Holly Academy is pleased to be offering summer school again this year. We will be replicating the program we ran last year, which included one two-week session, and two three-week sessions. The summer school hours are 8:00am-12:00pm. There is no cost to our families. You can opt your Husky into any or all sessions. This program is not intended to accelerate students. The intent is to fill gaps in learning and assist students with retaining information over the summer. Please fill out the Google Form below if you are interested. The deadline for registration is Friday, April 15th. Dare to be remarkable!

Today marks the end of the third marking period. Fourth marking period is a busy one with standardized testing and our end of the year events. It is more important than ever to be checking with your Husky daily regarding work completion. We want everyone to finish the year strong! Dare to be remarkable!


The staff and Board of Directors wish you a peaceful and relaxing spring break. If you are traveling, please be safe. Enjoy the time with your Husky!

Stakeholder Q & A Sessions with Finalists

At the Board of Directors' meeting last evening the Board chose the three finalists for the Director position. One finalist will be on campus each evening, April 4th, 5th, and 6th. At 5:00pm on those dates, parents are encouraged to come and meet the candidates. The session will be an informal hour long question and answer period. At 7:00pm on those evenings, the candidates will participate in a second round interview that the public may attend. Both the Q & A sessions and the interviews will take place in the media center. Your feedback will be collected in written form.


Monday, the 4th: Jason Gillespie
Tuesday, the 5th: Victoria Wandmacher
Wednesday, the 6th: Salwa Kinsey


This is a great opportunity to meet the finalists! Power of the Pack!

Outdoor Learning

With the nice weather, 5th grade students walked the school grounds to see all the different matters we have in our environment. Looked like a great time!

Spring Testing

Teachers and students are working hard in their preparations for spring testing. Specific information will be provided after spring break.


It has been a busy month in March! Our upcoming spring break is well deserved! I wish all of our Husky families a restful and relaxing one!
