October

Homecoming

Elementary students will be dismissed at noon on Friday, October 5th due to homecoming.  Our buses will run their normal routes leaving at noon on Friday. Students will be offered a sack lunch or can bring a lunch to eat at the school before being dismissed. If you do not want your child riding the bus home, please make other arrangements ahead of time.

Walk To School

Holyoke Elementary School will join schools from around the world to celebrate International Walk to School Day on October 10, 2018.

Walk to School Day events raise awareness of the need to create safer routes for walking and bicycling and emphasize the importance of issues such as increasing physical activity among children, pedestrian safety, traffic congestion and concern for the environment. The events build connections between families, schools and the broader community.

West side of town:  Each block walks to Kellogg St.  and walk together to Interocean Ave. crosswalk and cross together on to the elementary

Southeast Side: Walk to Gordon St. walk together to Morlan St. to elementary or high school.  South of the high school walk to Reynolds to Kellogg to the elementary.  

Northeast side: Walk to Morlan Ave on the North side of Denver and cross the highway together.

Reminders about Illness

This is the time of year that we start thinking about illness such as the flu.  Please make sure your child stays healthy by getting a good night’s rest, eating healthy meals, and washing hands regularly. Also remind your child of the following to avoid lice.

*Use your own hair brush or comb

*Use your own hair ties, bows, and clips

*Wear your own hat

Athletic Events Home and Away

If you and your family are attending an event at the school please make sure your child is with you at all times. Students should be sitting in the bleachers or stands with their parents and not running around, playing on the equipment, playing in the commons area, or other areas.  

Thank you for helping make sure all kids are safe during events and activities.

Breakfast

We want to remind you that the school does offer breakfast to all students in the district.  Our hope is that every child will start the day with a nutritious breakfast so they are able to be successful throughout the day.  If your child would like to participate in the breakfast option offered, please know that we start serving at 7:50 am and end when our bell rings at 8:05 am and on late start Mondays breakfast is offered from 8:40 am-8:55 am. Because this is a short time frame, please support your child by bringing him/her early enough that they have time to eat before the school day starts. 

Communication

With so many of us using technology and email, we would like to start sending out our monthly newsletter via email.  Please stop in the office and check with Mrs. Goytia to make sure your email is accurate.

Thank you for helping us be more efficient.
