Dear Families in the Middle,

Thanks to several 8th grade students and Mrs. Engstrom-Yde, ALL 8th graders participated in our first 8th grade Future Fair Thursday afternoon. Student partner teams researched topics including:
* What High School courses should I take?
* How do I prepare a resume?
* What does a college application look like?
Presentations, games, and information flyers were impressive and informative. These will be re-shared for parents during our Academic Open House Thursday, May 5, in our 8th grade houses. Please be sure to include this special event in your family calendar!

We're "Pairing Up to Help Out!" at HMS. Hudson Police Department is collecting shoes to be sent to people in developing countries across the world through the organization. Donations of unwanted pairs of shoes or boots will help individuals in need AND will raise money to purchase an autism service dog for a police officer's son. Thanks to the initiative of Mrs. Maren Luedtke and Officer James Wildman and the generosity of many, many middle level families, we have collected more than 385 pairs of shoes! Pairs of shoes and boots can be sent to HMS until Friday, April 29.

At the national level, it's EVERY KID HEALTHY WEEK April 24 - 30!
Rather than celebrating this week, we are anticipating a couple of district-wide efforts in early May.
Wednesday, May 4 - BIKE or WALK to school day!
Week of May 9 - 13 - POWER UP! Each day will include a healthy focus. Stay tuned for details.
