Have you heard your student(s) talk about Courtyard Time?!  If not, you should ask him/her about it!It is a short period of time right after lunch that is used to play checkers, Connect 4, jump rope, play tether ball, basketball, corn hole, football, spike ball, 4 square, juggle, plus much more.  The PTA, SAC, and the administration have worked very hard to make this happen.  We are happy with the results and thankful for the time and effort put forth.  We even had a PTA grandpa make the Connect 4 and donate it to the cause!  The PTA contributed money from the May 2017 Color Battle funds to help purchase some of the equipment and has plans to fund replacement equipment or additional games.  We were also able to use the points accumulated from the Labels for Education program to acquire some footballs and balls for juggling.  A big thank you to all involved!  This has been a great addition to our school!!

The next PTA meeting is February 7th at 7:00am. Please plan to join us!

Have you heard about the water bottle filling stations?! We are so excited that the PTA was able to have three of these filling stations installed at Holmes using a portion of the May 2017 Color Battle funds. They provide a place to fill a water bottle with a refreshing drink of water!

Holmes PTA is getting ready for another great Hawk Swap! We are looking for gently used clothing that would fit middle school kids.  We will be collecting items January 22nd-February 20th. Students will have an opportunity to shop for free during their lunch February 21st-23rd.

Have you noticed the large storage POD on the south side of Holmes?
POD has generously donated this storage unit for your convenience. You can drop off your Hawk Swap donations curbside before/after school on Tues. and Thurs. starting January 30th through February 20th. We will still have a donation box inside the main doors for Monday through Friday donations.
Thank you to all of you that have already donated.  We are off to a great start!

There will be a special screening of Screenagers on February 1st at 6:30pm at Coronado. You can get some additional information about this documentary at

Box Tops

Have you been collecting Box Tops?  We want them!!  The deadline for the first semester collection is Friday, October 27th.  When submitting your Box Tops, make sure to write the name of your student on the baggie or envelope.  The collection box is in the front office.  Prizes will be awarded for the most Box Tops submitted. 

Every Box Top is worth ten cents, which doesn't sound like much, but does add up quickly.  Did you know that you can also help by getting the Box Top app?  There are featured offers that can be redeemed for Box Tops. All that you have to do is choose Holmes as your school and scan your grocery receipt.    The Box Top website( is also a great place to enter sweepstakes to win bonus Box Tops for the school.
Thanks to everyone that attended movie night! It was great to see so many families.
