Federal Advocacy

  • As a District, we have been communicating with our federal representatives to encourage their support in providing financial assistance to our schools in the federal stimulus package that is currently being negotiated in Congress.  We are asking members of the Holland Patent Learning Community for your support in contacting our federal representatives in Congress to provide additional funding for P-12 education.  The contact information for our federal representatives is listed below, as well as a sample correspondence. 

    Senator Chuck Schumer:

    Senator Kirsten Gillibrand:

    Representative Anthony Brindisi-NY-22


    I am writing to you during this unprecedented health and economic crisis to encourage you to support the upcoming supplemental relief package, which will provide additional funding to states for K-12 Public Education because of the COVID-19 pandemic.  Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis, the Holland Patent Central School District has remained dedicated to meeting the needs of our students and community through effectively transitioning to remote learning, preparing and delivering meals and directing essential workers to daycare centers.

    In addition to meeting the needs of our students, staff, families and community, we are also extremely concerned about the future impact further reductions in state aid will have on our District.  Any cuts in funding would potentially lead to a reduction in staff and programs.  Your advocacy in supporting the additional funding during this crisis is vital now more than ever.   

    We truly appreciate your consideration for this request and your leadership and commitment to guiding our state and community through this crisis.

Final Grading Information for Parents

Monster Art Project!

  • Monster Art Project

    Mrs. Heiser's third grade students started a very special project this year in their art class with Mr. Verri. This project started with the book, Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak.

    The students then created their own "Wild Things. The very original drawings were then shared with artists of all ages throughout the district.
    Mrs. Grower's High school students used the third grade drawings as reference to create digital drawings of the same monsters. Mrs. Spine's high school students and Mrs. Laubscher's middle schoolers were in the process of creating sculptures of the monsters from a ton of different materials. 
    The digital drawings were completed before school was closed and the sculptures were partially finished. Hopefully, Next year we can see this project all the way through with another group of third graders, middle schoolers and high schoolers.
    As for now, check out some of the fantastic results of this collaborative project!

  • Though we’re but a country high school,
    Our name unknown to fame
    To our colors we are loyal,
    Our heritage we claim;

    We defend the gold and purple,
    Wherever we may be,
    Our hearts forever faithful
    To the old school in H.P.


    The purple hue is royal,
    The gold is pure and fine,
    And both are king’s apparel
    Ordained by word divine,

    Therefore, royal are our colors,
    To them we true must be,
    To show we love and honor
    The old school in H.P.
