Honor Roll

Holmes sponsors three honor rolls for students who achieve well in the classroom.  Each grade period:

students with a 3.75 grade point average (A) are placed on our High Honor Roll

students with a 3.5 grade point average (B+/A-) are placed on our Honor Roll

students with a 3.0 grade average  (B) are placed on our Merit Roll


Honors Recognition and Reception

Students who have achieved a 3.5 – 3.749 grade average for their entire “career” at Holmes are cited as honor students. Students who have earned a 3.75 -4.0 grade average are considered high honor students. These students are recognized at our Honors Reception. Grade averages are based on the first eight trimesters of middle school. All areas of assessment will be computed.


Students who move into our district prior to the third marking period of their eighth grade year are eligible to speak at the promotional exercises; students who move in after the beginning of the third trimester are not eligible. Grades of move-in students will be translated to correlate with the Holmes Middle School grading system to the maximum degree possible.
