District-wide fundraiser nets $1,300 for Hurricane Sandy relief W

hen Holley parent Darlene Pritchard was waiting for a recent flight, she began talking with another passenger who was on her way to deliver socks to a Third World country that were collected during a community sock drive. That got her thinking about how she could spearhead a fundraiser in Holley that would help the victims of Hurricane Sandy. The American Red Cross indicated that money would help the victims the most because there were so many different needs. So Pritchard teamed up with Elementary Teacher Lisa Hendry and the two decided to have a “Dress Up Week” with each student and staff member paying $1 for every day they participated. K-12 students and staff had fun dressing up for Hat Day, Sports Day, Pajama Day, Formal Day, and Crazy Color Day. In all, over $1,300 was raised! “This was an effort by the whole district – students and staff,” said Hendry. “I recruited a group of students to sort and count the money, and the kids really pitched in.”

Volunteers (l-r) Emma Downey, Jazmin Mounts, Tyra Shepherd, Andrew Drechsel, Karl Biedlingmaier, Coleman Garnier, and Casey Onisk with the giant check representing the donation made to the American Red Cross to help victims of Hurricane Sandy.

A message from the Superintendent


appy New Year! I hope that 2013 brings you and your family a year filled with good fortune and good health. It’s hard to believe that in a short while, half of this school year will be over. The second semester enables us to concentrate on all of the end-of-year assessments while planning for the next school year. With respect to the state assessments, we ask that you join us in emphasizing to your child the importance of performing well. That means getting plenty of rest, eating right, and studying hard. Doing these three things will translate to success on these state assessments. The Capital Project is going very well. It is on time and on budget. All of the site work (outside work) has been completed and now we turn our attention to the last phase of the project: the center portion of the Middle School/High School. At the Elementary School, both gyms have been renovated and they look great. The football/all-weather track stadium has been completed. Once spring arrives, feel free to use and enjoy the

all-weather track.  Our new transportation facility will open in late February/early March. This will be a modern, up-to-date facility that will serve our transportation needs for years to come. The entire project is due to be completed in late summer/early fall of 2013 and upon completion, the district will host a community open house. I hope that you will be able to attend and observe the outstanding facilities that we have created for our students and community. As always, please do not hesitate to contact us if we can be of service to you as it is imperative that home and school work together for the benefit of every child. Sincerely,

Robert C. D’Angelo Superintendent of Schools    

Soaring to New Heights The December Soaring to New Heights Awards honored three individuals for their dedication to Holley students. Paula Sanford (left) and Lynn Vendetti were recognized for their work implementing the Girls on the Run program at Holley Elementary. Sanford and Vendetti were the mentors for 15 girls in grades 3-5 who participated in the program, which culminated with a 5K run.

Alex Mounts, an eighth-grade student at the Middle/High School, helps his fellow students stay on task and work diligently to complete their coursework, earing the district-wide accolade. Mounts was nominated by Whitney Davis. Davis said that the student Mounts assists would be lost without his help and that she really appreciates the extra mile that he goes.

Postcard Auction

helps families in need


rt students at the Middle School/ High School recently created small works of art for a good cause. More than 65 students sold 114 postcard size pieces of art in a clothesline silent auction event at the Holiday Concert. Art Teacher Jason Elsner and School Counselor Kristina Mack were brainstorming ideas on how to make the arts more visible in the Holley community before deciding on an art auction. Concert attendees put raffle tickets in bags next to the art they liked and then winning tickets were drawn. In all, the event raised $60 for Food for Families, a district initiative that helps families in need during the school recesses.

Helper lessons include visit from a veterinarian


PK students recently celebrated helpers in the community and had special visitors as well. Mrs. Cheryl Kipp’s class was visited by a dental hygienist, pizza maker, martial artist, fireman, dance teacher, police officer and, on Nov. 28, a veterinarian.

isa Wischerath’s Environmental Science class recently visited two classes at the Elementary School to share books and activity books that they created with an environmental science theme.

Carissa Klossner clutches her stuffed turtle as she reviews a radiograph from her veterinarian kit.

Before Dr. Wiley came into the classroom, the students made their own veterinarian kits that included paper thermometers, crepe paper gauze and faux radiographs. Mrs. Kipp also provided each student with a stuffed pet to take home.


HS science class helps teach younger students about the environment


Dr. Krista Wiley from Wiley’s Ark interacted with the students and discussed her job as a veterinarian. She also brought Bella, her dog, and many examples of the tools she works with into the classroom. Students were able to see radiographs from different animals and hear about how Dr. Wiley helped them to get better.

“We wrote children’s books as the first environmental project of the year since children’s books contained some of our first childhood exposures to environmental science themes and issues,” said Wischerath. Before the students wrote their stories, they read and reviewed children’s books to get ideas.

Environmental Science student and junior Kayla Gannon reads the book she wrote about the environment to classes at the Elementary School.

Students in Loretta Giarrizzo’s second grade and Jolynda Sevenski’s third grade classes listened to the stories and then received activity books that they could take home and share with their families.

Paralympics videos provide lessons to PE classes


tudents in Jill Mann’s physical education class recently viewed a video of a sitting volleyball match from the 2012 Paralympics. After watching the video, the students tried the sport themselves. The middle school girls’ classes were asked to take the lesson beyond the classroom, watching and reflecting on a couple videos from the Paralympics. Seventh grader Angela Weaver wrote, “After watching the video of a sitting volleyball match, I feel comforted. I feel comforted because the players that were disabled are equalized by everyone sitting. I also feel happy because I know that if I were ever paralyzed or handicapped in some way I can still play sports. Sports are important to me.”

Holiday Days of Shopping a success!

“Previously, we have done an ad campaign to try and help relay the messages to the younger students,” said Lepkowski. “This year, we wanted to take it a step further.” “These messages are very important and the message comes across even stronger when the younger students hear directly from the older students,” added Lepkowski.

PJ Duffy presents to the fifth-graders of Brenda Schurr’s class about bullying and body image.

The ninth-grade students read books related to their topics and then researched the topics and created a PowerPoint presentation. Lepkowski’s students also created skits based on scenes in the books they read. As a culmination to all of their hard work, the students traveled over to the elementary school, performed their skits and presented to the younger students. Lepkowski asked each presenter to share something they learned with the younger students. “Don’t change yourself. People will love you the way you are if they’re your friends,” said PJ Duffy, a student who read “Maximum Ride” by James Patterson.

The annual Holley Holiday Days of Shopping was on Nov. 29 and 30 for parents of HCSD students. New and gently used toys and gifts were available to the parents, free of charge. Students are seen here categorizing and setting up the gifts in the Middle/High School auditorium.

Thank you to those who donated gifts at the schools and throughout the village.

Capital Project update Students prepare Food are a few updates on the Capital Project. Thanks for Families bags Below to the hard work and diligence of those involved, the project is on time and on budget with completion coming in late summer/early fall of 2013. • Renovations have been completed at both gyms at the Elementary School.

• During the week of Dec. 17, the Middle/High School library started to be moved to accommodate pending work. The library will temporarily be housed in the sky-lit courtyard, which was recently completed. Three new classrooms adjacent to the courtyard will also be available to the Middle/High School when classes resume after holiday recess.

• The bus maintenance facility continues to take shape and will open in late February/early March. Radiant heat flooring and lighting were recently installed in the work and lift bays, along with continued work in other areas of the facility. A perk of the new facility is its location separate from the traffic of students and visitors. However, individuals have been disregarding the speed limit of the road connecting the bus garage to the two buildings. Please be mindful of the speed limits posted. 8
