THANK YOU to all the generous families here at Hudson Prairie you have truly made this year's Giving Tree a huge success.  The collections this year were amazing, with everything that as donated we filled 2 cars/trunks.

Hour of Code this week at Hudson Prairie

We live in a world surrounded by technology.  And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and fewer students are studying it than a decade ago. That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 8-14). Last year, 15 million students tried computer science in one week. This year, we're joining students worldwide to reach 100 million students!  Our Hour of Code is a statement that Hudson Prairie is ready to teach these foundational 21st century skills. To continue bringing programming activities to your students, we want to make our Hour of Code event huge. I encourage you to volunteer, reach out to local media, share the news on your social media channels and consider hosting additional Hour of Code events in the community. This is a chance to change the future of education in Hudson, WI.  Ask your children about this.  Thank you to Mrs. Elliot for leading this.  Please watch the video ​Hour of Code Kick-Off Video

See http://hourofcode.com/us for details, and help spread the word.

Speak Up, a national online research project facilitated by Project Tomorrow®, gives individuals the opportunity to share their viewpoints about key educational issues, particularly concerning 21st century education and technology. Each year, findings are summarized and shared with national and state policy makers. Participating schools and districts can access their data online, free-of-charge in February 2015.  Please share your ideas by taking the appropriate survey at:  http://www.speakup4schools.org/speakup2014/ .  Thank you!
