National School Board Recognition Month
January is National School Board Recognition Month. This is the time to recognize and celebrate the hard work of our volunteer Board of Directors. We are so appreciative of our Board as they have helped us navigate through the unprecedented past year. The Board has made many crucial decisions in this COVID environment, and throughout, has been steadfast in putting our Huskies first. Prioritizing face-to-face instruction, while ensuring the safety of students and staff has been at the forefront of all decisions. We applaud the Board for donating countless hours to governing Holly Academy, which in no small measure adds to our success. THANK YOU to our outstanding Board:
David Cruickshank, President
Joan Ehrhardt, Vice President
Stephen Jenkins, Treasurer
Dylan Adams, Secretary
Diane Wujciak, Director
Doreen DeBenedictus, Director
Amy Hillman, Director
Annual Education Report
It is hard to believe that we are halfway through this school year already! I often tell teachers at this point in the year, that we will blink our eyes and it will be June. For some reason, the second half of the school year always goes by so quickly.
As we move into the second semester and a return to face-to-face learning, I want to share a few reminders to our families. Our expectation for teachers is to respond to emails during the school week within 24 hours. Whether your student is in-person, blended, or virtual, please remember that teachers are not always immediately available and will get back to you at their earliest convenience. We appreciate your patience.
Additionally, please remember to check Skyward and your student’s grade level Google Calendar weekly to ensure they are staying on track with assignments and their grades.
We could not get through this school year without the support of our entire Husky Pack! Thank you, families! Power of the Pack!

In pre-covid times we were attempting to create an annual mother/son event. This typically has been a bowling event, as it is an enjoyable pastime for moms and boys. As bowling alleys are open in Michigan, it would be wonderful to hold a mother/son bowling outing this year. The PTO Board is looking for a parent or two to plan this event. Please contact the PTO at PTO.firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in chairing this event. It's great to be a Husky!
Elections for the PTO Board are held at the April meeting. There will be some turnover of our current Board for the 21/22 school year. Typically, we like prospective candidates to have attended three PTO meetings prior to being nominated for a Board seat. Should you be interested and not meet this requirement, please follow-through by emailing PTO.email@example.com, we do not want to turn away any candidates that have a passion to serve! Power of the Pack!
