Dear Families in the Middle,

In case you hadn't heard, one of our very own Hudson Middle School students, Rebecca Tank, will be recognized this Saturday, August 20, in Waunakee (near Madison) as one of the top student composers in the state of Wisconsin! Rebecca competed in the Wisconsin School Music Association Composition Project and submitted an original musical composition titled, "The Quest for the Cookie Jar." We are so very proud of her and grateful her musical gifts are being honored!

Many thanks for the positive and helpful feedback on Registration Days! Each year, we hope your experience is a smooth one. Added changes such as online registration and Fee Pay are meant to be a convenience and we appreciate your patience as we work through the adjustment phase! Another thank you to the many parents who took a moment to e-mail and alert us that the schedule wasn't displaying. Your alert helped us locate an incorrect setting and correct the glitch Tuesday morning. More importantly, your messages were thoughtful and supportive. Thank you for your patience and for presuming positive intent!

A special shout out to Mrs. Diane Schofield, our Associate Principal taking the lead on schedules, and to Cheryl Engnes, our Registrar Administrative Assistant for the hours and hours of attention they've given to providing schedules that we hope do the following:
* Honor student choice in electives (8th grade)
* Create as small an advisory as possible for more personal attention
* Balance class sizes for maximum student support

From our HMS Parent Network Group: the HMS Spirit Wear Sale ends this Friday, August 19th, at 11:59 PMInfo and store link can be found on the HMS website under General Information and HMS Parent Group. Another way to access the HMS Spirit Wear store is to go directly to
Our HMS store is on the home page.  A second sale will be offered by our Parent Group during October conferences.  

These warm and humid summer days will quickly give way to cool and crisp autumn mornings. While Safeway finalizes bus routes (they're nearly finished!), teachers collaborate with teams to revise plans and make changes in their classroom set-up, and our custodial team works feverishly to complete moving, painting, and repairing projects...we wish your family lovely days of anticipation this August!
