Tomorrow (Saturday) is our eighth grade awards assembly, graduation, slideshow and dance. We are so pleased that we can offer these traditions to this year's graduating class. As challenging as this year has been, it has been a pleasure and a privilege to observe how these Huskies have matured over the past year. Through cohorting, block scheduling, limited electives, and having to pass classes outside (even in the dead of winter), our eighth grade class has stepped up to make it an awesome year. Our traditional eighth grade clap-out will begin at 10:45am on Wednesday. Congratulations to our graduating class; you will shine in high school! It's great to be a Husky!

HVA

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your patience with and perseverance through Husky Virtual Academy! Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, Holly Academy had never ventured into the world of virtual learning. I know it was rocky at times, but together we made it through! I so appreciate you, your HVA students, and the HVA teachers and interventionists! Enjoy every moment this summer!


If you filled out the parent survey and marked that your family was interested in a virtual option next year, please contact Mrs. Potteiger by Wednesday, June 9th at potteigj@hollyacademy.org. Mrs. Potteiger and Ms. Kildee will be hosting a virtual town hall meeting for those families interested later in June.

Healthy Huskies

We want the fourth term to be as safe and healthy as possible. To achieve this it is imperative that you are symptom-checking your Husky each morning. Should your student/s display any symptoms of sickness, please keep them home. Power of the Pack!
If you or your Husky receives a positive COVID result, please contact the school as soon as possible. On a weekend or in the evening, you can email any of the administrators. There are measures that we have to take immediately, including contacting the health department if a student tests positive. Thank you.

BRICK PAVER

Through HAEF, you can leave a lasting imprint for your child on Academy grounds. A personalized paver is a permanent way to document your child’s years at Holly Academy. Pavers ordered this school year are installed over the summer. Students returning to HA next fall will enjoy finding their pavers and seeing it as they grow throughout their years at the Academy.
