Dear Families in the Middle,

Our Hudson Middle School students and families, with the coordination of Student Council and Advisors Jaclyn Smith and Nicole Anthony, raised $1200 for Pennies for Patients, a program of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Thank you to all who contributed!

Walking Wednesdays
Thanks to the initiative of our HMS Health & Wellness Team, we've started Walking Wednesdays. Students have the option to walk our track from 7:15 - 7:30 every Wednesday morning. It's a great way to give everyone a break from devices and get energized for the day! Click here to see more images.

CHROMEBOOK collection:
Please make sure your student turns in the Chromebook and charger. An invoice will be sent to parents for any unreturned equipment. New Chromebooks will be issued to all 6th, 7th and 8th grade students in the fall. Thank you!

Please consider visiting Kye Bartlett's Caring Bridge site. Kye is an 8th grader here at Hudson Middle School who had open heart surgery last Saturday (May 21).  He is recovering and wishes he could come back to school. We're hopeful to see him at the Fare-Thee-Well.

Our neighbor, Prairie Elementary, is anticipating a special event this summer (June 24) to surprise Mrs. Klanderman, a first grade teacher, diagnosed with fourth stage melanoma in her lung. For more information please click here.

I am reminded of a sign on Ms. Blakeley's, one of our counselors, door: Everyone you meet is fighting a battle we know nothing about. Be kind. Always. 

We will continue to share Middle Musings blog posts throughout the summer to help families learn new information, anticipate changes and opportunities, and prepare for the upcoming school year.

Happy June!

Mrs. Ann Mitchell
