• Just a note that last week’s letter did not include the 2 pages as mentioned in the letter.  The two pages were the medical authorization page, which any student who may need any medications at all, including acetaminophen or ibuprofen, will need to have filled out by a doctor’s office.  We will be sending that authorization home with the students, or you can find it on our school 8th grade camping trip website.  The other form was the supplies list, which we will also send home with the students next week, or you can also find that on our website.  We apologize for any confusion we may have created.

    The 2019 8th Grade Camping Trip will be 

    May 30, May 31, and June 1

    The Stillwater Reservoir

    The 8th Grade Camping Trip is our way to say farewell and good luck to our exiting 8th graders. The participants who are in The Holland Patent Middle School 8th Grade and select faculty and high school senior volunteers/counselors--pile into buses and drive up to Beaver Camp in Lowville, NY, for three days of traditional and not-so-traditional camping activities. We canoe, swim, do high and low ropes courses, and hike; but we also get to see the students in a non-traditional teacher-student role (outside of school). We cherish the trip just as much as the students who will remember it for years.
