Holcomb Bridge Hustle 5K Teams With Kyle Pease Foundation

Holcomb Bridge Middle School and the second-annual Holcomb Bridge Hustle 5K are excited to announce a partnership with the Kyle Pease Foundation (KPF), a non-profit organization which provides sports-participation opportunities for persons with disabilities.

Kyle Pease FoundationTo kick off this partnership, HBMS will be hosting an in-school assembly on Oct. 19 with Kyle Pease, his brothers and KPF supporters to promote this year’s race, discuss the organization’s goals and educate all HBMS students about inclusion of all athletes as part of the group’s mission.

Through this partnership, the school, its PTA and race organizers, will be promoting KPF’s mission to provide assistance for persons with disabilities and to help them meet their individual needs through sports. Kyle Pease, as well as students who are being assisted by KPF, and numerous KPF supporters and volunteers will participate in this year’s race. We are excited to be able to help all students experience the thrill of reaching the starting line and the exhilaration of crossing the finish line.

Holcomb Bridge Middle Opens Time Capsule From 1992

Alumnae, Students and Staff Celebrate Commitment to Peace and Individual Responsibility

Time Capsule ‘Powaqqatsi’A joyful group of former students from the 1992 8th grade class gathered on October 10, 2012 with teachers, administrators, parents and current students in the Media Center of Holcomb Bridge Middle School to witness the rare opening of a 20-year old time capsule named ‘Powaqqatsi.’ Led by teacher Marjory Segal, the capsule was sealed on May 28, 1992 containing artifacts selected to represent the times and demonstrate the students’ passionate commitment to creating a world where humans could coexist peacefully. 15 of the 90 students that assembled the time capsule returned today, 20 years later, traveling from as far as Colorado and Kentucky to reunite in a show of unity and support of their school and beliefs.

Tuesday, October 9
“Team Up Against Drugs” – Students are asked to wear their favorite sports team apparel.

Wednesday, October 10
“Knock The Socks off Drugs” – Students may wear red, crazy or mismatched socks. Students are also encouraged to bring a new pair of socks to be donated to North Fulton Community Charities. Collection boxes will be located at carpool (in the morning), the cafeteria, and the front office.
