It's unbelievable how quickly we are approaching the end of the third marking period! The last day of this term is Thursday, March 25th. With three weeks to go, it is still possible for students to turn around less than stellar grades. Please access Skyward with your child and discuss his/her progress, to date. You can see all missing assignments and current grades. One of the leadership skills we instill in our Huskies is the ability to access grades and set goals to accomplish outstanding academic achievement. We provide your student with the tools for success and together, with their home and school families, they can truly “dare to be remarkable”!

Open Enrollment

Holly Academy's annual open enrollment period extends from the day we return from winter break through March 12th. If you have a Y5 or kindergarten sibling you must fill out an application form. This is sometimes confusing to families. All brand new students must have application and registration forms filled out prior to acceptance.

Holly High School information for our 8th graders!

Due to COVID restrictions, Holly High School will NOT be having an in-person freshman orientation. Instead, they will be posting a video on Tuesday, March 9th on their counseling website:


https://www.hask12.org/schools/holly-high-school/hhs-counseling/parent-night-information--presentations/


Families can enroll their students in Holly Area Schools now and select August as the start date. The district office will recognize that date as indicating a student who is planning to start at the beginning of next school year. In June, the Holly High Counseling Department will get a list from the district office of all students who were previously at the Academy and have enrolled in HAS. At that time, the counseling department will reach out to parents via email with their elective course options. If the counselors do not hear back from parents by June 17th, they will select elective options for students based on graduation requirements.

March is Reading Month

Congratulations!!

Our 5th grade Huskies have participated in a Michigan Earth Day poster contest. The contest is sponsored by several Michigan agencies including The Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE), the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR), and the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD).


Three winners were selected from the entire 5th grade and their posters have been sent to compete with other 5th graders from across our state. The winners are Libby Bonner, Sarah Corby, and Ian Damphouse. Congratulations! Good luck in the state competition!

If you or your Husky receives a positive COVID result, please contact the school as soon as possible. On a weekend or in the evening, you can email any of the administrators. There are measures that we have to take immediately, including contacting the health department if a student tests positive. Thank you.

BRICK PAVER

Through HAEF, you can leave a lasting imprint for your child on Academy grounds. A personalized paver is a permanent way to document your child’s years at Holly Academy. Pavers ordered this school year are installed over the summer. Students returning to HA next fall will enjoy finding their pavers and seeing it as they grow throughout their years at the Academy.
