Community Labor Day Truck Parade and Ice Cream Social Grows

Community Labor Day Truck Parade and Ice Cream Social Grows

The Holland/Zeeland Community Labor Day Truck Parade, taking place on September 3, is a celebration of our local businesses and workforce. The event has exceeded last year's parade participation with close to 60 large trucks from companies that produce and distribute goods from the Holland/Zeeland area. These big rigs "bring the noise" as they roll through downtown Zeeland beginning at 9:15am. The parade will arrive in Holland at approximately 9:30am and end at the Holland Civic Center where free ice cream, hot dogs and giveaway items will be handed out (while supplies last).
 
We invite the community to join in the celebration by cheering on the trucks along the parade route and then joining us at the Holland Civic Center directly after the parade.  Whether you're new to the area or a long-time resident this is an event you won't want to miss! So, be sure to bring your family, friends and co-workers to this annual celebration and don't forget your earplugs!

Autism-friendly housing soon available in Holland

HOLLAND, Mich. (WZZM)- Benjamin's Hope is a first of its kind community built for families affected by autism.

The project involves a 40 acre property in Holland, which will include six residential homes tailored specifically to those who have special needs.

Krista Mason has been working on Benjamin's Hope for the past two years and named the project after her 17-year-old son who has autism.

Each home has the space to accommodate four adults, with their own bedrooms and living areas.

Two homes are almost ready. Mason says they should be completed in the next couple of months.

Community support is important. Benjamin's Hope is holding an "awareness raiser" for the community.

The family-friendly event will take place September 13th from 6-9 p.m. at 15468 Riley Street in Holland.

Zeeland iPad rollout continues

Zeeland iPad rollout continues

From: http://www.zps.org

Our sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students will receive iPads this year in the second phase of our iPad rollout. All students will be required to complete “digital citizenship” training and must attend an introductory meeting with their parents in order to receive the devices.

Middle school students will be limited to using iPads in the classroom and will not be able to take the tablets home until issues of filtering internet content are resolved. Apple is expected to release its iOS 6 operating system this fall and a key piece reportedly included is a robust, universal internet filtering capability.
“Zeeland Public Schools will be reviewing these new options from Apple before we make the decision to allow middle school students to bring the devices home,” Interim Superintendent Gary L. Feenstra said.
