I hope you’ve been enjoying your summer!
We’ve been very busy here at school. They gym and cafeteria floors are the last to be waxed. The gym looks amazing after the renovations that were done this summer! The new middle school furniture is in – thanks to the many volunteers that showed up this last Saturday for the “I Got Time” event. The furniture was assembled and also delivered to the classrooms. Those classrooms were also repainted and new counter tops installed! I can’t wait for you to see the building!
We also have our new writing curriculum, updates to our K-5 Eureka Math program, and new health textbooks!
Our Back to School Teacher In-Service includes Responsive Classroom training. From their website: “Responsive Classroom is an evidence-based approach to education that focuses on the strong relationship between academic success and social-emotional learning. The Responsive Classroom approach empowers educators to create safe, joyful, and engaging learning communities where all students have a sense of belonging and feel significant.” A number of years ago the school adopted the PBIS (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports) model. Responsive Classroom and PBIS go hand-in-hand. We are looking forward to this next step and learning more about how to best support our students!
I would also like to take this time to announce and welcome Mrs. Audrey Johnson who is joining Mrs. Wagner in Kindergarten. This addition was due to an increase in Kindergarten enrollment. Mrs. Johnson is newer to the Hudson community and was teaching in the Stillwater school system. Welcome Mrs. Johnson!
Also due to enrollment increase we are in need of a morning Preschool Aide. This position is scheduled for 7:00 am to Noon, Monday – Friday. If you are interested or know of anyone interested, please have them contact me by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 715-386-3941.
