O.W. Holmes Middle School Parent Teacher Association (PTA) includes families who live in Alexandria, Annandale, and Falls Church. Holmes Middle School is home to almost 1000 students in grades 6-8, representing more than 29 different languages and over 50 different nationalities. You may recognize many of our Holmes Hawks families as they are frequent patrons of local businesses.
One of the goals for our PTA is to provide additional services and programs to supplement where Fairfax County resources are not able to support our students and teachers. Examples include:
Student Field Trips Teacher Grants
After School Clubs Technology
Staff Appreciation Heritage Night, and more
Our ability to enrich the academic experiences of our students will only be possible through active parent and community involvement and generous monetary and in-kind donations from business partners. We urge you to partner with O.W. Holmes MS PTA and help us provide strong support for our school. We are asking for a donation of $500 or more, but any amount is greatly appreciated. We would also appreciate in-kind donations of goods or services.
Resources available to FCPS schools vary widely depending on the level of community support and parent involvement. In recent years, Holmes’s PTA budget has hovered around $6,000; other middle school budgets typically range from $30,000 to $100,000. We all need to step up and make a difference for our community and our students. Please join us.
O.W. Holmes Middle School PTA is a 501(c)(3) operating under the auspices of the Virginia and national PTA organizations making your contribution tax deductible. We will also recognize you and/or your business on our website and in our newsletter, Facebook posts, and Tweets.
|Thank you for your consideration and generous support for O.W. Holmes Middle School PTA!
