Appleseed is our district newsletter. Each month, Superintendent Nick Ceglarek opens with a message to parents and the community. This is followed by short articles featuring student learning in our eleven buildings across the district.
Georgetown’s feature article highlights our recycling of plastics and paper.

*NOTE: Two PTC meetings per year are held during the day to address parent requests for those who cannot attend our other 3-4 evening meetings during the year.
Our featured speaker for the March 10 meeting is Mr. Nick Ceglarek, our Superintendent. This meeting will be held at 10 am in the MPR. Mr. Ceglarek will speak about the upcoming bond proposal and building projects—in addition to answering questions about the district strategic plan.
Throughout the 2010-2011 school year, Hudsonville Public School staff will be gathering community data to help guide the district’s long range strategic plan. Parents, students, and community residents may be asked to participate in focus groups and surveys. The purpose of this community research is to identify Hudsonville Public Schools strengths and areas of focus.
Gathering the input of our community will also make certain the district core mission continues to be aligned with our greater community.
More information regarding this process can be found at our district’s website. Thank you in advanced for your assistance in this process.
On March 16, our superintendent Nick Ceglarek will be presenting to our PTC. Mr. Ceglarek will be sharing the current goals for our district, including dealing with the challenges in state funding and planning for the upcoming building projects that are designed to accommodate our increasing enrollment.
This would be an excellent meeting to attend, providing you with first hand information about the district initiatives. The meeting will be held in the media center at 7 pm.
We would like to extend a warm welcome to our new superintendent, Nick Ceglarek. He has been the superintendent of Fruitport Community Schools for the past five years. An article featured in the Muskegon Chronicle outlines Mr. Ceglarek’s successes during his time with the Fruitport Community School District.
Mr. Ceglarek will be replacing Roxanne DeWeerd, our superintendent for the past eight years. Mrs. DeWeerd ended her career in Hudsonville as the Michigan Superintendent of the Year! This was an incredible honor and one that she deserved fully. Mrs. DeWeerd served as our leader for all of us–setting progressive goals that focused on student learning. To thank her for all that she has done, Georgetown created a tribute video which was shared at our April 2009 PTC meeting.
We wish Mrs. DeWeerd a happy, adventure filled retirement and at the same time welcome Mr. Ceglarek to our district filled with caring parents, bright students, progressive teachers and administrators, and a supportive community.
This past Tuesday evening, Georgetown (parents, students and staff) honored our superintendent, Roxanne DeWeerd. She is currently the Michigan Superintendent of the Year–a title she well deserves. In addition, she is retiring in June. To celebrate her leadership, we created this video. Enjoy!
