Bike to School Day

On Wednesday, May 9th, the students and staff of Holmes Elementary participated in Bike to School Day.  Adam Jenks, M.U.R.P., the Safe Routes to School Program Coordinator wrote:

"The Safe Routes to School Team at the Michigan Fitness Foundation would like to thank you for showing your community the meaning of “Come One, Come All!” by joining in with Bike to School Day 2018! The event saw over 40,000 students from over 200 schools in Michigan pedal their way to school on a gorgeous May morning. Your encouragement of active and safe traveling to school is paramount to the health and well-being of students." #SafeRoutesMI #B2SD


On December 6th, fifth graders from Holmes Elementary visited the Quicken Loans JA Finance Park in Detroit.  Students participated in an immersive simulation to prepare them for our economic system and discover how financial planning today can impact tomorrow.

Check out the amazing opportunities 826Michigan is offering students!
