Our new family "Meet & Greet" for prospective Y5, K, and 1st grade students is Monday, February 27th from 6:30-7:30pm. Our guests can come and meet the staff and discover what makes HA remarkable. It's great to be a Husky!
Welcome to the new semester. The semester ends today January 13th. Which means we are halfway through the year. I want to take a second to say thank you to all the people who have welcomed me as part of the family at Holly Academy. I look forward to continuing my dedication to HA's parents, students, and staff. Here are a couple of upcoming things to take note of:
Fun Friday Lunch on January 20th will be for the 5th graders. This is new to the 5th grade. The 5th-grade students will get the opportunity to eat together in the main gym and then when they are finished they will be allowed to have recess together.
Monday morning breakfast club will be changed to every other week. So we will not have a breakfast club on January 16th. We will resume on January 23rd with the 7rh grade parents volunteering to help.
Please see the link below for more information and a chance to sign up to volunteer:
Transition to High School Night will be on January 24th at 6pm in the auditorium. All 8th graders and parents should attend. Eighth graders who attend will receive a dress-down coupon. The homeroom with the most students present will also receive a pizza party. Snacks will be provided. If you have an 8th grader and want to know what local high schools have to offer this is your night.
Transition to Holly Academy Middle School is scheduled for February 8th at 6pm. This is for all 5th-grade students and parents. This will take place in the auditorium. It will consist of a slideshow with what HA has to offer. The students will participate in a middle school tour and have a Q&A. Fifth-grade students attending will receive a dress-down coupon.
Holly Academy will be hosting its annual spelling bee for 3rd through 8th grade on February 9th during the school day. Students can come to the office starting January 17th to pick up the words. Hope to see lots of students participate.
Have a great weekend!
