Student Council is participating in Project Night Light with Helen DeVos Childrens' Hospital on Wednesday, December 14th.
In coordination with that event, our students didn't want to go empty handed, so we are showing Elf on Tuesday, December 6th at the Eagle Auditorium at 7:00. We are asking that as admission you bring in a toy from the high need list put out by HDCH.

The kids are very excited to present their concert to you! They have been working very, very hard on their songs! We are now working on our final preparations; things like lineup orders, final song fine tuning, motions and logistics!
You may also hear your child talking about the numbers they have on their songs. I keep track of the progress of classes using a number chart. When a class reaches a 10 on a particular song that means that song is ready for the Program! Some classes have 10s already!
You should have received a communication from the office regarding final Holiday Program instructions.
The date for the Holiday Program is December 13. We will again be at FairHaven Church. Lower Elementary will begin at 6:30 (with a 6:15 call time) and Upper Elementary will begin at 7:45 (7:30 call time).
Please note that in all of the Hudsonville Public Elementary Schools, PreK students do not participate in the Holiday Program.
Please let me know if you have any questions!

Please check out our website for important information on Health Services.
In order for your child to take any medication (prescription and non-prescription) at school, a MEDICATION FORM is required. If your child requires a prescription medication (asthma inhaler, EPI pen, insulin), your physician must complete a portion of the form. The medication forms are available in the school office and will be posted to our website.
Please do not send medications to school with your child. Please come into the office to drop off medications. Thank you!
