The Hudson School District believes that building a community-wide response to mental health awareness and services is critical in supporting our children. 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.

2nd graders at North Hudson Elementary have been researching influential people and finished their unit by presenting a “Wax Museum.” Each student chose an influential person to research who has made an impact on the world. Students created posters and shared their learning with their classmates and teachers and posed as the influential people they’d studied.

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.
