It is my hope that this summer can be a time to reset and a time of refreshment for students and families. A change of routine and pace will be good at many levels. If you need to contact us during the summer, the office in the elementary will be open every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9 AM until 3 PM. The 2024-2025 school year will begin for Y5-8 on Wednesday, August 21 with a scheduled full day.

On behalf of the teachers and staff at Hudsonville Christian School, we thank you again for the opportunity to partner with you this year. As we look at the eighth grade class this year, we marvel at how God moves these young people to mature and grow through the years. Our continuing prayer is that they may continue their journey of growth in the knowledge and faith in Christ, and that they live it out in our community and the world.

In His service,

Devon K. Brinks
