The "New Family Meet and Greet" this past Monday was a huge success! Twenty-four new families attended and learned why Holly Academy is so remarkable! A huge thanks to all the staff that participated in the event. I am so grateful to have a wonderful staff who go above and beyond for our school. Power of the Pack!
Happy St. Patrick's day! The end of the marking period is quickly approaching and it is hard to believe we are entering the end of the school year. The 4th marking period is very busy and includes several spring testing assessments. Students will be taking NWEA, M-Step, PSAT, and WIDA testing. Please try to make sure your child is present at school during their testing dates. Please make sure your child gets a good night's sleep and eats a good breakfast on those days.
