Principal's Welcome Letter

  • Greetings A.L. Holmes Family,

    Welcome back to another great year of learning.  It is with great pride that I serve as Principal of A. L. Holmes Academy of Blended Learning this year.  The last two years have been unique and challenging.  We applaud our staff, families and especially students for demonstrating resilience, tenacity, and persevering.

    This year, we look forward to an amazing 2022-2023 school year filled with inquiries, great possibilities, and endless accomplishments.  Our highly qualified, dedicated staff work tirelessly to ensure that every child feels connected, affirmed, and challenged to reach infinite altitudes of education and innovation.

    Our commitment to engaging students in a high-quality, standards-aligned curriculum, robust small group instruction, impactful social/emotional support, and providing opportunities of lifting students' voices remains an integral part of A.L. Holmes.

    To continue this rich academic legacy, we encourage you to make sure your child begins school on the First Day of School, Monday, August 29, 2022, and every day thereafter.  Thank you for your support.  Once again, welcome!
