In an educator's career, there are events and moments that touch your heart and leave a lasting impression. In my 30 year career, our Veteran's Day event ranks right up at the top of the list! It was our honor and privilege to pay tribute to the veterans that joined us for the celebration. A huge "THANK YOU" to Mrs. Idoni and Ms. Burns for planning and organizing the event. Hopefully, they will make this a Holly Academy tradition! It is so great to be a Husky!

Thank You

A huge thank you to the Tersigni family for bringing military vehicles for everyone to see. Also, thanks to the Jones family who provided hot coffee for all the veterans.

After School Activities

We have several current after school activities. If you have a student participating in one of these activities, siblings are not allowed to stay after school. The office closes at 4:00pm and we do not expect coaches or teachers to care for siblings during practices, games, or Chess Club. We do have a latch key program, Kidz Klub, that is available after school. Should you need after school care, please contact Mrs. Melton. Thank you.

Parent/Teacher Conferences

At the end of every school year, we send out a parent survey. Last year, parents overwhelmingly supported the virtual parent/teacher format. We will be holding virtual parent/teacher conferences on Monday, November 22nd from 1:00-4:30pm and 5:30-8:00pm, and Tuesday, November 23rd from 1:00-4:30pm. Please use the following link to sign-up for a conference with the teachers of your choice: www.hollyacademy.org/ptc.

In the last two weeks, I have been able to observe the process of data drops and visit classrooms to see HA's curriculum 'live and in action.' During my visits, students were seen as focused and engaged, while learning in academically driven, yet creative, styles. The data drops were evidence of this, as growth was apparent in your student/s. Appropriate steps for further growth were determined, leaving us excited to continue to see the strides your student will be supported to make!

Husky Helps Pantry

Earlier this school year our Huskies donated items to help replenish our Husky Helps Pantry. We are excited to open the pantry to any families in need. We have been patiently waiting for the installation of a door buzzer to allow families to enter the school near the pantry. However, like most things these days, labor and material shortages have continued to be an issue.


If you are in need of any assistance, please reach out to Angie Cryderman at crydermana@hollyacademy.org to schedule a time for you to gather any items you need from the pantry. She will let you into the building near the Husky Helps pantry. If you are not comfortable entering the building, you can also email her a list of items you need, and she will gather these items and let you know when they are ready and you can do a curbside pick up. Please know that she will keep your identity confidential.


In addition to the food items in the picture, there are also cleaning supplies, toilet paper, paper towels, and other personal hygiene products.
