Students only have six more days of school until Thanksgiving Break. There last day will be Monday, November 19, 2018. There are parent/teacher conferences scheduled during the school day on Tuesday, November 20 (students will not be at school).
This is a very busy week for our ushering contract with Kent State. We have Kent State Basketball games on Tuesday and Friday night and one on Sunday afternoon. Our last two football games are coming up. One’s this week on Thursday evening and last on is on the Friday after Thanksgiving. The top three classrooms with the most ushers will have pizza party in December.
Thank You – I would like to give a big shout out to Amy Soyars for organizing the Halloween Gala and her husband, Jim, for being the awesome DJ for the dance again this year.

Once again we will be collecting Box Tops, and Acme receipts. Holden School receives money back from the Box Tops and Acme receipts. In order to receive money from the Acme receipts we must reach a specific amount on the receipts. The receipts that have community cash back on the bottom can be turned in to Holden. The community cash back program runs from September – December. Thank you in advance for your help.
Saturday was our first Kent State football game we ushered. It was wet but the Flashes pulled it off. This year we will be awarding the top three classrooms for ushering volunteers with a pizza party. Right now the top three rooms are Longanecker, Wollam, Sweigart, and Yeager. I would also like to thank the volunteers listed below for their help on Saturday.
