WALK-A-THON Fundraiser! Trek for Tech!


This year’s annual Walk-a-thon is rapidly approaching. This year’s theme is to “Trek for Tech”. Our school goal is to raise $15,000 and focus on technology needs with the usage of funds. The Walk-a-thon is a our largest fundraiser of the year, and we would love to have every child participate in raising funds for the school.

A fundraising packet/envelope has already been sent home. Please consider helping us raise funds for classroom needs. The Walk-a-thon is taking place on Thursday, September 26, 2013 RAIN OR SHINE!

9:45 – 10:30 a.m.: Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd Grade

10:45 – 11:30 a.m.: 3rd, 4th and 5th Grade

All donation forms and money is due back to school on Monday, September 30, 2013.


Each student who raises $25 or more will receive a blue cowbell with the Eagles logo in late October.

The top money earners in the school get a pool party with Mrs. Reagan in May!

The top earning classroom will get a limo ride and lunch at Pizza Ranch!!!

The top earning student in each grade will get a pizza and desert lunch from Mrs. Reagan!

Other various prizes will also be awarded too.


If the entire school can raise $15,000 or more, Mr. Rob will take on Mr. Bowen, Mr. Kooiker, Mr. Bialochowski, and Mr. Gort in an epic sumo wrestling challenge for the school’s viewing pleasure!  Well now, THAT should be a motivator!!

Please help us reach our goal!!!



Go Eagles Go!! From Mrs. Bretz

Whether you cheer for Michigan, Michigan State or Notre Dame, one thing we ALL cheer for is

This week, 4th and 5th grade are studying anthems.
We began by playing a name-that-tune game of favorite college fight songs (even though some student fans insisted their ears were bleeding when we played the rival college song!!  To make it fair, I DID play both Michigan and Michigan State!!)

Then we all cheered together and learned the words to our very own Hudsonville Fight Song!
If you don’t know it, ask your child to teach it to you!


Go Hudsie High School
Plunge right through that line
With your colors flying,
we will cheer you all the time!  RAH RAH RAH

Go Hudsie High School
Fight for victory
Spread far the fame of our fair name
and GO YOU EAGLES win this game! 

We are continuing our discussion of anthems by celebrating the anniversary of the “Star Spangled Banner.”  We have learned a mini history lesson of how it was written and have played a few games to help us learn the words.  Go team USA!

Book Bags are coming home tonight :)


My wonderful 4th grade students learned today how we will be using our reading logs during the school year. Today they received a book bag and reading log. Every day they will be bringing home their book bag. Inside the bag will be their book and reading log. They will be reading the same book at school and at home.

Tonight, please have your 4th grader show you their book bag/reading log and explain what they need to fill in each time they read both at school and at home. It is the students’ responsibility to carry these materials to and from school every day.

Research shows the more reading the students do…the stronger readers they will become. The reading logs are a way for the students to see if they are using their reading time effectively; by keeping track of the amount of pages read in a certain time period.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Happy Reading! :)
