Good Job Hawks!  We submitted 1875 Box Tops which translates to $187.50 for our school!  Keep collecting them!  A big "CONGRATULATIONS" goes to Mrs. Frieling's Hawk Time class.  They turned in 437 Box Tops and are the winners of the PTA pancake breakfast!

Have you heard?! There is a PTA meeting Wednesday, March 7th at 7:00am! We will be taking nominations for PTA officers. If you are interested, come join us!

Thanks to our coordinator, Jan Rose, for two successful days of health screening! Thank you to everyone that volunteered their time! PTA was so glad to be able to provide lunch for the volunteers!

The Hawk Swap was a success! Thank you to all of the volunteers that helped with clothing collection, set-up, assisted with shopping, and helped clean it all up! Thanks to all of the people that donated clothing, to PODS for the use of their storage container, to Coronado High School for the use of their clothing racks and hangers, and the administration at Holmes for allowing us to do this. At the conclusion of the swap, there were a few items left. We were able to donate clothing to Coronado High School, Bristol Elementary, Women's Resource Agency, and the Marian House.

If you have supported any of our Sonic Night fundraisers, we thank you and we thank Sonic for their support! With these funds, the PTA was able to pay for an additional bus for the 7th graders to be able to go to Joann Fabrics for their Family and Consumer Science class.

The PTA was so excited to be able to purchase a much needed item for the school! The school was in need of an icemaker for various reasons, including science experiments, ice packs for the health room to treat those bumps and bruises, and of course, to keep water, from those great new water bottle fillers, cold!

A big thank you to everyone that contributed to the Valentine Teacher Appreciation event! It was a huge success!

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 www.screenagersmovie.com.

Have you heard about the BOX TOP CONTEST?! The Hawk Time group that collects the most Box Tops will win a pancake breakfast from the PTA! Collect those Box Tops and turn them in to the office with your students name and his/her Hawk Time teacher. The deadline to turn them in is February 23rd.
