Notice to Parents/Guardians
Please double check your selections in the Skyward Online Verification (particularly in #3 Student Data Options - 2022-2023 Directory Information and Opt-Out section). This information was completed in August before registration, but it has come to our attention that many students are unable to have their picture in the yearbook, newsletters (Broncho Stampede), on school websites, etc because the directions may have been confusing and the wrong selections were chosen. Some families may not be receiving Skylert calls due to this as well. Please re-read and verify your selections. Also review if you would like the student's info released to military recruiters and higher education recruiters. **Parents/guardians of new students and foreign exchange students, you will probably need to complete the whole Skyward Online Verification if you did not do so during your student's enrollment**. THANK YOU!
How to check your selections:
- Login to Family Access from hask12.org
- Open Family Access - Select 'Student Online Verification'
- Select 'Go back and review'
- Select '#3 Student Data Options - 2022-2023 Directory Info and Opt-Out'. Review and change your responses if necessary.
Here are some descriptions to help clarify the directory info and opt-out section.

Students attended sessions, toured the campus, and heard from the department of education and human services. Michelle Richard, Senior Education Advisor to Governor Whitmer, also spoke to the students about the recent updates and grants available for future teachers! Kylee Daughtery and Madyson Broder competed in the Read Aloud Competition- and Kylee Daughtery took first place!! Holly High School also won the Social Media challenge!
Attention 10th & 11th grade students!
Sophomore and Junior Families can schedule a Visitor Session with OSTC if they missed the group tour or if they wanted to get a more detailed look at a program they were interested in.
These are the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners by hour (1st and 2nd) for first annual Español 2 - Ofrenda Challenge. Teams were tasked with creating an ofrenda to honor people (real or fictional, or pets!) that had a positive, lasting effect on their lives. They were designed with the typical elements of an ofrenda for Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). Students had just completed reading a novel called "Tumba" which was centered around this important holiday.
CPR for HHS
Lieutenant Dan Miller, the EMS Coordinator for North Oakland County Fire Authority, came to speak with our Health Education students, taught by Mrs. Vagts and Mrs. Voegel. Lieutenant Miller taught the life saving techniques of Adult, Child, and Infant CPR, how to properly use an AED, and other great first aid and medical emergency information. To hear from Lieutenant Miller, who has vast experience as a Paramedic, Firefighter, Police Officer, and Administrator, was a great opportunity for our students. We are very appreciative that he was able to take the time to teach and inspire our Bronchos.

Holly FCCLA Socks for Change!
Consider these facts:
- Every 20 seconds a child dies from lack of access to clean water.
- Women and children in many communities spend up to 60 percent of each day walking to collect water.
- 4,500 children die each day due to unsafe water and a lack of basic sanitation.
- Most of us don’t even think about it. We use 80 – 100 gallons of water every day. It’s just a part of life.
- But for millions of children throughout the developing world, the possibility of drinking clean water is just a dream.
We started the sock campaign to provide clean drinking water for communities in Rwanda so children and their families can get the clean water they need to live healthy lives. Please buy a pack or two — even one pack of socks will be a huge help. Together we can greatly improve their lives… one step at a time. These socks are silly, colorful, and fun- only $5 per pair- or $12 for a 3 pack! For every pack sold, we will receive a pair of socks to donate to people in need within our community! Thank you!
*Socks can be purchased in Mrs. Barth’s Classroom- A201 or go to the website below. https://go.wehelptwo.com/campaign/?campaignid=18046
