At Hudson Prairie, we would like to emphasize the Gift of Giving to those less fortunate than us.  Because of this, we are asking once again for students to donate for our Giving Tree.  Each grade level will be asking for certain items, which is listed below.  Please bring your donations to the class teacher by December 11th. We will be giving them to Grace Place at our all school meeting.  Together we can make a difference here in our community.

From the Prinicipal

Welcome to the Hudson Prairie web site which will help you get to know our wonderful school community.  We are so proud of all of the learning and fun we have at Hudson Prairie.  Our district and school vision is HSD 2025.

 Preparing each student for post-secondary success through a culture of excellence in:
        challenging academics
        critical thinking
        purposeful collaboration
        applied innovation
        global stewardship
Challenging students and graduates to become informed, caring contributors.

I am so proud of our students who are all growing as learners in math, reading, writing, and the content areas.  Thank you to our families for their partnership in their child's education.  Please feel free to stop by or call me with any questions or concerns.  Together we can help all students learn at high levels!
