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.
On the evening of December 19th the Dr. H.O. Smith gym was transformed into an express train headed for the North Pole. Many 1st Grade students and their parents were treated to a special reading of the Polar Express, complete with guest narrator and conductor, as well as a special appearance by Santa. After the reading, everyone gathered in the cafeteria to enjoy hot cocoa and cookies. Thank you to our school counselor Christal Fitzgerald whose time and effort, along the support of Mr. Lane, Dr. H.O. Smith staff and PTO members, made this magical event possible.
Dr. H.O. Smith School’s holiday concerts saw hundreds of doting parents enjoy a taste of the holiday season. All the 1st grade students performed in a day, afternoon, and night performance in an effort to provide a time for all our parents, relatives, and friends to share in this special event. The gymnasium was filled to capacity throughout the day/night with everyone eager to see the children perform. The students were extremely excited to be in front of such a large group of people and could hardly contain their excitement. The students performed a variety of songs that delighted the audience. A special thanks to all the students and the music teacher, Susan Parsons, for putting together a fabulous program.
The Early Learning Center’s annual holiday craft fair took place on December 14th. We had a nice turnout, as always. We want to thank all who had the opportunity to stop by for shopping, purchasing raffle tickets or just taking time out to say “HELLO” to Santa. The gym was filled with a steady stream of merry friends and families, as holiday music played in the background. There were local vendors and crafters this year selling goods such as American Girl clothing, jewelry, painted artwork, hair accessories, scrapbooking items, and so much more! What a wonderful way to spend time with your family. Thank you to Heidi England for coordinating the craft fair, you did a fantastic job, as well as all the volunteers that worked that day. It was because of you that this event a huge success!
