Advising the school administration on the overall improvement of the school.
Stephanie Carlson, Chair
As we close out the 2018-2019 school year at Holmes Middle School we would like to invite parents and staff to consider joining us during the upcoming school year. The SAC committee provides a wonderful place at the cross section of key issues to provide input and support to the school on many relevant topics. There is so much you can contribute!
This year has been one of transition and we applaud how well the administration has worked with parents, students and the district to maintain the high level of intentionality and care for the students. The teachers and staff have collaborated marvelously, and we wish them ENERGY and CREATIVITY as they close out the year and hopefully rest over the summer!
This year the SAC committee has worked on the following issues:
- Tracked with the school administration during the transition period to interim principal to ensure adequate communication.
- Participated in the initial stages of the principal search.
- Discussion and tracking of testing data paying careful attention due to the new testing format/timing/scope and sequence that came from the district this fall.
- Planning the 50th Anniversary of Holmes (ultimately moved to coincide with Coronado’s homecoming weekend on September 20/21,)
- Focused discussion on strategies to how to best market Holmes and to reach out to our feeder schools. Part of this has been re-imagining the Hawk Nights and how to reach out to 5th grade students and their families through this event.
- Discussions on getting parent input on our Holmes website through a survey.
- Planned a “debrief” for Holmes 8th grade parents and students.
Please join us next year on the 4th Friday of every month from 7:30-8:30am in the Media Center!
