If you have not placed your yearbook order please do so ASAP.    Please print out a paper receipt (one for EACH student), send a check for $17 payable to Hudson Prairie PTO and send it to school with your child.  You can also click on the link Yearbook  to order online with a credit card payment.  Please direct any questions to Christine Pytleski at #715-441-2429  ~or~  christinepytleski@yahoo.com.
