Week Two!

September 11th is the National Day of Service and Remembrance. As a service to support our Husky community each grade level collected items for our Husky Helps Pantry. This pantry is located directly across from Mr. Dufresne's music room (the door closest to the outside exit). The pantry is open all day for those that need staples such as baby items, breakfast items, box dinners, personal care items, paper products, and cleaning supplies. Please feel free to shop in the pantry, as needed. Should you need assistance with other items (field trips, lunches, school supplies, etc...) please send an email through the website. All requests remain anonymous. It's good to be a Husky....power of the pack!

Volunteer/Visitor Parent Check-in

Volunteers/visitors in the school between the hours 8:05am-3:10pm must check in at our Raptor kiosk in the vestibule or in the office. If you have not registered for the Raptor system, please do so in the office. You will need your driver's license to register.

Did You Know?

  1. Holly Academy is a member of the Mid-Michigan Independent Athletic Association (MMIAA)?
  2. Huskies can play organized school sports earlier than in "traditional districts"? Our students can try out for girls' volleyball, boys' basketball, girls' basketball, cheerleading, and cross country in 5th grade. Our co-ed soccer begins in 6th grade.

A huge THANK YOU to our fall sports coaches: Mrs. Ahn (JV volleyball), Mr. Cryderman (Varsity volleyball), and Mr. Melero (soccer)! We truly appreciate your time and effort teaching our Huskies the game, and most importantly, how to display good sportsmanship! Power of the Pack!
