Fall 2018 School Climate & Culture Points of Pride
HHS/HEC/HVRT has been working hard to implement PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions & Support), a schoolwide system that includes proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and acknowledging appropriate student behaviors to create positive school environments. Because of this work, we’re proud to share the incredible impacts that this initiative has already had on our campus climate & culture.

2018 Fall discipline referrals by have been reduced by 47% when compared to Fall 2017!

  • 85% of the student body has never received a discipline referral
  • 91% of all discipline referrals involve minor discipline offenses.
  • Seniors have shown incredible leadership, as they represent only 8.7% of all discipline referrals

We’d like to acknowledge the PBIS team for their leadership, and acknowledge school staff for embedding the expectations of our matrix into their classroom practices. We’d like to celebrate our student body for continuing to choose positive behaviors, both inside and outside of the classroom. This is the foundation from which you’ll achieve great success in college, career, and community. To our families, we’d like to acknowledge the work you do to develop wonderful young adults, individuals that we’re proud to work with every day. Thank you for supporting and reinforcing our behavior expectations at home.

We challenge our school community to keep improving. Keep in mind, many of our referrals are for minor infractions that could easily be fixed. Small changes in behavior could cause big positive impacts on our school community. Keep working hard. You got this!

Remember, at HHS/HEC/HVRT we value and celebrate the qualities that make us unique; include others and work together to achieve our goals; challenge ourselves and others to grow; dedicate our best effort, and stand up for what is right.

Toys for Tots
Want donuts? Tell your advisory to collect the most Toys for Tots! Our goal to beat this year
is 376 toys! All you have to do is bring your toys to the front office, put your advisory teacher’s name on the sheet and how many toys you brought, and keeping telling others to do so. You have until Dec. 15 to turn in your toys. Rotary believes you can do it and so do the kids.

Holland High School Girls Varsity Basketball beat Godwin Heights 59-36
The Lady Dutch won their first game of the season 59-36 over Godwin Heights in the home opener. Holland jumped out to a 20-3 first quarter lead and never looked back. "Tonight we showed what we can do when we play as a team. We had contributions from everyone. When we play with this kind of confidence and work together, we can be dangerous," said Holland Coach Dan Telgenhof. Holland was led in scoring by Angel Smith with 16, while Faith White added 12. The story of the game, however, was Holland's ability to disrupt the Wolverines flow on offense. The Lady Dutch used strong closeouts and rebounding to put the game away. Sophie VanDyke had 12 rebounds and 3 blocks to go with her 6 points, while Anika Wehrmeyer added 7 points and 5 boards. Godwin Heights was led by R. Koppenhofer with 24 points. The Holland JV also beat Godwin Heights in the Dome. The Lady Dutch travel across town to West Ottawa later in the week. Freshmen and JV on Thursday and Varsity on Friday.
