Hudson Named 2020 Best Communities for Music Education

Best Communities for Music Education poster

Congratulations to the Hudson School District for receiving the 2020 Best Communities for Music Education award. The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) recognizes outstanding efforts by teachers, administrators, parents, students, and community leaders who have made music education part of a well-rounded education. Designations are made to school districts and schools that demonstrate an exceptionally high commitment and access to music education.

Awards are determined based on annual survey information. Survey questions are aligned with goals for equity and access to music education for all students, and also with national standards for music education.  This survey seeks to support communities everywhere that are working to assure music education opportunities for all students. Criteria selection gauges funding, participation, opportunity, standards, community, facilities, and other factors that affect access to comprehensive music education.

Thank you to our Hudson School District music teachers and the many community partners who support music as an essential component of learning in the lives of children!

 

Healthy Use of Screen Time

Multiple images of children using different screen time devices.

The Wisconsin Office of Children’s Mental Health offers the following information as a guide for families on the topic of screen time (click here to read Supporting Child Well-being Through Healthy Use of Screen Time).

“In Wisconsin, adolescents who experience episodes of major depression have steadily increased. At the same time, there has been a growing body of evidence to suggest the amount of screen time usage may initiate or worsen symptoms of anxiety and depression, reduce social connectedness, and contribute to poor social and emotional wellness.”

 

Love and Logic Parenting Class

“Parenting the Love and Logic Way” provides parents with practical, easy to use techniques and tools to help children become responsible adults. When parents us “Love and Logic” techniques with children, they are better able to hand the challenges of today’s real world.

Class is being offered at Hudson Prairie Elementary School on Tuesdays, March 10 – April 14 (there is no class the week of spring break). The classes are scheduled from 5:45 – 7:45 PM

The class is facilitated by Aria Krieser, school counselor at Hudson Prairie Elementary School, and Chris Strop, school counselor at North Hudson Elementary School.

Houlton Innovation Day

A group of students working together at desks.

Houlton Elementary School used the November Early Release Day to try something new – Innovation Day! Staff and students brainstormed a list of topics they wanted to teach or learn about. Students voted for their top ten choices and then signed up for two classes of their choice. The Innovation Day classes included stomp rockets, clay bead making, STEM, mystery science, fitness fun, slime, arts and crafts, origami, mindfulness, jewelry making, animals, drawing, and cooking. Staff enjoyed the change of pace and the students loved learning about something new!
