Dear Families in the Middle,

Such a delightful 6th grade choral and orchestra concert Monday evening! I am especially drawn into the rhythm of African music; the percussion and student movements were remarkable! What a large, talented and hard-working group of musicians we enjoy here in-the-middle!

This is Teen Read Week at Hudson Middle School! I noticed Hermione Granger from Harry Potter, Katniss from The Hunger Games, Superman, and Pinkalicious in our Hallways! Thank you to Mrs. Halstead and her team for planning this week of focus on reading with our students.

We're enjoying more daylight as spring approaches and hoping you feel the effects in the form of more energy, less stress and a happier spirit. In my experience, February is second to October in terms of high stress levels for educators. Thank you for the many ways you partner with our dedicated educators in support of our middle-level learners! Whether you provided food for the conference meal last week, purchased and donated a book from our Book Fair, or sent an affirming message our way...your kindness is so appreciated!

8th Grade students in Mr. Fosse's World Studies Class in the Norman House chose a particular war to research and share with others. Their study included key events, power players, historians' input, primary source quotes, causes, attempts made at peace, and a comparison to the American Revolutionary War. Students also provided each other with meaningful feedback and Mr. Fosse with feedback for future projects and learning.
