Holmes’ Staff Weekly Update 



Holmes Notes:

  • America Reads Tutors for next semester.

    • The America Reads program is opening up slots for interested classrooms next semester.  If you are interested, or if you would like first hand information on how they support classrooms, please reach out to Quan.




  • Imagine Math and Imagine Learning:

    • The Middle of the Year Benchmark Assessment for ImagineMath and ImagineLiteracy is OPTIONAL.  There is no need to do MOY benchmark assessment this time unless you are using the data from this assessment to drive your instruction.


  • Building Closed During Holiday Break 12/23 - 1/5

    • The building will not be open over the Holiday Break as our custodial will be on vacation as well.  If you need access to the building over the break please contact me in advance so we can make arrangements.


  • Friendly Reminder...Holmes is Fragrance Free

    • Please be aware that we have staff members who have sensitivities to certain fragrances like colognes, perfumes, classroom spray and plug-in air fresheners, that can cause medical ailments (migraines, asthma, rashes, etc.).  Please be conscious of this as we move into the new year. Thank you for your support!
