ELA grade 4 - April 10 and 11
Math grade 3 - May 8 and 9
Math grade 4 - May 11 and 12
HOME AND SCHOOL ASSOCIATION
Thanks to all who came to our meeting last Thursday! Our next meeting will be held on January 5, 2023.
Jingle Bell Craft Fair
The Jingle Bell Fair will be happening this Saturday, December 10th from 9 - 12 a.m. in the school gym. While this is a fun event for families to attend with their children, we couldn’t make it happen without the help of volunteers! We are desperately in need of more people to help run craft booths during the fair, as well as help with setup and cleanup before and after the fair.
Are you planning to attend with your family? Would you or another member of your family be able to spend an hour helping out? Any bit of help is greatly appreciated! You can sign up for a volunteer spot here: bit.ly/mulreadyjinglebell
We greatly appreciate your help making Jingle Bell a success!
Coffee and Cocoa Staff Appreciation
We know you have ALOT going on this month, so we wanted to give you all a heads up. We are planning a special holiday breakfast for our wonderful Mulready staff on Wednesday, December 21st. We will be collecting donations of various breakfast beverages and food items, as well as some holiday treats. Look out for the Volunteer Signup List going out soon!
Spiritwear orders have started arriving and we love seeing all of the ways everyone is customizing their Mulready gear! There is always free shipping on all orders over $50 and from December 4-11, you can get 10% off select crew neck shirts. Visit www.mulreadyspiritwear.com for details.

TOYS FOR TOTS CHALLENGE
The Mulready Elementary School is having a Toys for Tots Drive beginning Monday, December 2nd until Monday, December 12th.
If the school collects at least 200 items each class will earn a surprise.
Members of the Hudson Fire and Police Department will be picking up the toys from Mulready and adding the toys to the items collected at the Hudson Fire Department and Police Station. Please consider donating a new unwrapped toy.
Thank you and Happy Holidays.
DECORATING TREES FOR WILDLIFE
The third and fourth grades braved the cold and wind and decorated the three new trees at the intersection in front of Brothers Pizza. With dark nights and winter upon us, the birds and other woodland creatures will need food to eat. So, Mrs. Westberg decided it would be nice if the students made peanut butter based, seed-covered ornaments for the trees. The reward for their efforts was pizza donated by Brothers Pizza.
Each week a student in Mrs. Calvanese's class and Mrs. Regh's class chooses an experiment. The student follows a format for a lab report and presents it to the class. The student then performs the experiment. This week, in Mrs. Regh's class, a girl showed how dry ice is made from carbon dioxide and how it reacts in water and with soap. A child in Mrs. Calvanese's class showed the chemical reaction between baking soda and vinegar.
PRE-K REGISTRATION INFORMATION
November 9, 2022
This introductory letter is to inform you of our programming and enrollment information for the Hudson Public Schools preschool program in the fall of 2023.
Hudson Public Schools and CHAPS, Inc. have partnered to offer a part-day inclusion preschool at The Hubert School. This part-day preschool program offers a variety of classes in six classrooms and schedules for children ages 2.9-5 years old. The morning session is held from 8:30-11:30, the afternoon session is held from 12:00-3:00. Transportation is not provided. For your reference, current class choices and tuition rates are at www.hudsonchaps.com, and information for the 2023-2024 school year will be available in March 2023.
In addition, we have a few spots available in the Farley Integrated Preschool and the Mulready Integrated Child Development Preschool programs. Each preschool has a four-day class that mixes 3 and 4 year old students together. Classes are held Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9:00 a.m.-11:40 a.m. Children must be 3 years of age by August 31, 2023 to be eligible. Transportation is not provided. Tuition is $2,305.00 and includes a non-refundable $65.00 deposit. Students will attend Kindergarten in their home district schools, which may be different from the preschool they attend.
The Hubert School, operated by CHAPS, Inc., conducts registration in March. This process is coordinated by the Hubert School. Registration forms, fees and all enrollment paperwork are completed with the Hubert School. If you have any questions about the CHAPS part day classes, please contact the Hubert School (978)567-6130 and ask for Mrs. Patulak or Sally@hudsonchaps.com
The Farley and Mulready Preschools are operated by Hudson Public Schools. Since there are a limited number of openings, Hudson Public Schools will conduct a lottery for interested parents on December 22, 2022.
The lottery is early to alleviate families’ concerns that they could lose a possible spot in the Hubert School if they do not get one of the few slots in the Farley or Mulready programs.
Lottery Process for Farley and Mulready Preschool:
Any family wishing to enroll their three or four year old child in the Farley or Mulready preschool program will need to enter the lottery which will be held on Wednesday, December 22, 2022 at 9:00 a.m. on the second floor of the Hudson Public Schools Administration Building located at 155 Apsley Street. Families will receive a letter within a couple of weeks of the lottery letting them know if they have a slot for September 2023 or are on the wait list.
Enclosed is a preschool lottery form for Farley and Mulready. To enter the preschool lottery, complete the attached form and mail it to Renee Graca, Student Services Office, Hudson Public Schools, 155 Apsley Street, Hudson, MA 01749. The deadline for lottery applications is 4:00 p.m. on December 20, 2022. Please do not send the $65.00 deposit with your lottery application. If you have any questions about Farley or Mulready, contact me at 978-567-6100 x-42118.
