Empty Bowls 2017
On April 24, 2017, artists from across the district came together to host our second annual 'Empty Bowls' during the K-12 District Art Show. That evening, over 400 bowls were sold to raise $3,075.00 for Blessings in a Backpack-Holly. This project was made possible thanks to a generous grant awarded to our district by Michigan Youth Arts and the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs. HAS thanks these organizations for supporting the arts in our Holly community.

Holly Area Schools Awarded AdvancED Systems Accreditation
During the last full week of February, Holly Area Schools was visited by a team of educators from Michigan and other parts of the country as part of an external review process.
