Holmes Elementary News

Tuesday Update (11/13/18)

This is Principal Rose with your weekly Tuesday update. 

Tomorrow, Wednesday November 14th and Thursday, November 15th are half days with an 11 A.M. dismissal. Both days we will be conducting Parent-Teacher Conferences. Our goal is 100% attendance at conferences, so please take the time to show your support of your child’s education.

Parents, if you arrive after 7:45 A.M. you must come in and sign your child into school. We will not buzz students in after 7:45 A.M. if they are not accompanied by an adult. Please do not abandon your child at the front door after 7:45 A.M., you must sign them in. Thanks for your cooperation. 

Our average daily attendance rates have fallen below 90%. This is disappointing when you think about the fact that more than 10% of our students miss important instruction each day. Attendance is important, think about what would happen if you missed 10% of the days at work? We are learning each day, do your part to ensure your child is here to be a part of the learning that takes place each and every day at Holmes Elementary. 

Please continue collecting Box Tops at home and sending them to school with your child. We will use the funds raised to support Fun Friday Clubs and other extracurricular learning opportunities.
