2017-2018 School Supply Kits – Order by June 2, 2017

Are you tired of driving from store to store to purchase school supplies for your child? Great news! We are once again offering the SchoolKidz School Supply Kit for our families. School Supply Kits include the exact colors, quantities, and brands teachers are requesting in a personalized box ready for your child’s first day of school. This was popular for families last year and we decided to bring it back this year.

NEW! Gaga Pit

Parent Group 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  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.
