Hawk Highlights

April 22, 2022

Dear Friends and Families of the Hollys,

Today’s world is filled with many changes and challenges. The daily news highlights the effects of poverty, conflict and strife on local and national levels. These factors and conditions certainly reinforce the need for our community to work together to teach our students to be compassionate, curious and confident learners. Throughout this school year our students have had many opportunities to engage in learning activities and experiences that reinforce these integral skills. Our community has generously provided positive support and resources to help make these learning opportunities a reality. I am humbled and grateful to partner with the wonderful humans of the Hollys. Thank you for your continuous support and engagement.

Planning is already underway for the 2022-23 school year. Each year we have the opportunity to tweak programs, schedules, procedures and practices to better meet the needs of our students and community members. We have a leadership team at the Hollys comprised of representatives from the various teams and departments in our school. We examine ideas for positive change for the new school year. We reached consensus on a myriad of topics using “what is best for our children” as our guiding principle. I will share a presentation highlighting plans for the 2022-23 school year at our next accountability meeting on Tuesday, April 26 at 5:00pm at Holly Ridge Primary. All are welcome! I will follow up with a written summary in our May newsletter. Be sure to check out our innovative plans for the upcoming school year.
