Scavenger Hunt

Attached is a scavenger hunt created by our Hudson Welcome Committee.  You are welcome to complete this while you are in the building next week for conferences (a table will be set up near our main entrance) or during another time when you are here!


Hudson Motto

Hudson families,  in support of our vision work (Hudson Elementary School is a community of independent thinkers who pursue their passions in a joyful learning environment.) we are talking with students and staff to create a Hudson Motto.  This motto will be reflective of our core beliefs.  We would appreciate your input during this process.  Please visit the link provided to add your input by August 29th.

Conference Babysitting: 

During Jumpstart Conferences 5th graders and their parents will be providing babysitting in the Atrium area. Coloring books and games will be available to entertain. This also serves as an opportunity for our 5th graders to raise money to off-set the cost of Camp Wyman, which they will be attending in 6th grade. Bring your kiddos while you attend conferences and please consider donating to our 5th graders. 


Teacher Meals: Jumpstart Conferences

During Jumpstart Conferences PTO provides meals for our teachers to enjoy. This year we will be catering the main dishes but need additional volunteers to bring items to fill in the side dishes, drinks, and snack items. We will need items for both Wednesday, August 28th and Thursday, August 29th. Thank you for your support!

To Sign Up:


If you are wanting to help but just don't have the time, we do accept donations via PayPal  to Even small donations of $3-$5 help. Thank you!


Dine Out

Help support our schools by enjoying Lunch or Dinner at El Indio Mexican Restaurant. 9865 Manchester Rd., Rock Hill.  It's a busy time of year so why not enjoy a break from the kitchen(maybe a margarita) and help raise money for the PTO.  It could be just right if it's a busy night with Jumpstart Conferences. Just tell your server at checkout that you are part of the Hudson Family. 10% of the "Hudson Family" profits will be donated from the entire day.


PTO Buzz Book

PTO will be collating our annual Buzz Book will be coming out in early September. This is a place where student contact information is shared (name, address, phone, parents’ names). This is only shared with parents at Hudson, however, if you do NOT want a portion or all of your information shared please notify Stephanie Margolis at
