Well, the 2017-2018 school year is now in the books! It was a stellar year of accomplishments and achievements for our students! We’ll have more on that in the coming weeks as we take time to reflect on the year that was.
The highlight of this last week is always Pirate Term as it gives our students the opportunity to experience content and courses they may not otherwise have access to. Today was the culminating event where students shared with one another what they learned and experienced during the week. This truly is a unique activity to our students in Hudson and one that is looked forward to every year. Following the Pirate Term showcase, students were treated to a cookout that has become an annual tradition.
Yesterday was the deadline for contracts to be turned in, and I am very pleased with the results. We did have two late resignations and have subsequently posted those positions and hope to have them filled in short order. One additional employee does have until June 11th to turn a contract in, but nevertheless we are sitting in a very good spot. The fact we are entering the summer with only two open positions is impressive and better than we were one year ago! (For more details on these resignations, please refer to the dropbox.)
I am sharing two photos with you this afternoon. In this first photo, you will see the high school faculty gathered around the serving table following lunch this afternoon. They look quite happy! The photo below is a bit of tradition as it has the elementary staff gathering to wave goodbye to the students as they depart one final time, bringing closure to the 2017-2018 school year.
One final note before signing off: the general contractor did arrive first thing this morning and begin the mobilization process. They have been in and out most of the day and we turned the wing over to them at 2:00. Demolition begins Monday!
Have a great weekend!
Dr. Anthony D. Voss, Superintendent
