The Hudson City School District is excited to partner with Co-Host once again to provide students with activities, information on local programs and opportunities to connect with each other and their community at lunch time. The program will kick off on October 11 when Bryan Zimmerman from Columbia-Greene Tobacco-Free Action attends grades 6-8 lunches in conjunction with “Seen Enough Tobacco Day” on Friday October 13. Mr. Zimmerman plans to have a “Jeopardy” game with prizes (in the form of Welch’s Fruit Snacks, sunglasses, bracelets, and frisbees); an informative flyer, and opportunities to participate in art projects and story sharing related to Big Tobacco’s marketing tactics and how nicotine and tobacco have impacted one’s family, community, environment and health.

Starting Wednesday October 18, Operation Unite plans to table weekly for all three lunches with items representing different cultures such as books and games. Starting October 25, Harmony Project Hudson will also be tabling weekly for all three lunch periods with youth activities and program information.

We can’t wait to welcome our community partners to our district! More information can be found online at
