Happy last day of the 20/21 school year! We did it! Now that the school year is behind us I am filled with pride for what our staff accomplished. We are the only public school in the area that offered five day per week in-person teaching and learning. While the year was extremely stressful, each staff member played their part in the tremendous feat we accomplished.

Along with your support we taught 620 students virtually, blended, and face-to-face. We always thank you for trusting HA; however, I never thought I would be thanking you for trusting us in a global pandemic! I am very hopeful that school will be back to normal next year. As of today, I don't know if masks will be required, but I will do my best to ensure that our "normal" programs are back in place for the 21/22 school year. Have a wonderful and remarkable summer! Power of the Pack!

Summer School

If you registered your Husky for the first session of summer school (June 14-July 2) you should have received a letter in the mail outlining the guidelines and protocol. If you did not, please contact the office. Closer to sessions two and three we will send correspondence in the US mail. It's great to be a Husky!

Happy last day of the 20/21 school year! What a year! I am so thankful for each and every one of you, students, parents, and staff. The work we have done together has been nothing short of amazing. I have told the teachers frequently during the past 15 months that they have simply taken my breath away! At this time, I would also like to express those same sentiments to our students and families! Thank you for a fantastic, albeit challenging, year! Enjoy a well-deserved summer break!

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 is 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 on June 29th at 9:00 am. A link to the Zoom meeting will be sent to those who have emailed Mrs. Potteiger.

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.
