Message from the Principal

Welcome to Holmes Elementary School!

Holmes is a building that serves students in Kindergarten through Fifth grades. There are approximately 500 students enrolled at Holmes. Holmes Staff will provide independent and collaborative educational experiences to develop and promote each student’s intellectual, physical, social and emotional growth. We try to provide services to support all students. Support services include gifted education, special education, speech and language services, occupational therapy, physical therapy and counseling. The district also provides services via a school counselor, mental health therapist, and case manager.

Our children participate in a range of programs including:  art, music, physical education, media, character and career education. Each day our students are taught to model character, integrity and maturity through our PBIS programs as they strive to grow into productive citizens. Each week we celebrate our positive behavior by picking a MVP from each classroom. 

Holmes staff know we need our partnerships with parents and the community. These relationships foster learning and create strength in our school.  The staff at Holmes encourage everyone to take an active role in their students' education by communicating with the staff, attending school events, joining the PTO, and practice skills with your student everyday. Working together helps our students accomplish so much!

Honoring Tradition. Building Community.  Educating for Tomorrow. 

Mrs. Cortney Karshner-Rethmel, 
Principal
