Holly Academy News & Views
October 8, 2021
Holly Academy is a wonderful environment in which to work and grow. As I'm sure you have heard, there is a national teacher shortage and along with that a definite shortage of substitute teachers. HA is so lucky to have incredible subs that are flexible and responsive to our needs. A HUGE "Husky Thank You" to: Mrs. Campbell, Mrs. Knight, Mrs. Grant, Mrs. Nabozny, Mrs. Bunka, Mrs. Thompson, Mrs. Lawrence, Mrs. Harris, and Mr. Mison, for being outstanding substitute teachers! We couldn't offer our rigorous program without you! It's great to be a Husky!
The RTI model used at Holly Academy is driven by data collected through standardized test scores, classroom performance, and teacher observations. Targeted students receive intervention services with increasing and decreasing levels of intensity, based on their individual needs. For example, a student will receive Tier 2 services before receiving Tier 3 services. Conversely, a student who is released from Tier 3 services will receive Tier 2 services before dropping back to Tier 1.
TIER 1: Teachers provide standards based, differentiated instruction for ALL students in the classroom.
TIER 2: An interventionist provides support within the classroom for targeted students to participate in learning that is in addition to Tier 1. Progress monitoring occurs with greater frequency.
TIER 3: A certified teacher/interventionist provides services outside of the classroom to targeted students so they are participating in learning that is in addition to Tier 1 and Tier 2. A learning plan is formulated specifically to the student’s needs, including individualized assessments. Attendance is mandatory.
TIER 4: Targeted students participate in learning that includes special education certification, specialized programs, and modified content or instructional delivery.
Mrs. Craven (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mrs. Price (email@example.com) are happy to answer any questions about our Response to Intervention RTI/MTSS (Multi-Tiered System of Supports) program.
Fall on the Farm
Fall on the Farm (fall themed Field Day) will be Friday, October 15th. Most of the events are outside. Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather (layers). For any younger children that cannot tie their shoes, please make sure they have shoes that they can put on by themselves.
Class snacks will be cider and a Kellogg's Rice Krispie treat. Kroger brand powdered donuts will be used for the donut eating contest. If your child has an allergy to any of these items, please send in an alternate snack for your child. For the safety of those children with allergies, the PTO will not be providing any alternatives for these items.
