Hello Holmes Families,
Please take a moment to complete this survey.
On Wednesday, July 8, we will do a culmination drive through to allow students to pick up their diplomas, awards if they earned them, and receive an 8th grade class pennant gift. This will take place between 8-10:00 am around the perimeter of the school. Out of respect for our neighbors who may still be sleeping at that time, we kindly ask you not to honk your cars or play loud music. To ensure traffic flows properly, please proceed from Plummer and Paso Robles and head southbound. The items will be distributed at specific locations according to students’ last names.
1) A-E Front of School
2) F-L Prairie Gate
3) M-R Near Corner of Prairie/Wish
4) S-Z Bus Gate (Vincennes Street between Paso Robles and Wish)
5) Yearbooks (large grass area in front of the school)
Some of our staff will be present to participate in this event so we hope to see all our students. Details to this message is also posted on our school website.
Makeup Days: July 10 and July 13 between 10:00 - 12:00 p.m.
