The Spring Carnival has been postponed until June 6th. Tickets will be $5 and sold closer to the date of the carnival. It will be during the school day from 12:30-3pm.
We would like to thank those who had volunteered to help supervise the inflatables. Since the times and needs will be changing, we will send out a new form closer to the date for those who wish to still donate their time. Should June 6 be a rainy day as well, we will move it indoors and allow the students to attend in shifts.
Richmond International Raceway President Dennis Bickmeier and NASCAR XFINITY Series driver Matt Tifft made a pit stop at Holman Middle to talk with the students about the science behind NASCAR.
