Mrs. Rachel Holmes

I studied Music at Meredith College with a concentration in voice and secondary focus in piano. I hold certifications in K-12 Music and K-6 General Curriculum. In addition to teaching music at RDE, I maintain a personal performance schedule including with the North Carolina Master Chorale and the Tar River Orchestra and Chorus. I am married to a Marine and have four boys who all keep me laughing and going crazy.

    We wanted to update all of our morning carpool families, as well as our morning walkers. All students will now enter at the main entrance in the very front of the school rather than at the glass hallways. At this time we do not have staff available to monitor the glass hallway entrances, and safety is our first priority. This will begin for all tomorrow, October 5th.

    Progress reports went home on Friday. Due to a variety of beginning of the year assessments and review, there were not as many grades listed on these progress reports; you will see more on the report cards.
