Each year, Hudson PTO provides HCSD staff the oppportunity to apply for grants in our Fall and Spring Grants programs.  These grants are funded by you – the parents, teachers, and students of Hudson who join PTO each year, buy Spirit Wear, support our Rewards programs and events such as the Pancake Breakfast and Run For the Schools. Just take a look below at some of the fantastic items PTO has granted for Hudson schools throughout the years!
