The Huskie Huddle, Holman Middle School’s sixth grade transition program, will be held on Thursday, August 30, 2018 here at Holman. Brochures detailing the event were distributed through elementary schools to rising sixth grade students and are also available here. The Huskie Huddle is a wonderful event full of excitement and great information for our future Huskies! We highly recommend all students attend if they are able. Please be sure to register your child to participate either through the paper registration form or online link provided within the Huskie Huddle brochure. All information regarding the event and specifics on how to register can be found in the brochure provided above.
According to the National Weather Service, our area is expecting severe thunderstorms Friday afternoon. Therefore, we are postponing the school carnival.
It will now take place on June 5 and will be during the school day from 12:30-3p. Hopefully, more students will be able to attend and you will not have to worry about transportation. Tickets will cost $5 and will be sold closer to the date of the carnival.
We would like to thank those who had volunteered to help supervise the inflatables. Since the times and needs will be changing, we will no longer need parent/guardian assistance in volunteering. Should June 5, be a rainy day as well, we will move it indoors and allow the students to attend in shifts.
If you have questions please contact Mrs. Tignor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each year, the Holman SCA holds an after school fun carnival for students. This event will take place next Friday, May 18 from 3:15-5:30.
