National Junior Honor Society Induction

  • National Junior Honor Society Induction

    On November 1, 2018, 43 outstanding 8th grade students were inducted into the Holland Patent Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society.  The National Junior Honor Society was founded in 1929 to recognize students who excel in the categories of scholarship, leadership, service, citizenship, and character.  In addition to recognizing students for their achievements, being a member of the organization also challenges students to develop themselves further through active involvement in service to the school and community.  Congratulations to all new members!​

7th Grade STEAM Shoe Design Challenge

  • After the 7th grade class attended the Manufacturing Day Fieldtrip to SUNY POLY on October 12th, 2018, students were given a manufacturing STEAM challenge where they had to design a shoe. Groups of 4-5 students determined a problem with a type of shoe, brainstormed and developed solutions thinking about materials they wanted in the shoe, created and sketched, redesigned and re-sketched a group prototype. Groups created a company name, company logo, cost of the shoes, determined strengths and weaknesses with their design, listed materials and features of their design and some groups even created an ad slogan. Groups shared their designs to the other groups and teachers.

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.
