Announcements for clubs run daily at the beginning of school at least a week prior to their beginning.

Ambassadors of Hope

Hudson Memorial School's anti-bullying organization, "Ambassadors of Hope," is now accepting applications for the 2018 -19 school year. Ambassadors of Hope was started by an Alvirne High School graduate, Kameo Lelievre, in 2010, in an effort to address bullying in our schools.

The group strives to make HMS a place where everyone feels safe and accepted and gains a sense of belonging. Bullying is not tolerated at HMS through the support of Ambassadors of Hope. The group also sponsors events throughout the year spreading the message of tolerance and acceptance.

Applications can be found in the School Counseling Office.
