Welcome to the final Talking Tigers of 2023! Before you depart for our Holiday Recess, I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone in our Hudson Falls Central School District community for making this year great. This school year, our community has come together to give help to those who need it, and I could not be prouder. Our district aims to teach students the tools they need to be academically successful and how to be engaged members of the larger Tiger community. Your willingness to meet donation requests and give your time to important causes lets me know we are reaching these goals.
Please be reminded that the Holiday Recess for the Hudson Falls Central School District will begin on Thursday, December 21. Classes will resume on Tuesday, January 2. We hope you have an enjoyable Holiday Recess!
Hudson Falls Gives Back
The spirit of generosity and compassion is abundant within the community as the holidays approach. Individuals, organizations and local businesses have come together to ensure that every household experiences warmth and joy during this festive time. Through the efforts of
The Hudson Falls Teaching Aides and Assistants Unit, wrapping paper was collected and distributed for 72 families in our district. Additionally, our November HF Community Run 4 Kids 5K raised a record $5100 each for Operation Santa and Rotary Club. Finally, a new partnership with Family Dollar on Lower Main Street collected in excess of $4400 worth of toys. Read the full heartwarming story on our website. Through these collective efforts, we exemplify the true essence of the season by embodying the spirit of kindness and giving.
