Hudson schools Joins National Celebration Highlighting the Importance of School Lunch in Fueling Students for Success

For today’s students, the cafeteria serves as a place to connect with friends and fuel up for a day of learning and extracurricular activities, and school lunch provides a healthy, delicious and affordable way to nourish kids and build relationships. During National School Lunch Week from October 9-13, our cafeterias are celebrating school lunch with a variety of events and special menus.

Chartwells and the Hudson School district  is committed to promoting healthy eating habits among our students,” said Bonnie Stegmann, Finance Director for the Hudson School District. “National School Lunch Week provides an excellent platform for our school community to celebrate the role nutritious meals play in fostering academic success and the overall well-being of our students and their families.”

In partnership with foodservice partner Chartwells K12, students will enjoy classroom activities a variety of hands-on experiences and flavorful menu offerings, including:  Fresh Fruit Friday!

“Providing healthy, delicious meals to students is the core of what we do to serve up happy and healthy each day,” said Kimberly Lindstrom Dining Service Director with Chartwells K12 at Hudson. “By offering unique menu items like Chicken Tikka Masala and offering fun-filled nutrition education, we hope students will realize the positive impact school lunch can have on their focus, energy and success in school.”

First launched in 1962 by President John F. Kennedy, National School Lunch Week was created to raise awareness of the availability of the National School Lunch Program and to promote the importance of a healthy school lunch in a child’s life and the impact it has inside and outside of the classroom. This year’s theme is “Level Up with School Lunch,” reminding students and families of the healthy lunch options available at school.

Les Miserables

Les Misérables (School Edition) is the world’s longest running musical — a true modern classic based on Victor Hugo’s novel and featuring one of the most memorable scores of all time. The multi-award-winning Les Misérables is as groundbreaking today as it was when it first premiered in London in 1985.

In nineteenth century France, Jean Valjean is released from years of unjust imprisonment, but finds nothing in store for him but mistrust and mistreatment. He breaks his parole in hopes of starting a new life, initiating a lifelong struggle for redemption as he is relentlessly pursued by police inspector Javert, who refuses to believe Valjean can change his ways. Finally, during the Paris student uprising of 1832, Javert must confront his ideals after Valjean spares his life and saves that of the student revolutionary who has captured the heart of Valjean’s adopted daughter.

Winner of over 100 international awards and seen by over 70 million, this musical phenomenon is an epic tale of passion and redemption in the throes of revolution.

Speak Up Speak Out – 24 Hour Tip Line

Speak Up Speak Out logo

Speak Up Speak Out

The State of Wisconsin’s Office of School Safety provides a 24/7 tip line for reporting potential harm or criminal activities directed at schools, students, and or staff. The Speak Up, Speak Out (SUSO) School Resource Center is set up to respond confidentially and quickly. The tip line is not just for threats to do harm to schools. Tips are also made regarding daily concerns students encounter such as bullying, drug use, self-harm, suicidal thoughts and more. The Hudson School District is part of the SUSO network.

Most tips fall into one of three categories:

  • A classmate is being bullied or bullying someone else.
  • A classmate might hurt themselves.
  • A classmate might hurt others.

We all play a vital role in creating safe schools and communities. Anyone can submit a tip. Tips are received by a trained resource center staff who pass appropriate information on to local law enforcement and schools. We want people who see something to say something. SUSO allows us as a school community to keep each other safe, address concerns about someone’s safety, and help get the support needed to resolve concerns.

We encourage student and families to contact their building administrator or SUSO of any threats to do harm to a school.
