This "COVID year" has posed so many issues for us as a school community. The majority of these issues could not be viewed as positive; however, we have had a lot of positive feedback that virtual parent/teacher conferences have been a hit! Teachers and parents alike have commented that this approach has allowed for privacy, no waiting, and does not require child care. We will be asking you to complete the annual parent survey soon. There will be a question included regarding virtual parent/teacher conferences. If the majority of parents answer that they prefer this mode, this is something we most probably will continue in the future. Power of the Pack!

Thank you!

We are extending a huge THANK YOU to the PTO, and especially Angie Cryderman, for providing staff with dinner on p/t conference day! We are so grateful to the PTO for always thinking of us!

It's great to be a Husky!

Open Enrollment

Holly Academy's annual open enrollment period extends from the day we return from winter break through March 12th. If you have a Y5 or kindergarten sibling you must fill out an application form. This is sometimes confusing to families. All brand new students must have application and registration forms filled out prior to acceptance.

Healthy Huskies

We have been very pleased that since our return to school on January 19th, we have had very few COVID related issues. To ensure that we can continue in this manner it is essential that we are following protocol for mask wearing. Please wear masks at all times if you are in the buildings, this applies to the vestibule as you pick up and drop off student work. Thank you for making the power of our pack so remarkable!
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.

PTO Elections

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.hollyacademy@gmail.com, we do not want to turn away any candidates that have a passion to serve! Power of the Pack!
