New Enrollment Referral
As a way to say thank you to our current families, we are offering parents an incentive for referring new families to Holly Academy. For every child you bring into HA that is accounted for in our October count, you will receive $100. For example, if you refer a family with 3 kids that would be $300!! Go spread the word to all your family and friends about how remarkable HA is!
It is hard to believe there are only 17 days left of school. Wow, this year has flown by. Thank you to the Staff at Holly Academy for all your hard work and dedication. I also want to send out a thank you to all the parents and students for being so welcoming this year. It has been a great year and many activities are still occurring before the end of the school year.
The M-step testing window ends May 19th. We are finishing up a few students who were absent but the testing is almost completed.
Thank you, teachers, and a special thank you to Leslie Nabozny and Pam Bunka for working as proctors for all the testing.
NWEA testing window ends May 26th. Lots of grade levels are done, but a few are scheduled for next week.
Parents, please try to make sure your son/daughter is here for testing and remind them of the importance of the test.
Special Dress Down Day
There will be a special dress-down day on Monday, May 15th for all Holly Academy students. This dress-down day is an additional day and was not part of the yearly payment. It is to benefit the 8th grade end-of-the-year events including the formal dance and graduation ceremony, which are very special events. The majority of our 8th graders have been here since kindergarten, and the events at the end of the year are meant to celebrate their successes. After Covid, we were unable to sustain a reasonable amount of money in the 8th-grade fund, which resulted in a shortage this year.
Students that would like to participate must pay $1.00, in order to dress-down.
There are so many special things our 8th graders get to do such as Washington D.C., formal awards and graduation ceremony, 8th-grade slideshow, 8th-grade formal dance at a local venue, Fensington Fun Day (on campus), Field Day, Mural and Rock Painting, the burial of uniforms, and 8th grade clap out. Holly Academy is unique in planning all these activities for our 8th graders. Please help us continue our traditions for this year’s class of 2023.
Please remember even students who pre-paid will still have to pay for the dress down on Monday, May 15. Many thanks for your continued support.
