Principal Rose's Tuesday update:

Holmes Elementary is now a Nut and Banana free school. Thank you for keeping our students and staff healthy and safe.

Holmes Elementary NWEA testing will continue through September 8th.

Holmes Elementary Open House and Curriculum Night is scheduled for Thursday, August 24th from 6 -7:30 P.M. We look forward to meeting our Holmes families at this event, see you there. 

Monthly birthday celebration will take place on Friday, August 25th. If you have a child that celebrates a Birthday in August and you would like for them to celebrate at school, please contact their teacher to make arrangements to bring in the goodies for the celebration. 

Students in the 3rd through 5th grade that attended Holmes last year were given a Summer reading challenge. Students that met this reading challenge should bring their completed BINGO card to the classroom teacher no later than August 25th. All students that met this challenge will be included in our celebration party on Friday, August 25th. You have a few more days to complete the challenge and bring in your documentation, happy reading. 

This weekend we have two community events that I would like to see our community support. This Friday - Sunday, August 25th - 27th will be the Ypsilanti Heritage Festival at Riverside park near Depot Town. This event will take place Noon - 10 P.M. on Friday, 10 A.M. to 10 P.M. on Saturday and 11 A.M. to 6 P.M. on Sunday. Joe Dulin Day at Parkridge Park will be held on Saturday, August 26th from 11 A.M. to 6 P.M. I look forward to both of these events and I hope to see you out there representing our community and our schools.
