Dear Families in the Middle,

This morning several girls in 6th, 7th and 8th grade were able to participate in a Girls in STEM & Manufacturing Breakfast, thanks to a collaborative effort of several folks! Sponsored and funded by the The Wisconsin Womens Council, the event was planned and coordinated by Ms. Melisa Hanson, Hudson School District Career & Technical Education Coordinator, Jodie Bray, Engineering and Technology Teacher here at HMS, and many women in the manufacturing industry. Students had the opportunity to work in teams to create a useable tool from recyclable materials, weld virtually and manually, use a laser and metal bit engraver, and a robotic arm. Breakfast was prepared and served by our Family & Consumer Science students. Lieutenant Governor Kleefisch, a mother of two middle school girls, shared the message, "We're investing in you. Invest in yourself and apply your learning. You are Wisconsin's future and we're counting on you!"

For photos of the STEM event and to see more great things happening at HMS every day (Thanks to Mr. Brian Nadeau, our Dean of Students), please follow HMS on Twitter by using @hudsonmiddlewi! 

We hope to see many of you at our FALL PARENT SEMINAR Tuesday evening, October 25, 6:30 - 8 PM. Back by popular demand, Alison Feigh will provide all of us (including students) with tips and strategies to safeguard our online footprint. We'll be meeting in the Multi-Purpose Room, so parking in the north lot (near Prairie Elementary) is probably best for this evening seminar. 

In case you missed the website photo of our Groundbreaking last week, Tuesday, October 18, these are a few of our Student Leaders on the Learning Space Team. Several were able to meet with Bray Architects Tuesday morning to learn more about their careers.

We are very grateful for the strong and positive community support for quality education and for expanding and strengthening our middle school House concept with the addition of learning space. The construction process will be a learning experience for so many of our students and staff! Opportunities to re-establish green space and a garden area east of the track near the pavilion, for re-thinking our use of space, color, and lighting and their impact on learning, and for innovating in our instructional practices will enhance this learning community!
Mrs. Ann Mitchell
