Flashlight Fridays

Flashlight Fridays were a big hit during March!  The students were asking daily if it was “Flashlight Friday” yet?  They enjoyed reading by themselves, with partners and with our 2nd grade Reading Buddies.

Art Show

Here is a message from our art teacher, Mrs. Nienhouse:
The annual Hudsonville Public Schools Art Show is coming soon!  Over 800 pieces of artwork created by students in grades PK-12 will be on display at the Hudsonville City Hall from April 23-May 1, 2018.  If your child’s work is in the show, you will receive an invitation soon, although everyone is invited to come and check out the awesome artwork!
The show is open for viewing daily from 8am-5pm, in the lower level of the City Hall.  Artist receptions are held each weekday evening (M-Th) from 5:30-7:30 p.m.  South’s Artist Reception will be on Tuesday, May 1st.  This is our school’s “big night” at the Art Show, yet feel free to head to the show at a time that is most convenient for you.  We look forward to a great turn-out to celebrate the hard work and creativity of our young artists!

Newenhouse News 4.9.18

Welcome back from Spring Break!  I hope you all enjoyed some time away from school and were able to have fun with your friends and families.  I spent the week in Florida enjoying some fun in the sun, and it was in the 80s every day.  To be honest, it was hard to come home to the cold weather again.  I’m hoping spring gets here soon!!   I look forward to seeing all my Kinders bright, cheery smiles again tomorrow morning!

Here is the newsletter for this week:


Have a good week!
