Holmes’ 8th-grade event May 16

       Closing a week earlier this year because of a reconstruction project this summer, Holmes Middle School will hold its “Eighth Grade Celebration” Wednesday, May 16 at 6:30 p.m. in the Holmes Commons.
       A total of 238 students will be recognized for completing the eighth grade at Holmes with sufficient standing to go on to high school.
       Students have been attending school for longer days since last October to accumulate sufficient academic hours to allow the earlier departure.
       An interesting quirk of the sped-up schedule is that the final day of the three-day Boys' Track Classic will be Thursday, May 17 - the day after the end of school for Holmes. But Principal Brenda LeBrasse said the athletes were all loyal to Holmes and she was confident they would show up for their events.
