Gildea Board of Directors Ron Yoder, President Darlee Sill, Vice President Peter Hart Troy Keefer Brady Leahey Aaron Ritchey Walter Tomassetti Robert Vonada Stephanie Wertz It is truly an honor for me to be the Superintendent of Schools for the Hollidaysburg Area School District. I have been a lifelong resident of Hollidaysburg and have served the district as a teacher, coach, principal, athletic director and now superintendent. I can think of no better way to give back to the community that has done so much for me than as your superintendent; knowing that without the wonderful teachers, coaches, parent volunteers and supportive community members that have guided me along the way, I would never be in this position. Hollidaysburg Area School District has a long established tradition of academic excellence. Generations before us have committed themselves to maintaining a strong public school system. It is my goal to continue that commitment through these challenging fiscal times while providing our children with a quality education that will prepare them for whatever career path they choose to pursue. The Hollidaysburg Area School District teachers, support staff, administration, and Board of Education are proud to present the highlights of this past school year. You will find as you peruse the following pages that the commitment the Hollidaysburg Area community has made to public education has produced remarkable results. On behalf of the Board of Education, administration, teachers, staff and students I want to thank you for your support. I invite you to witness the great things that are happening firsthand by taking in a play, concert, athletic event or simply becoming a school volunteer.

4 Senior High Congratulations Valedictorian Joana W. Li Salutatorian Nur Cardakli 2013 National Merit Scholarship Finalists Hollidaysburg Area Senior High School students, Joana Li and Roman Drake, were named as Finalists in the National Merit Scholarship competition. Joana Li was selected as a winner of the competition. To become a finalist, a semifinalist must have an outstanding academic record Roman Drake and Joana Li throughout high school, be endorsed and recommended by the high school principal, and earn SAT scores that confirm the student s earlier performance on the qualifying test. The semifinalist and a high school official must submit a detailed scholarship application, which includes the student s essay and information about the semifinalist s participation and leadership in school and community activities. Approximately 15,000 semifinalists advance to the finalist level and it is from this group that approximately 8,300 National Merit Scholarship winners are chosen. Kyle Brashear, Nur Cardakli, Sarah Kordish and Brian Urban were recognized as National Merit Scholarship Commended students. Commended students placed among the top 5% of the 1.5 million students who entered the competition. Commended students are Brian Urban, Nur Cardakli, Sarah Kordish and Kyle Brashear. Never Sell Our Young People Short That was the message The Chamber s Buy Here. Live Here. Committee took away from a meeting with fifteen high school students from Hollidaysburg Area High School. At the urging of Chamber President Joe Hurd, the students designed a strategy aimed at promoting the concept of local buying to a consumer group with more than a little bit of influence. They showed us how to grab the attention of young people from elementary school through high school, Committee Chair Randy Green reported. They emphasized that buying decisions that are often attributed to adults are actually made by their sons and daughters. They challenged us to take their insight and to move forward with it. It was eye-opening. The students represented a marketing class headed by teacher Jude Decort. They understood how important local buying was to the quality of life of where they live, Decort explained. They also were aware that too often their opinions on what happens here don t always seem to matter. They wanted to have an impact and they put a lot of time and thought into what would mean the most to people their age. I think they covered it pretty well. So does Hurd. I could never have imagined that merely suggesting that the students take a look at this would result in such great feedback, Hurd acknowledged. Our committee now has a blueprint of how to reach this particular group of consumers. Shame on us if we let the ball drop. Front row: Seth Morris, Zack Weaver, Gage Hollingshead, Jacob Barton and Kyle Eberhart. Back row: Dylan Cannarsa, Colin Schultz, Keegan Brunner, Jordan Kirsch, Hannah Mercer, Sierra Shoeman, Alexis Wilt, Andy Rubritz and Mike Roberts.

5 Key Club has a Busy Year Key Club members kept active this year with over forty-seven events, and over one hundred opportunity service hours. Activities included: Safe Trickor-Treat Night, Operation SOS, Big Brothers Big Sisters Christmas Party and Shopping, Senior Citizen Prom, March of Dimes fundraisers, Read Across America and a Zumba-Thon to name a few of the various activities that club members participated in. Safe Trick-or-Treat night, held in October, benefited the Zack Hinish Foundation. Over twenty clubs with approximately two hundred high school students hosted over three hundred elementary age students to games, crafts, candy and cookie decorating. The event raised over $800 for the Zack Hinish Foundation. The Senior Citizen Prom was held February 14th and the event featured music from the 1950 s, 1960 s and a few modern songs. The event was a great experience for all involved, and the club hopes that it grows every year. The Read Across America event was the third year in which the Key Club participated. Twenty Key Club members and approximately one hundred elementary age kids played games, read books and made crafts centered around Dr. Seuss books. At the end of the event, Mrs. Cathy Breisacher shared the story of her book publishing and read her book Petunia Peppers Picture Day. As the event wrapped up, the kids decorated and ate cookies and received coloring and story books as they left for the evening. Key Club Members Tiny Tigers and Key Club members worked together again this year to raise funds for March of Dimes. Fundraisers this year included bake sales, candy sales, Family Skate at Galactic Ice, Zumba-thon, t-shirts sales and Dime Wars. Everyone involved worked very hard to raise $12, to help fund March of Dimes research. Key Club hopes to continue to be the top National Key Club fundraising team again this year. Senior High Science Olympiad Fifteen students competed in the Science Olympiad Competition in March at California University of Pennsylvania. The team of Naaila Ali and Nur Cardakli placed second in the Designer Genes event, which required the students to solve problems involving molecular genetics and biotechnology. The team of Roman Drake and David Hess placed fourth in the Fermi Questions event, which required the students to make estimate answers to questions and problems that could not be solved directly. Nur Cardakli, David Hess, Roman Drake, and Naaila Ali. Student Participates in American Invitational Mathematics Competition Roman Drake, a senior at the Hollidaysburg Area Roman Drake Senior High School, participated in the 29 th annual American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME). He qualified for the AIME by scoring 100% (approximately the top 1%) on the American Mathematics Contest 12 (AMC 12, 12 th grade and below). This contest was established in 1973 as an intermediate step between the high school contests and the USA Mathematical Olympiad. The AIME is a 15 question, 3 hour examination in which each answer is an integer number from 0 to 999. The questions on the AIME cover high school mathematics, are much more difficult than those on the AMC 10 and AMC 12, and students are very unlikely to obtain the correct answer by guessing. All problems on the AIME can be solved by pre-calculus methods and the use of calculators is not permitted. The AIME provides the students who are invited to take it with the opportunity to challenge their mathematical abilities. Like all examinations, it is but a means toward furthering mathematical development and interest. The real rewards come from challenging each student with mathematics that is new, different and outside of the box. Mathematics is increasingly important in our technological and scientific age. Taking enough mathematics in high school is the gateway to jobs and careers of all kinds. By offering these contests, we can challenge and inspire students to want to learn more mathematics. 5

APPLES participants Bandarama By Marissa McCoy, 9 th grade Bandarama is a feature concert that is held annually to highlight the junior and senior high school marching bands, majorettes and dance drill in grades seven through twelve. The groups perform their pregame and halftime music and routines in the junior high auditorium. This is a great opportunity for the parents who are unable to attend the football games to see the finished product of all the hard work the students and directors have put into the season. Each year, the directors create a list of music that the bands will play, which are then given to the dance drill and majorettes to choose which routines they will perform during the concert. The bands, majorettes and dance drill have practices in the auditorium to go over the concert. Both the junior and senior high drum lines put in extra practice to fill in transition times. The lighting, ticket sales and the program are taken care of by the directors and HAMPA (Hollidaysburg Area Music Parents Association) volunteers to ensure that everything will go smoothly. The rest is up to the students to make the performance a memorable one. Trout in the Classroom Mr. John Yogus seventh-grade science classes are participating in the Trout in the Classroom program at Hollidaysburg Area Junior High School.

National Junior Honor Society, along with the band and a few of the orchestra students, served breakfast and entertained the veterans. The veterans told stories about the wars and their lives when they were younger. They also spoke about their friends and about the breakfast itself. Some veterans have been coming to the breakfast for three years or longer. Several junior high students read essays aloud during the program, stating the importance of the veterans and the day which honors them. Everybody seemed to have a good time talking to the veterans and the veterans seemed to enjoy talking to the kids. Women Back to the Future: Patriots in Petticoats In April, Kate Campbell Stevenson performed a school-wide assembly at the Junior High School entitled Women Back to the Future: Patriots in Petticoats.

Candidates included David Snyder, CC Paul, Lucy Wagner, Makenzie Wilkinson and Maddison Fitch from Mrs. Hurd s classes. Candidates from Mr. Kirsch s classes included Andrew Yanowsky, Nick McIntyre and Kevin Roberts. Students from the classes then supported their candidate by making commercials, audio ads, posters, pins, yard signs and more. Candidates then wrote speeches and presented them to other classes for the Primaries. Candidates gave their speech and showed some of their ads and posters. Everyone who has Mrs. Hurd for civics voted to see who would represent her class and the same for Mr. Kirsch s. Students voted, but the vote in Mrs. Hurd s class came out a tie. David Snyder and Makenzie Wilkinson would both move on to the general election. Andrew Yanowsky came out the winner in Mr. Kirsch s classes. Junior High All ninth grade students then assembled in the auditorium on Tuesday, November 6 th for the general election. Candidates participated in a debate narrated by Jack Ansley. After the debate, candidates gave their speeches to the large auditorium crowd. Then the voting began. The election format would follow that of the real election, with the different civics classes representing the states. Each class would be assigned a number of votes for the Electoral College. The classes voted, and the results were in. Mackenzie Wilkinson won the popular vote, but Andrew Yanowsky won the Electoral College. Supporting Red Ribbon Week By Candice Brannan and Olivia Bowmaster, 9 th grade Red Ribbon week at the Hollidaysburg Area Junior High School was held for one week in October. During Red Ribbon Week, the junior high students pledge their commitment to be drug free. On Monday, students had the opportunity to sign a banner at lunch. On Tuesday, students were asked to wear red to show their support on being drug free. On Wednesday, students and staff got to wear their favorite team jerseys. Thursday was team spirit day. Students and staff got to wear blue and white to show their school spirit. During school, students had an assembly for the teachers to tell them about Red Ribbon Week and how you can do things other than drugs. The week-long event ended with crazy-sock day. Snowflakes for Sandy Hook In the weeks leading up to the re-opening of Sandy Hook Elementary School, many schools asked What can we do? In response, there was a call for Snowflakes for Sandy Hook. The thought was that students and teachers across the country could make and send snowflakes that could be used to decorate the halls of the new school building to welcome students back. The response far exceeded expectations. More than a million snowflakes were received from schools, PTAs, community centers and families around the world. Since the outpouring was so overwhelming, the Hollidaysburg Junior High School decided to decorate our building and send photos of the snowflakes to Newtown, CT. With the help of the seventh-grade teams, Miss Herbaugh and the National Junior Honor Society, Mrs. Schmouder and her German students, Mrs. Wertz-Leiden and her art students and many other volunteers, we were proud to show our support to the victims and families of the Sandy Hook tragedy. An electronic picture book was sent to Newtown, CT for everyone to enjoy. 11

Their Geocache consisted of a treasure chest, three artifacts from their shipwreck, an explanation about their artifact and a letter written from the captain. After all their hard work, the students were given flip video cameras and a GPS System in which they became lost at sea on the Foot of Ten playground to locate a sunken treasure that was created by their classmates. Students also practiced their public speaking skills by presenting information to the class. Elementary Learning Wraps Fifth-grade students from Foot of Ten were recently supplied with a math fact learning tool called Learning Wraps, thanks to the gracious donation by the HASD Foundation. The program consists of keys that review addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts. Students, while practicing the facts, must wrap a string around the key and it helps them determine where mistakes have been made. Mr. McClelland and Mrs. Tewell use the keys on a daily basis for students to continue to work towards mastery of math facts. The tools are being used in the classroom, and students borrow them each night to continue to practice. The students really enjoy the hands-on approach to learning and are showing strong growth in their recall of facts!

Pi Day On March 14, 2013, the sixth-grade students from Mr. Madden s math class at Charles W. Longer Elementary celebrated Pi Day with their own technology. Students used their tablets and smart phones to scan several QR codes to actively and collaboratively discover more about pi. Answers were then discussed using Socrative, an interactive, real time website that allows students to share their answers on their smart phones and tablets. After learning about pi, students enjoyed more pie, this time in the traditional sense, with a pie eating contest at the end of the day. To see more pictures of BYOT for Pi Day and the pie eating contest, scan the QR code or visit Trophy Finds a Permanent Home Daffodil Days may have ended this spring, but the inspiration of Mr. Bob Bundy, a former teacher at Foot of Ten Elementary school, was evident.

Once again, Foot of Ten Elementary school was the top-selling school in Blair County, a distinction the school has held since The goal for the school was to sell 20,000 daffodils. The goal was surpassed with a total of 24,383 daffodils being sold for a total of more than $27,000! The school secured the Bob Bundy Daffodil trophy, the award presented to the top-selling school.

Held in February at the Marine Corps Depot at Parris Island, South Carolina, educators were given the opportunity to observe first-hand how a young man or woman earns the title of United States Marine. Educators participated in a hands-on sample of boot camp, from the famed yellow footprints to the graduation ceremony, all of which leave a lasting impression on participants. Educators also learned about a Marine s daily life, educational benefits and code of conduct. Educators traveled to a Marine Corps Air Station and met with more experienced Marines who are currently serving with operational forces. The Marine Corp Educators Workshop is an all-expense paid trip for educators to the Marine Corps Depot for an insider s look at the making of a marine and the opportunities provided by military service. 25
