Welcome Message


Welcome to third grade at St Francis de Sales School Catholic School! My name is Mrs. Holmes I am looking forward to a “purr-fect” school year with all of my  “Coolcats”!


I am new to SFdSCS and am  settling in very nicely! I’m very happy to be a new member of The St. Francis de Sales Family! I have been a proud Catholic School Teacher for 27 years! I just moved to the Eastern Shore with my family. I’m from Southern New Jersey and taught for the Diocese of Trenton. I myself, am a product of Catholic Education. I am elementary certified in New Jersey and Maryland and have taught every grade between kindergarten and eighth grade. I believe in using a variety of teaching strategies to meet the individual needs of my students. I also feel  that it is important for the parents and I to work together for the success of our students. 


Teaching is very dear to me. I love the adventure each new year brings and still look forward to every September and the many fun memories to come. My  favorite part of working at a catholic school is that I can practice my faith in every facet of my life.


Please be on the lookout for weekly updates and announcements. If you have any questions or concerns please contact me at


May God’s light continue to shine brightly on us all this blessed school year!
