Welcome Letter

Welcome Back Holmes Families!

I am excited to return as Principal of Holmes Elementary for the 2020-21 school year!  I am looking forward to continuing our partnership as we work together to support the achievement of our students at Holmes.  The Holmes Elementary staff has been preparing to make this an engaging year for your child. My goal is to offer students stability during the uncertainty of the pandemic.  To support this goal, our teachers have been planning to offer a rigorous in-person and virtual instructional experience, while providing a safe and supportive environment for your child to thrive.  We are all looking forward to the start of a great year. 

For those who I have not had an opportunity to meet yet, I am a Ypsilanti native, and I am extremely proud to be from this community.  As I begin my 16th year in education, I am looking forward to continuing to serve this community and lead our students to success.  I am the parent of a 3rd and 5th grade student, and I recognize how the beginning of a school year brings the excitement of new hopes and experiences for our students.  I am always reminded at this time of the year how important it is to provide all students with an opportunity to be successful so they can accomplish their goals and aspirations.  

As members of the school community, the Holmes staff hopes that you feel valued and welcomed.  We are hopeful that you will be able to take advantage of the opportunities to participate in the educational process with your child this school year. I am confident through your partnership we will make the 2020-21 school year a success!

Educationally Yours,

Gregory Anglin, Principal
