Earth Day at North Hudson

North Hudson students post with decorated grocery bags for Earth Day.

Second graders in Mrs. Lewis and Mrs. Filarsky’s classes at North Hudson Elementary partnered with Family Fresh for the “Earth Day Bags” project. The project is done by students all over the United States to share and learn about Earth Day. Students decorated grocery bags for customers to use with environmental facts and suggestions to help us appreciate and take care of our Earth.

The School District has created the Mental Health Advisory Council consisting of staff, students, parents, and community members. The purpose of the Advisory is to discuss issues and barriers but most importantly, to develop goals to increase collaboration to better meet the needs of all our community members.

The Mental Health Advisory Council will seek different view points, gather meaningful input, and encourage solutions to address identified mental health issues within the Hudson School District.

Orchestra Announces Sting Ray Violin Winner

Congratulations to River Crest 3rd grader, Maddie M., on winning an autographed Mark Wood Sting Ray Violin at the recent Orchestra Electrify Your Strings Concert. Maddie won the violin by correctly guessing the number of tuning pegs in a jar. The correct number was 116. Three other people guessed correctly and Maddie’s name was then randomly drawn from a box containing the names of all of the correct answers.

The Hudson Orchestra Program would like to thank Mark Wood and Coda Bows for their donation of the violin. This made an already spectacular concert even more special. The Hudson Orchestra Program was able to raise over $1,000 for scholarships and future guest artist experiences.
