Holly Academy staff and Board of Directors wish you a Happy Thanksgiving. Have a peaceful and lovely day with your Huskies and a restful mini-break! It's great to be a Husky!
As the winter weather is now with us please make sure that your child brings appropriate clothing to go outside: boots, winter coats, snow pants, gloves, and hats.

Next week is Thanksgiving! Be sure to take some time to enjoy this fall weather.


This time of year is very hard for students to stay focused and they need encouragement to keep up with their grades. Let them know we are here to help and remind them to ask for help if it is required. Several parents have asked for a reminder about when and who is invited to our breakfast club at the middle school. The breakfast starts at 7:30am and runs to 7:55am. We usually have between 75-100 people in attendance. Here are the details:


November 21st: 3rd grade parents are volunteering to run the breakfast and all 3rd grade students, and their parents are welcome.


November 28th: 2nd grade parents are volunteering to run the breakfast and all 2nd grade students, and their parents are welcome.


December 5th: 1st grade parents are volunteering to run the breakfast and all 1st grade students, and their parents are welcome.


December 12th: K and Y5 parents are volunteering to run the breakfast and all K and Y5 students, and their parents are welcome.

Payment for breakfast and lunch

Since My School Account is a point-of-sale system and we require all students to preorder, the cost of the meals will be listed as $0.00 (with the exception of a la carte items). Balances will be updated in My School Account as meals are entered after the serve date.

If you have sufficient funds in your child’s My School Account, please go to www.myschoolaccount.com and place your order.


When you open My School account and your balance shows $10.00, that means you have that amount in your account available to spend. If your account shows ($10.00) that means that your account is negative by that amount and must be paid prior to checking out.

If you do not have sufficient funds in your My School Account you will need to add funds via RevTrak. Please use this link to add funds. RevTrak - Food Service


If you add items to your My School Account to determine the amount due for checkout, then add funds in your RevTrak account, you will need to log out and then log in again for the funds to show in your My School Account.


If you have any questions regarding Food Service for the 2022-23 school year, please contact Angie Cryderman at crydermana@hollyacademy.org or 248-634-5554 x154.
