Together they have organized, promoted and collected winter gear for children in need. North Hudson Elementary collected hundreds of mittens for the mitten tree as well as many hats, coats, snow pants, boots and scarves.

Great work 2nd Graders!

Celebrating National Computer Science Week

Two elementary students sit with headphones on at their computers.

Students at North Hudson Elementary wrapped up National Computer Science Week by participating in an “Hour of Code.” Several grade levels and classrooms learned about code and had the opportunity to practice coding.

What is the Hour of Code?

  • The Hour of Code is a global movement reaching tens of millions of students in 180+ countries. The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify “code,” show that anyone can learn the basics, and broaden participation in the field of computer science.

Why would do we have students participate?

  • Every student should have the opportunity to learn computer science. It helps nurture problem-solving skills, logic and creativity. By starting early, students have a foundation for success in any 21st-century career path.

Expressing Gratitude

North Hudson Elementary School students spent time playing the Gratitude Game. Students responded to one or more of the following:

  • The person I am thankful for is…
  • The place I am thankful for is…
  • The thing I am thankful for is…
  • The memory I am thankful for is…
  • Free choice – name anything  you are thankful for…

The old temporary hallway has been removed and replaced with a larger hallway that will eventually open into the forum area. You see the auditorium entrance on the left in this image.

In the auditorium, work has been completed on the support systems above the ceiling of the “house.” New acoustical ceiling panels and lighting have been hung. Work is progressing on the new wood panel walls as well as cutting through the concrete floor for electrical prior to the installation of seating.
