Welcome to the Holmes PTA website. 


Holmes Middle School has an active PTA that supports the Holmes community in many ways. The community includes students, parents/guardians, staff, and even the surrounding neighborhoods and businesses. Our goal is to provide opportunities for everyone to be involved, share information about PTA events, sponsor school-wide activities that are fun, informative, and positive, and raise additional funds for the benefit of our students, staff, and building.


Some of the events and activities include a fall book fair, quarterly Bingo nights, parent forums, informal lunches and lattes with Holmes administrators (sponsored by SAC), the Reflections program, a clothing exchange, staff appreciation events, and free vision/hearing screenings. Our many volunteers are key to making these programs successful and making Holmes a great place to attend school.

If you would like to join PTA, please click on the membership tab at the top of this page. We look forward to seeing you at our general meetings for the 2014/2015 school year. All are welcome!

Please join our Facebook Group at "Holmes Hawks PTA - Colorado Springs."

Available now!  Volunteer opportunities and sign ups at SignUpGenius.com.  Check out the Volunteers page for instructions on how to find volunteer opportunities.
