The Hudson School District honored many of its teachers and staff at its annual Staff Recognition Banquet Monday, April 29 at the Hudson House Grand Hotel. Teachers who have served 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35 and 45 years were honored, as were this year's retirees. Superintendent Nick Ouellette thanked the teachers for their service, saying their hard work is essential to the district's success.
Students at Hudson Prairie recently participated in their annual Pennies for Patients campaign, raising money for children with leukemia and lymphoma. As an incentive to reach their goal, teachers and staff volunteered to have their hair shaved off as various amounts were raised. Teachers William Schaub, Nicholas DeMoulin, and Hudson Prairie Principal Joe Behnke shaved off beards and hair as students not only met their goal, but exceeded it. The students and staff at Hudson Prairie raised over $2638.81 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
