Children’s book author, Matt Tavares, visited on March 26th. He spoke to all our classes about his work, the writing and illustration process, and his books. The students really enjoyed hearing about how Matt became a writer/illustrator, as well as how ideas become the books they find in their classrooms every day.
Representatives from Dr. Todd’s Dental Office came to Dr. H.O. Smith School to talk about dental hygiene to all the first grade students. Discussion topics were how to properly brush teeth and use floss, why it is so important to stay away from those additional sugar sources and how to keep teeth and gums healthy for a lifetime. This talk aligned with our goal of providing practical information to our students that will benefit them throughout their lives.
On March 3rd, a representative from the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society visited to talk to all the students about the fundraiser PENNIES FOR PATIENTS. She gave a visual demonstration, using student volunteers, on what blood cancers are and how they are cured. She also explained how this fundraiser will fund blood cancer research into the future, as well as provides education and patient services.
Thank you to our school community for their support of this worthwhile fundraiser.
Students at Dr. H.O. Smith and Library Street Schools recently participated in a weeklong celebration of the birthday of Dr. Seuss which is also known as READ ACROSS AMERICA. Students participated in themed days: Monday- Crazy Hair Day: Here’s a chance to wear your hair like a Who! Do something different than your normal do. Tuesday- Red, White, and Black Day: I know it sounds a little crazy to say, but our whole school is going to try and match today. Wednesday- Wacky Wednesday: You don’t want to match today; you can look like a mess. I want to see your silliest outfit not your prettiest dress. Thursday- Crazy Sock Day: Our normal socks are usually just plain old white! Wear ones today that are maybe tall, colorful, ice and bright! Friday- Pajama Day: The Cat and the Hat came during a storm. Wear something today that is nice and warm! Students also received book marks and pencils, took part in a bookmark design contest, a book swap and were read to by guests from the community who were invited to come in to school.
Students and staff would like to express their gratitude to our guest readers from the community. It is such a pleasure that so many are willing to give of their time to the students of Hudson. We would also like to THANK our Reading Specialist, Elaine Yen, for organizing the week.
The students at Library Street School celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday on the night of March 4th. Students, along with their families, enjoyed listening to some favorite Dr. Seuss books read by Mr. Baker (he actually dressed as the Cat in the Hat) and Mrs. Labrie. After story time, everyone enjoyed some crafts and birthday cake. It was a fun time for all.

If your child will be five on or before September 30, 2014, it is time to start preparing for their first day of kindergarten! Parents should begin the registration process at home by logging on to the Hudson School District website (www.sau81.org) prior to attending in-person registration. Your completed paperwork will be waiting for you when you come on March 6th, March 13th, or March 25th. Computers will also be available at in-person registration if that is more convenient for you. If you have already opened a “family account” online, you need to “add a child”.
We will also be registering new first graders! For first grade, children must be six years old by September 30, 2014. If you wish to register a child in grades 2-5, please contact the school in your zone to make an appointment to register at any time. Students currently enrolled in the Hudson School District kindergarten program or 1st grade do not need to register.
When you attend in-person registration, please bring along your child’s birth certificate, a copy of your child’s immunization records, and a proof of residence (current property tax bill, lease agreement, etc.) Please note that a driver’s license or utility bill is not an acceptable proof of residence. Your child does not need to be present during registration, but are welcome to come along.
Staff members, including the School Nurse and School Counselor, will be available at registration to help answer your questions. We can’t wait to meet you and welcome you to our school community! If you have any questions in the meantime, contact the School Counseling Department.
