Building Plan for Hudsonville

future schoolFrom Mr. Nicholas Ceglarek, Superintendent

Last night, the Board of Education unanimously approved a recommendation on a future facility plan.  The plan calls for one Hudsonville High School with two buildings on the current 32nd Street campus (please see attached press release) .  The project includes:

*new 9 + building (new pool/auditorium) on 32nd/Allen Street
*new South Elementary School (Greenly Street)
*Converting Freshman Campus to Early Childhood Center
*Riley and Baldwin athletic site upgrades
*new transportation facility
*technology upgrades in all school buildings

The next step in the process is convincing Michigan Department of Treasury to support our plan.  If this happens (January), we will be placing the issue on the May 3rd ballot allowing the voters to decide.

We would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to all that have contributed to the process; staff, parents, business and community leaders, and students who provided input and guidance in the process that helped shape the recommendation.  Thank you to the Board of Education for having the vision to set the parameters, and the courage to move our district forward in this very important facility decision.

Long Range Planning: Hudsonville Public Schools

From the Superintendent’s Office:

District Long Range Planning

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.

Breakfast at Georgetown

BkfastDid you hear that we will be serving breakfast at Georgetown every morning?  This is a district wide initiative to make sure that all students are offered the opportunity to have access to a healthy meal at the beginning of each school day.

The program will be run by our current JEN/HUD Food Service group.  In addition to lunch, you have the ability to purchase a $1.25 breakfast for your child.  Students who fall under the free/reduced plan for lunch will also receive this benefit for breakfast.

Mrs. Cheri Stacey will run this program for us.  Once students arrive at school (8:30 am), they will enter the building through their grade level door.  After placing backpacks and jackets in lockers, they will walk to the cafeteria/MPR where Mrs. Stacey will greet them and get them settled in for breakfast.  At 8:50, students will be dismissed to their classrooms to start their learning day.

If you would like to put money in your child’s meal account (for breakfast or lunch) visit the JEN/HUD website. If you are in need of information about Free/Reduced Meal Plans, you can contact the JEN/HUD office through this site.
