Parent handbook is available on our school website and is also linked and attached.
