It was a pleasure to see so many parents attend our Fueling Parent Excellence evening on Monday. Our mission is to achieve individual academic success for all students through a positive family/school/community partnership. The FPE event is just one of the ways that Holly Academy supports this mission. If you have any follow up questions regarding the information presented at the event, please don't hesitate to ask. My email address is: kildeej@hollyacademy.org. No question is too trivial! It's great to be a Husky!

Keeping Our Huskies Safe!

Welcome back to our wonderful crosswalk helpers!

John Coleman has joined the tremendous trio. John is replacing Teri Webner. Teri was one of our crosswalk "orginals", and she did a fantastic job! We will miss her. Please welcome John when you see him.

Returning are Barb Bunker and Jerry Elliott. Please say “hi” when you see them. For a conversation starter, ask Barb about her grandchildren and ask Jerry how the Yankees are doing.

Our thanks to all three for being with us this year and for helping to keep everyone safe!
Power of the Pack!
