Dear Families in the Middle,
July seems to be the fastest month of the summer! Suddenly we're talking registration, school supplies, and back-to-school schedules. Online registration opened Monday, July 18. You will find this link helpful as you anticipate Registration Days at HMS. Please don't hesitate to call us (Tasia, Cheryl, Trevor, Diane and Ann) with questions!
Message and invitation from our Parent Group leaders:
Our Hudson Middle School Parent Group (HMSPG) is looking for volunteers to help during Registration Days, so please consider signing up for a shift!   Come join the fun in welcoming parents and students to a new school year.  Assist at the HMS Parent Group Information Table with the following tasks: 
* distribute School Supply Kits to those who ordered
* invite parents to join our email list
* collect orders for Locker organization units from Locker Works
* highlight our NEW Hudson Spirit Wear (samples and ordering info will be available).
We hope to have 2 volunteers for each shift; however, we understand if you can only come for part of a shift.  Additionally, let's try to cover the 6th grade registration day first (August 10th) as we want to fully assist all of the new students and parents.
NO experience or past HMSPG involvement is needed, just your fun and outgoing personality!   We'll have all the information you need.  
Questions:  please contact Anne Wasmund via this link: Sign Up Genius 
Thank you for your help!

Dear Families in the Middle,

We're nearing approval of conceptual plans for the middle school addition! The addition will help us...
...create houses and advisories with fewer total students
...include students with special education needs in each house to strengthen our learning community
...provide a home-base classroom for teachers who have previously "traveled" from house to house

Have you marked your calendar with our HMS Registration Days?
Monday, August 8 - 8th grade
Tuesday, August 9 - 7th grade
Wednesday, August 10 - 6th grade

Please add to your calendar our first HMS American Red Cross Blood Drive! Thanks to the initiative of Gabe Wolf and his mother Teresa, we are hosting a blood drive Tuesday, August 9, 4 - 8 PM in our multi-purpose room. Here's a message from Gabe encouraging us to contribute. I've already signed up to give a pint at 6:45 PM.

I'm Gabe Wolf, from Hudson, WI. I'm the blood drive coordinator for American Red Cross Blood Drive. I'm working towards my Eagle Scout Project. Please e-mail me and help donate on August 9, from4:00-8:00 P.M. Please call me at 715-441-7698, or send me an e-mail at to confirm a time. Thank you.
The need for blood is constant and only volunteer donors can fulfill that need for patients in our community. Nationwide, someone needs a unit of blood every 2 to 3 seconds and most of us will need blood in our lifetime.
Thank you for supporting the American Red Cross blood program!

Dear Families in the Middle,

Such spectacular weather for our summer work and play! We'll keep this message brief so you can get back outdoors and enjoy the fresh air, warm sunshine and nature's bounty!

Our new district website is READY! Please check it out and offer feedback via e-mail or a comment on this blog post.

We are hopeful this will be your one stop shop for registration details, communication and updates, and information from your child's advisor and teachers.

Please mark your calendar with our HMS REGISTRATION Days:
6th Grade - Wednesday, August 10 - 10:30 AM - 6 PM
7th Grade - Tuesday, August 9 - 10:30 AM - 6 PM
8th Grade - Monday, August 8 - 10:30 AM - 6 PM

Each family will be receiving registration information by e-mail during July. The e-mail will include registration links and information, including house and advisor assignments.

Our HMS Parent Group has also been planning for the coming year. Thanks to their suggestions, you will see positive changes in our Registration Day details!

We hope you and your family enjoy Hudson Booster Days, Fourth of July family gatherings and/or the middle month of summer with gusto!
