Houlton Alumni from the High School Wrestling Team Visit Houlton

High School student reads to a group of elementary students

Some Houlton alumni from the High School Varsity Wrestling team made a visit to Houlton Elementary School. The team members shared how reading is important in their lives. Team members talked about how they need to read to succeed in school but also to keep current on wrestling rules. They shared how they also use their reading skills to learn about hunting regulations, reading signs when they are snowboarding, and researching golf tips.

Hudson High School Students Join Houlton’s Family, Fun and Fitness Night

This year’s final Family, Fun and Fitness night in April included Hudson High School students who helped in our giant game of Hungry, Hungry Hippo! The High School Anatomy & Physiology class helped to put on a Health Fair as part of our night. The Houlton School goal was to promote health and wellness within the elementary community. The High School students focused on the importance of water, exercise, food choices and personal hygiene.

Hudson High School students received a PowerUp Student Ambassador Grant. As part of the grant these students teamed up with Houlton Elementary School to organize the open gym night and they volunteered over 20 hours to the PowerUp program.

Thanks to the families and students who made this event a success!
