The Joy of Dance!

A group of elementary and High School students gathered in the gym.

The Hudson High School Rhinestone Raiders recently visited North Hudson Elementary School and performed for Mrs. Anfinsons and Mr. Schiltgen’s special education students, as well as fifth graders in Mrs. Brackemyers class. Following their performance, the group of high schoolers taught our junior Raiders some dance moves. It was fun to have some former North Hudson Elementary students return and share some time with the young learners.

The Rhinestone Raiders are a Hudson High School club that provides peer-to-peer support for students with disabilities through the shared enjoyment of cheerleading and dance. The group focuses on building confidence, teamwork, perseverance, friendship, inclusion and school spirit.

Artist Visits North Hudson

Artist Katie Mattis demonstrates attaching a clay handle to a pot.

Local ceramic artist Katie Mattis recently visited North Hudson Elementary School. Katie showed the students some of her ceramic pieces that she made when she was their age, alongside many pieces that she is currently creating. She taught the students about potters wheels, different types of clay, a kiln’s mechanics, how to attach handles, and many other ceramic techniques. She provided each student with a chunk of clay and worked with them step-by-step to create a mini ceramic version that replicates the types of ceramic dishes that she is currently creating in her studio space. She discussed what it means to be an artist and all her future goals as a professional ceramicist.

Thank you Katie Mattis for teaching our North Hudson students that we are all great artists!

North Hudson 5th Grade – Into the Woods

North Hudson students outside as a group.

Every year, each elementary school fifth-grade class spends several days at an environmental education camp. Our North Hudson fifth-grade enjoyed their experience at Camp Sandstone. This overnight experience, paired with the outdoor activities, serves to build knowledge, social-emotional skills and confidence for these older elementary children before their transition to middle school. 

Outdoor learning provides a unique opportunity to explore multiple subjects through hands-on, real-world activities. These activities make science, math, language arts and history fun. The children can see how social, ecological, economic and cultural issues are interconnected. 

Socially, the activities promote building citizenship and leadership skills. The children are challenged to share their knowledge and skills as they work in teams. Whether it is completing a ropes course together or building a fire, the children learn the importance of relying on each other for support and giving support to others. 

 

North Hudson First Grade Visit the Past

North Hudson Elementary School first grade students recently visited the Heritage Center in New Richmond. They compared their school to a one room school, learned how a blacksmith worked with metal, saw the Ubet general store, and learned how to navigate a world without technology. What a great way to make learning fun and how fortunate we are to have this area resource!
