READ ACROSS AMERICA: 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 VACATION Bingo filled with literacy activities, 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.
Each student who participated in VACATION Bingo and the book mark contest earned a certificate of participation and one lucky winner from each classroom received a book. Each winning book mark was featured in the school lobby until the end of the month. 72 books were placed into the hands of students during this week alone. Congratulations to all!

On March 14th, we held our fifth annual Multicultural Night. This night was a chance to celebrate the diversity found throughout Zone A and to bring our many cultures together. There was a wide variety of foods served, from spaghetti and meatballs and corned beef and cabbage, to chicken fried rice and traditional foods from Kazakhstan. Many guest (and staff) enjoyed getting Henna paintings (tradition from India) and listening to poetry readings from several of our 5th grade students. The food and art, coupled with great conversation made for a very enjoyable night for all. We also would like to thank the guest readers; Superintendent Bryan Lane, retired teacher Rosanne Empey, Assistant Superintendent Phyllis Schlichter, and Student Resource Officer Jim Stys.
On Friday, May 10, 2013 the fifth graders of Dr. H.O. Smith School along with parents, teachers, Trout Unlimted, NH Fish & Game, and the Hudson Police Department walked to the Merrimack River to release 200 salmon fry. The walk was the end of a fun learning experience that has covered the past 2 months. Fifth graders watched the salmon hatch from eggs provided by the Nashua National Fish Hatchery. The walk to the river and the release of the fry was enjoyed by all who participated. Thank you to Trout Unlimited for providing the "chiller" so we could maintain the cool tank temperatures required for helathy salmon fry. Thank you to Judy Tumosa and NH Fish & Game for their continued support of this great program. And lastly we would like to thank Officer Colby Morton of the Hudson Police Department for her awesome assitance as we crossed the busy streets on the way to the river. As you walk on the banks of the Merrimcak River or drive across the bridges that span its' shores remember to keep the Merrimack River healthy so our salmon fry contniue to have a healthy home.
