Spring Break Letter to Families and Staff.docx

April 6th, 2023

Dear Hudson City School District Faculty, Staff, and Families,

It provides me great joy to wish you and your loved ones a happy and safe April Break! I hope you all take the time to enjoy your precious time together, whether it’s on a planned vacation or recharging from home.

We are coming off the heels of a very successful Saturday Academy that was held on April 1st. The addition of a “Bubble Bus” and new vendors was a hit! We look forward to sharing details on our next Saturday Academy for scholars and their parents/guardians soon!

In the classroom, our scholars have been elevating the standard for achievement due in part to their determination to succeed and the comprehensive instruction from our amazing staff of dedicated professionals. New York State Seal of Biliteracy presentations in the Senior High School, several assemblies engaging our Junior High Schoolers to be collaborative and kind and a Spelling Bee at the Elementary School come to mind as recent big events held in our district. We are grateful for the teachers and staff that help make all of this happen. 

Outside of the classroom, our art, music, sports, and theater programs have all been performing at a high level, and it’s been an entertaining pleasure to soak it all in! We are excited to soak in the intensity of our Spring sports matchups, passion and creativity of the arts and the debut of “Mean Girls” the musical on April 28th.

Our crew of amazing members in administration and in the district office have been crucial to the district’s daily operation and behind-the-scenes work, as we prepare the 2023-24 school year budget. We will have the full proposal to reveal in the coming weeks!

From an ethical and moral standpoint, the district has been persistent in its reinforcement of #HudsonHasHeart and in improving the culture of our school district. By taking in public and internal input as well as conducting unbiased focused groups to see where we can find improvement, I am confident we are on the right track of sustaining a healthy learning environment.

We look forward to seeing students, faculty and staff back in-district on Monday, April 17th!
