Box Tops Classroom Contest

Mrs. Boyd’s class won the box tops contest this fall.  Her class collected over 500 box tops, and all the classes at Hudson Prairie collected over 4,000 box tops school-wide!   Great Job!


 PTO Volunteer Opportunity

The Hudson Prairie Yearbook Committee is seeking volunteers for classroom photographers! You may have noticed that we have chosen to work with Lifetouch for our yearbook this year. So far, it has been a positive change. 

Responsibilities of classroom photographers: 

-At least 2 all-class pictures

-At least 1 picture of all of the girls in the class

-At least 1 picture of all of the boys in the class

-Multiple small group pictures (no single pictures will be used) 

In addition to classrooms, we will need pictures of kids news, Camp Saint Croix, Immigration Day and Mad Scientist Day (4th grade), and Prairie Fire Theater. 

If you are interested in becoming a classroom photographer, please send an email to hudsonprairieyearbook@gmail.com stating the grade level, classroom teacher and/or activities that you are interested in.  Thank you! 

A huge perk of working with Lifetouch is that they partner with Shutterfly. This means that we have access to the Sharesites app. Folders have been set up for each teacher along with specials, and other HP events. ALL parents are encouraged to download the app and add classroom pictures to the appropriate folders. We are excited to see all of your pictures! 

If you have questions, please reach out to Jessica Radke at the above email.  Looking forward to your help creating a great Yearbook for our kids this year! 

Jessica Radke and Tanya Weiss, Yearbook Team
