California Academy of Sciences Video Conference
A group of 8th graders recently attended a video conference with the California Academy of Sciences. This even, "Food Choices the Environment Will Love You For" coincided perfectly with their STEAM studies. They learned about how food choices affect plants and animals, ways to reduce the impact of food, and how to best utilize leftovers!
Thanks to Kelsey Zimmerman for taking photos so we can share them!

Black River Outdoor Education
On October 19th our 6th grade students were given the wonderful opportunity to go mountain biking with the Black River Outdoor Education Program. The students spent their day outdoors, learning how to mountain bike properly and safely, while navigating a variety of biking trails. It was a fun and enriching experience for all!

Important safety information for visitors:At Holland Patent Central Schools, the safety of our children is a top priority. In response to global events and parental concerns, we have joined many other districts in our area to take a proactive approach to safety. All main entrance doors are secured and equipped with a security camera. Admittance to the building will be permitted through a door bell/buzzer system.
The following procedures have been implemented:
• Upon your arrival to the main entrance, please ring the door bell.
• Visitors will be required to identify themselves and state their purpose for entering the building.
• Additional information may be required prior to entering the building.
• In the event that the system is disengaged during school hours, there will be an individual assigned to the main entrance.
• The building is closed at 6:00 PM unless prior arrangements have been made for community events, sporting events, or any other event.This system has been implemented to secure the building while maintaining a single point of entry in order to create an optimal learning environment. We appreciate your support as we continue to promote the safety of children.
