2019-20 Clubs and Activities
Below are just a few of the opportunities to join clubs and participate in school activities at Holmes.
Any student at Holmes may volunteer to be on the Student Senate. Our Student Senate works in many ways to make Holmes a better school for all students. Students plan, decorate, and work during activity nights, plan spirit days and participate in different charities and community service projects. Listen to the morning announcements to find out how to join!
Holmes Washington DC Trip
This year’s Washington DC trip is scheduled for Friday, May 8 through Monday, May 11. Much more information will be available in coming weeks!
Holmes Community Service
Holmes Students are asked to complete two hours of Community service every school year. This is also part of the PTSA's "Youth Making a Difference Program".
Thank you very much for your service!

Holmes National Junior Honor Society
In order to be considered for NJHS, students must have a 3.667 cumulative GPA for first semester and have received 1's and 2's for citizenship.
Shortly after first semester grades are submitted, Mrs. O'Connor will meet with students that have met the GPA and citizenship requirements for consideration in joining the Holmes chapter of NJHS.
Students will get an invitation early in February and will meet with Mrs. O'Connor to find out the additional requirements and to learn more about the application process. One of those requirements will be 20 community service hours, so start collecting them now! Anything from the time a student leaves 6th grade until the applications are due in April can count for hours. Students will keep track of their own hours on a community service tracking form that will be made available at the beginning of each school year.
8th graders who are members of NJHS will receive all communication through a special GOOGLE CLASSROOM site.
