  • Friday, 10/27-7-9 PM-Haunted Hudson!  Thanks to all the parents, faculty and students for really coming together for what we know will be an amazing community building event.  And scary too!  If you are donating decorations for the students to use in the backyard, please drop off no sooner than 10/26, (in the ,AM) so that the front office isn’t overloaded all week with decorations. If your student would like to help decorate the backyard for the event, please have them reach out to  Kim Woolfer and/or Chris Baker. The students will start decorating right after school on Friday 10/26 until we start  haunting at 7 PM! Thanks to all the parents who volunteered.  See attached list to remind everyone what you have signed up for.  Those that offered to set up please arrive by 6 pm. We can’t wait to see all the costumes!  If anyone has an extra folding table they are willing to bring we may need a few more.  Reach out to us at this email if you plan to bring.    Special thanks to Sonia Puri and Chris Baker for organizing the costume contest which didn’t make it to this final list :). Yes, there will be a contest, so break out those amazing costumes!
