Stadium Open House – Postponed to September 9th

We are regretfully delaying the community Raider Stadium Open House and celebration scheduled for this Saturday, August 19th. Over the past several weeks, weather has not been on our side. We believe our highest priority is to focus our construction efforts on opening the High School for students on time and safely this Thursday, August 17th.

We have decided to schedule Saturday, September 9th as our alternate Raider Stadium Open House. Our plan for the event will remain the same. The event is intended to be a community celebration of this new space that will serve our athletes of all ages.

Busy Inside and Outside at Hudson High School

High School footings and foundations for the new addition looking from the west to the east.

We are busy inside and outside at the High School! The auditorium is filled with scaffolding as part of the renovations to lighting, sound and house; the north west classrooms that support STRIVE, Family and Consumer Science, and Special Education classrooms have been redesigned and are now ready for drywall. In the front of the school you can see the footings for the new addition.

Governor Walker Visits Hudson High School

Governor Walker surrounded by students in the auditorium.

It was an honor to have Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker visit Hudson High School this morning (Friday, June 2nd). He was able to take a brief tour of the school where we highlighted the great work of our students and staff. Kudos to the Chemistry and Orchestra students who represented Hudson High School’s academic excellence.

Following his tour of the school, Governor Walker addressed students, staff, parents and community members in the auditorium. His remarks focused on the opportunities available to students who are going on to post-secondary learning or the workforce in Wisconsin. Perfect timing for our seniors who were in the audience as they prepare for graduation tomorrow. The Governor also spoke about his investment in K-12 school funding in his biennial budget proposal.

Governor Walker’s optimistic remarks and good humor were well received by the audience. Following the presentation, Board of Education President, Jamie Johnson and Superintendent Nick Ouellette had some time to chat directly with Governor Walker.
