Students Share Their Christmas Spirit
Students in Dr. Hast's 8th grade class share their Christmas spirit by writing over 120 Christmas cards, which were distributed to three veteran organizations and five nursing homes in the area. All recipients were very appreciative.
Students Receive Research Awards
Emily P and Morgan K. each received an award from their librarian for employing excellent research skills and effort on a research project in Mr. Eberley's classroom. Students were to learn about an organism, applying science concepts and terminology from Science class to what they learned about their organism by way of the research process, and the project culminated in a presentation to their peers. Taking their job to educate their classmates seriously, they searched the web for the correct pronunciation of the Latin words used to describe the classification of their organisms. "Taking this extra effort and understanding the resources available to them on the web deserves recognition," says Mrs. Horwat. Emily and Morgan are shining examples of researchers in action, using all that is available to them!

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.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at 315-865-8152.
