The PTO is in need of yearbook volunteers to assist in putting together this year’s yearbook.  We are looking for a main contact for each classroom to provide group photos and a main contact to organize the group photo page layout (if you’re feeling extra ambitious, these jobs could be managed by the same person).

  •        Photographers – between now and early-January, take/collect ~10 group pictures from your designated classroom (at least 4 kids/picture; holiday parties, field trips, special class project work, full class photos, etc.) The following classrooms are in need of Photographers:  Klanderman (1st), DeLong (1st), Swavely (4th), & Skajewski (5th).
  •       Layout Coordinators – mid-Jan to mid-Feb, arrange the layout of your designated classroom’s page online, using the pictures provided by the classroom’s photographer. The following classrooms are in need of Layout Coordinators:  Skajewski (5th) & Stanchik (5th).   If you are interested in learning more about this volunteer opportunity, please contact Danielle at

If you would like to make a cash donation to the PTO please use this Cash Donation link or simply make a check payable to “Hudson Prairie PTO” with cash donation in the subject line and return it with your child to school. Thank you for your continued support of the PTO!

It’s Box Tops Contest Time!  
For this contest, we’ve organized our school into teams to see who can turn in the most Box Tops the fastest.  Teams will be broken out by grade, so all of the kindergarten classrooms will be one team, all of the first grade classrooms will be another, etc.  Check out our bulletin board in the lobby to see our Box Tops game board.  For every 50 Box Tops handed in, your grade’s game piece will move forward 1 square.  The first team to reach 800 Box Tops will win a special prize for the whole grade!  
The contest will start October 1st (and will end Oct 28th or whenever a team gets to 800 Box Tops).  Any Box Tops sent in already this year will count.  We’ll update the board every few days so don’t wait, send in your Box Tops in a baggie with your child’s name/grade on it and drop them off in the lobby.  If your family has multiple kids at Hudson Prairie, just put all of their names/grades on the baggie and we’ll divide them up equally between the kids.  You can clip Box Tops from over 250 products (check out the list at
