This is Mr. Anglin with your weekly update for Tuesday, November 19, 2019.
As the holiday season begins and snow is on it’s way, it is important to remember that even occasional absences can add up. Missing just two days a month can cause students to fall behind. We greatly enjoy seeing your child here “All Day, Every Day.”
One of our goals at Holmes is to have at least 95% of our students attend school everyday.
Last week we did not meet our attendance goal mainly due to our 2 half days for parent teacher conferences. Half Days are still instructional days and we ask for your support in making sure you child attends when they are able. Thank you in advance for your support.
Happening At Holmes:
Household Survey Prize - $25 Gift Card! If you haven’t already, please complete and return the Household Survey to your child’s teacher for your chance to win a $25 gift card. The household survey information is very important because it allows Holmes to get funding from the state to support our students' achievement, as well as, provide free breakfast, lunch, and snacks for our students. Thank you in advance for your time and support! Household Survey
Parent Teacher Conferences - If you were unable to attend your child’s Parent Teacher Conference, which were held last Wednesday and Thursday, important documents will be going home with your child. Please return any required forms you receive as soon as possible.
Healthy School Food Pantry - The pantry includes dry goods, dairy, meat, produce, and prepared foods at NO COST to Holmes families. It is open every Friday from 12:30 - 2:30 pm, there will be signs to help you locate the pantry. Call Mrs. Huget at 734-221-2109 with any questions.
