    National Nurses Week begins each year on May 6th and ends on May 12th, Florence Nightingale's birthday. These permanent dates enhance planning and position National Nurses Week as an established recognition event. As of 1998, May 8 was designated as National Student Nurses Day, to be celebrated annually. And as of 2003, National School Nurse Day is celebrated on the Wednesday within National Nurses Week (May 6-12) each year.

    The nursing profession has been supported and promoted by the American Nurses Association (ANA) since 1896. Each of ANA's state and territorial nurses associations promotes the nursing profession at the state and regional levels. Each conducts celebrations on these dates to recognize the contributions that nurses and nursing make to the community.

    The ANA supports and encourages National Nurses Week recognition programs through the state and district nurses associations, other specialty nursing organizations, educational facilities, and independent health care companies and institutions.

AFRL Virtual Challenge Competition

    Math Challenge
    Holland Patent Students Glen Gaige and James Gillett were coached by our middle school math teacher Mr. Richard Zacek at the 2021 AFRL Virtual Challenge Competition at Griffiss Institute in Rome.  The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) at Rome, NY, hosts a Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) Challenge every year during spring break. The challenge is developed and led by scientists and engineers at AFRL. Each Challenge Team consists of two students and a teacher. Schools from the surrounding community participate in the Challenge. This year's STEM Challenge consisted of three parts. The first part was to conduct research into the domain of the challenge problem - Reinforcement Learning, Wargaming, Robotics, Game Theory and Decision Theory. The second was the use of a model to derive an optimal, generalized solution to a particular scenario. The third part was to provide a presentation of their work to several judges.
    The teams had one week to complete the challenge.   

    A big thank you to Mr. Zacek for taking on the coaching role and to both students for giving up your spring break to improve your education!
