"We are very proud and thankful for the efforts our students and staff have made in supporting the Holmes Helping Homes basketball game," said Dr. Rob Bohanek, Holmes principal. "This is the third year staff has coordinated and raised money for Holmes families in need. We are particularly reminded in this season of thankfulness how important it is to give back to our community. The value and benefits of helping others is something we hope students strive to always have in their lives and in their hearts."

In a hard-fought battle, the staff came away with a 44-41 victory over the students. This year's game included a guest appearance by District 59 Superintendent Dr. Art Fessler, who helped bring home the victory for the Holmes staff team.
