As most of you are aware, we have been using parent/guardian e-mail addresses to send home progress reports/report cards, and school notices. The Hudson Memorial School has converted our student database into a contact database which allows us to send/collect information through secure e-mails. In December 2013, we e-mailed our first online form home to start collecting student demographic information/updates through a secure server. Going forward, we will be using e-mail address for our yearly student demographic information updates, athletics and field trip permission forms as well.
In an effort to collect as many student update forms as possible through e-mail, we are encouraging you to check your junk mail items as we still have approximately 200 outstanding update forms with what appears to be valid e-mails addresses.
If you change your e-mail address please e-mail Kathy Baronas with your student's name at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can capture your new/updated e-mail address(s) electronically.
We appreciate your time and assistance in this matter.
The Hudson Memorial School Merit System is designed to acknowledge the positive contributions students and staff make to the school's culture through a set of core values that focuses on the key components of a student's social, emotional, and academic growth. This system will allow us to develop working relationships that promote, sustain, and reward students and staff for their respectful and responsible behaviors, as well as, their hard work and dedication. It will challenge our students and staff to reach their personal best in both academic and non-academic settings on a daily basis.
The Student Council, with approval of administration, is sponsoring a fundraiser in which eligible students will be able to participate in an iPod Study Hall. We are planning on offering this incentive each quarter to encourage students to be hardworking, responsible and respectful HMS students. Students with passing grades in all subjects for the current quarter, parental permission, and who purchase an iPod Study Hall pass for each current quarter will be allowed to listen to iPods and mp3 players during study hall for one week.
The second iPod study will be the week of March 3-7. Rules and Parental Permission Form

C.O.L.T. Time is an acronym that stands for Connecting Our Learning Together and it is Memorial School's version of an Advisory program. According to the researchers for the National Middle School Association, a Middle School Advisory Program is defined as an arrangement whereby one adult and a small group of students have an opportunity to interact on a scheduled basis in order to provide a caring environment for academic guidance and support, recognition, and activities to promote citizenship.
At Hudson Memorial School, C.O.L.T. Time serves to improve relationships and strengthen our community by building positive, healthy connections as well as the skills necessary to improve student achievement and promote citizenship through a system of support for students, parents and staff. The teachers and staff at Hudson Memorial believe that this program is critical to capture and engage at-risk learners, will build a culture in school centered on kids and team, and the valuable connections and relationships made through C.O.L.T. Time will improve student achievement. For more information click here.
