Box Tops and Acme Receipts

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.

Ushering Update

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.

Change in Dismissal

Dear Holden Parents,

Dismissal is a very crazy time of the day. We are trying to make sure that students are getting messages that may impact how they are getting home. Most of our messages come into the office around 3:00 and we begin dismissing students at 3:10. If we miss a call and it is on voicemail we may not get the message until after students leave. We are asking for your help to insure that all students arrive home safely. If there is any change to your child’s dismissal procedure please call our office before 2:00 or send a note to your child’s teacher.

Thank you for your help.
