Picture Re-Take / Make Up Day is Wednesday Dec. 2

Picture re-take/make-up day is Wednesday Dec. 2 from 8am-1pm. The Lifetouch photographer will be in Basement room, B-14 (the Hawk's Nest Office, next to the PE/Health Dept office). Students may drop by any time during this time frame. New order forms may be picked up in the HS Main Office. 
Parents who would like to order by credit card may call the call center at 877-6832 or go onto mylifetouch.com using the picture day ID# OV575440Q1. Parents will still need to hand in a payment envelope (the form from the main office) so the photographer knows what to key into the camera for packaging and background information.

A Thanksgiving Message from the Annual Fund Team

As Thanksgiving week begins, we want to thank the families who have donated this fall and ask those of you who have not yet given to join in supporting our children.  The Annual Fund enhances nearly every aspect of the day-to-day experience at Hunter for each and every child. 

In the three weeks since we mailed the Annual Fund appeal, 186 families have donated.  This brings us to 32% of this year’s goal of $656,000.  If you have given generously already, thank you – it is much appreciated!

School Year is Here--Time to Pay Your PTA Dues

As the students get started, so does the PTA! And that means we need your help and support. From your Hunter Calendar, to our online website and searchable parent directory, meetings to share and discuss topics that impact our children's school lives, and events to bring our parent community together, the PTA brings its spirit but also needs funding. We ask for a contribution of $75 to make this all possible.  Your tax-deductible contribution entitles you to one printed copy of the Hunter Family Directory. So please send in your contribution today! PTA Dues for 2015-2016 are payable online here.  Thanks for your support and hope to see you often!

You can also always find it here. But now you can have it with you wherever you go. The PTA webmasters suggest that you subscribe to the calendar rather than importing it.
