Please take 10 minutes to complete our annual parent survey. Your opinions are of the utmost importance to us. We have implemented changes to our facilities and programs over the years based on your feedback. We are asking that you complete the survey by April 30, 2021. When you finish the survey, please contact your child/ren's homeroom teacher for your Husky to receive a dress down coupon redeemable this school year. Thank you so much! Power of the Pack!

Holly Academy will be offering summer school this year. To receive funding we must offer eight weeks of math and reading. We will offer two, half day, three-week sessions and one two-week session at no cost to you. You can opt your Husky into any or all of the sessions. Please fill out the Google Form below if you are interested. Dare to be remarkable!
This week, our fifth grade Huskies began M-Step testing. They tested in the areas of math and science. In the coming weeks, all third through eighth graders will take the M-Step. In May, all of our Huskies will also take the NWEA assessment. To ensure your students are prepared for testing, they should:
Get a good night’s sleep.
Have a healthy breakfast.
Bring a healthy snack.
Remind them to believe in themselves.
Dare to be remarkable, Huskies!

Parents should plan on picking up their student no later than 2:45 pm at the middle school computer lab door. Mrs. Potteiger will be emailing all fifth and eighth grade HVA students and parents with the upcoming testing schedule for M-Step. Students in grades 3, 4, 6, and 7 will not take the M-Step test until May. All NWEA testing will be done remotely for our HVA students.
