Attention - students that like to ride your bike! This Friday is the start of the Holmes Bicycle Club. To join, all you have to do is ride your bike to school and check in with Ms Bauer or Mrs. Green. They will be in front of the school, by the bike rack between 7:30 and 7:50 with a banana or a pencil for you. The Holmes Bicycle Club happens every Friday in September and October. Attendance awards will be given for those that ride 6, 7 and 8 Fridays. See the green posters or talk to Ms Bauer or Mrs. Green for more details

There will be a Cedar Falls High Tiger cheer clinic for any 7th-9th grader on Saturday September 10th.  There is information available in the front office


Student Council Elections for Officers will be September 14th. We elect 5 people for the positions of President, Vice-President, Recording Secretary, Treasurer and Director of Public Relations. Candidates should demonstrate good character, maintain good academic standing, and remain committed to the responsibilities of Student Council.

The offices of President and Vice-President can only be held by 9th graders. Candidates for President need to have served on Student Council for a minimum of one year. An exception to that rule would be if the candidate was new to the district this year.The other three offices of Recording Secretary, Treasurer and Director of Public Relations could be held by a 7th, 8th or 9th grader.

Students interested in a Student Council Officer or Representative position may visit the Student Council webpage (Counseling tab on the Holmes Junior High site) to submit an application or follow the link on Schoology. Applications must be completed by September 7th. The webpage provides additional information on officer responsibilities and campaign rules and expectations.
