News From the Office…

Coloring pages went home with grades 1st through 4th. If your child wants to color the page and send it back, they are due by Oct. 28. It is a contest that the City of Hudsonville puts on every year. They will pick winners from each grade and the winners will get to ride on the Holiday Trolley in the Hudsonville parade on November 23. Any coloring pages submitted will be displayed throughout town.

Remember if you are volunteering for a party or anything else, you have to fill out a volunteer background check. It can be found under the tab at the top of this page. This has to be done every year! Please allow time to get them complete and checked before the parties are here. This process takes a few days! Thank you!!

Last but not least, THANK YOU to everyone for showing your support to our school! From Walk A Thon donations to coming to Culver’s night, all of it is so appreciated!! We are very lucky to have the support we do!

ArtPrize art project help and donations! Can you help us?

We are looking for people who are willing to donate time and materials for our students’ upcoming 2020 ArtPrize entry. In 2017, Hudsonville Public Schools’ students won their category and we are going to enter again next year! If you or someone you know would be willing to donate wooden boards to our school, we need 1X4 and 2×4 (untreated) primed or unprimed boards. We also need someone to cut these boards down to 6 inch lengths. Each student at our school in grades K-5 will be creating artwork on their own board which will be joined together with our other K-12 Hudsonville Public Schools student artworks!
If you can donate boards or cut boards for us (we need 600+ pieces for our school alone) could you please email Meagan Chmura (our art teacher) at Thanks so much!
ALSO..  we need parent permission for each student to participate in ART PRIZE 2020. Click here to fill out the permission survey.
