Superintendent's Welcome

Dear Families of Holly Area Schools,  

It is with great excitement that I welcome you back for the 2023 - 2024 school year! I hope you were able to enjoy time this past summer with friends and family.

As the proud Superintendent of Holly Area Schools, I am honored to be part of a Broncho community that is committed to providing our students with a world-class education that prepares them for future success and careers.  We truly appreciate the partnerships with our families and community to provide a positive, nurturing learning environment that helps all Bronchos achieve and succeed.

Last school year was full of several phenomenal achievements.  The momentum continues and we are driven to move the needle even further this school year.  Districtwide, we continue to make many positive strides in safety and security, infrastructure and technology, and teaching and learning.  This Fall we look forward to celebrating with a groundbreaking ceremony signaling the start of construction of the new Holly Middle School and the new Construction Trades Center!  In addition, we will soon announce the completion of the new district Tennis Courts.  More updates on all of our exciting projects will be shared throughout the year.

Following the start of the new school year, I look forward to introducing a landmark strategic plan initiative, Holly Area Schools 2030.  The plan is the culmination of extensive collaboration and underscores our commitment to growth, innovation, and excellence.  More to come on this exciting vision for the future.

The new school year will also welcome new staff to our Broncho family and hallways.  We hope all our families will have the opportunity to meet these outstanding educators in the weeks ahead.

I would like to take a moment to thank all of the Broncho staff working this summer to prepare our buildings for the arrival of our teachers and students. Everyone from maintenance, custodial, technology, office staff and building administration have been laser-focused and committed to preparing for the start of the new school year.

There has truly never been a better time to be a Broncho, and I can’t wait to see the smiling faces of our Bronchos in our hallways on Monday, Aug. 28!  Together, we are committed to a culture of kindness, compassion, and respect in our schools. 

Thank you for continuing to make Holly Area Schools a great place to learn and achieve!

 #BronchoPride and #BronchosUnited!
