Neighborhood welcome event at Zan Wesley Holmes, Jr. Middle School

Students, principal, and central administrators stand in front of the Zan Wesley Holmes, Jr. Wall of Quotes.

This evening was a Terrific Thursday for students, parents, and community of the Zan Wesley Holmes, Jr. Middle School.  Hundreds came to participate in the  "Neighborhood Fellowship" and to meet teachers and staff at their new school. 

Everyone gathered in the auditorium for an enthusiastic introduction of " here's where we are," "here's where we're going," and "here's how we'll get there."   The brief orientation applied to pathways to classrooms and resources throughout the facility as well as to physical, social, civic and academic journeys each student will have opportunities to take.

Then energetic guides conducted school tours -- a highlight of the evening -- as guests walked corridors with walls of motivational quotes and visited educational resources designed to inspire.

Big Thanks to neighborhood association leaders and nearby business owners for attending, giving and committing support.

Much appreciation to teachers, staff and administrators for taking the last hours of your summer break to help get the school ready to  welcome the community this evening.

Thanks to Principal Barbara Moham for leadership in planning this neighborhood event.

It was an exemplary "Neighborhood Fellowship" at Zan Wesley Holmes, Jr. Middle School.
