A Few Reminders

Greetings Parents;
Below are some reminders:
•  This evening at 7:00pm our Natural Horsemanship students will be putting on a demonstration for the public (at the riding arena).  Admission is $5.00.  There will be pony rides available for $2.00  Please be very careful when parking/walking to the entrance as conditions are very slippery.
•  If you completed a hot lunch order, this Friday (Jan 20th) is “hot lunch day”.
•  Jan 23-26 is “exam week”.  I’ve sent out a schedule (and have attached another to this email).
•  Jan 27 and 30 are Non-Instructional Days (classes are not in session).
•  I’ve had a lot of folks asking when we are doing a Cruisin’ Day to Powder King.  There will be one (possibly two) the 3rd/4th weekend of February.

School Buses Not Running Today.

The School District has released the following statement:
“Due to the icy road conditions from freezing rain, SD60 has cancelled school buses for Wednesday, January 18, 2017.  School will remain open”.
It appears at this time that the afternoon run is included in the cancellation.  If that changes an update will be provided.

Natural Horsemanship Demonstration

Our HHESS Natural Horsemanship class will be presenting a demonstration of our skills to the public next Wednesday, January 18th. The show will start at 7:00 PM, at the indoor riding arena. There will be a concession and door prizes, and admission will be $5 per person, children under 6 admitted free. The first part of our show will be a demonstration explaining how working with your horse on the ground can help communication while riding. Several of our students will display their skill in different activities, including side passing and jumping. We will break for a short intermission, during which time the door prizes will be drawn. The second part of our show will be a “two-ring” affair: half of the arena will be reserved for pony rides for audience members at $2 per ride (helmets provided), while the other half will be a competitive demonstration where our students will attempt to complete an obstacle course in as little time as possible. This event is the first of its kind in Hudson’s Hope, and the students are very excited to show you what they’ve learned. We hope to see you there! Please do not bring dogs.


Thank you Progress Energy!

On behalf of the staff and students of Hudson’s Hope School, I would like to recognize and thank Progress Energy for supporting our Healthy Snacks Program.  During the 2014-2015 school year, Progress Energy donated $6800.00 to this program, enabling us to provide healthy fruits and vegetables EVERY DAY to keep our school energized!  In addition, students were also able to provide healthy eating lessons, and teach food preparation to a variety of age levels.  This program would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsor.  Thank you Progress Energy!
