Help us celebrate the hard work of our HMS staff and teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week!
We are planning a Taco Bar lunch for the teachers and staff at HMS for May 3rd. Please see the SignUp Genius link below to sign up. The items listed on the SignUp Genius are suggestions to make the Taco Bar complete, but feel free to bring whatever you would like that you think the staff would enjoy! All donations are greatly appreciated.
Please have your items to the HMS office prior to 10 AM on Wednesday, May 3rd. Label any dishes that you would like back and have your child (or yourself) pick up at the end of the day.
Thank you for helping to show the HMS staff how much we appreciate all they do!
Hello Hudson Middle School Parents and Families,
We are looking for interested people to join us in our mission of “providing support and resources to the school and parents for the benefit and educational growth of our children.” You are all dedicated parents who expressed an interest in helping out in the past or have helped with ongoing activities. Thank you so much! We know that parents and kids have busy schedules and finding the time to volunteer can be difficult but also REWARDING!
During this school year, we have been “short staffed” in that we do not have a 6th grade parent representative. In the 2017-18 school year, we have two board members whose children are in 8th grade and will be moving on to high school. We are looking to fill these open positions.
The time period in Middle School is very short but parental involvement is still needed. In some ways, our kids need us even more than when they were little! Being a part of Parent Group can be very beneficial:
- It gives you a chance to connect with other parents who are raising teens
- It shows your children that you are connected to and supportive of their education
- It allows connection with the school administration and teachers
- You have a chance to let share your thoughts and opinions in a supportive group
We’d love the chance to talk to you more about the HMS Parent Group. Please feel free to contact Susan Richards at email@example.com or Molly Powers at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your support and participation!

NEW! Gaga Pit
HMSPG is raising funds to build a Gaga Pit on the Hudson Middle School Grounds. Due to construction at the middle school, the building of the Gaga Pit will likely not occur until Fall 2017 or Spring 2018.
Gaga is a game with a lightweight bouncy ball and an octagon shaped enclosure. The object of the game is to hit the ball at or below opponents’ knees to eliminate them from the pit. The last player left in the Gaga Pit is the winner. It’s a great game for any age or ability and encourages kids to have fun while getting physical activity!
In the meantime, thanks to a generous donation from the Hudson Noon Rotary, we are already $500.00 towards our $2,500.00 goal! If you would like to donate, please write checks to Hudson Middle School Parent Group with “Gaga Pit” in the memo line. You can donate online by going to justgive.org. When you donate electronically, please make a notation that your donation is for the Gaga Pit and it will be set aside accordingly for that purpose.
Did you know that you can donate all year to the HMS Parent Group using the DONATE NOW button? If regular fundraisers aren’t your thing, please consider a TAX DEDUCTIBLE donation using this link above. Thank you!
