Annual Fund: Pizza Party Winner!

The grade with the highest participation rate in the Annual Fund this year is the 7th grade, with 69.4 percent of the grade contributing! It was a very close race, and thanks to all who participated, as well as to all who support the school in so many other ways. We all really won, in that every Hunter student will benefit from the money raised.

The 7th grade will have a grade wide party on Friday, 6/16 at 11 AM in the Hunter Cafeteria. Please let your child know! We also need parent volunteers to help serve pizza. If you can help, please email us at annualfund@hunterpta.org.

Please note that even though the deadline has passed for this party, it is not too late to donate to the Annual Fund with this link: https://www.hunterpta.org/annual-fund.

Parents: Link School Calendar to Your Devices

Parents of Hunter students can now link the school's calendar to their personal devices like smartphones and tablets. The electronic HCHS Calendar is part of the school's website. 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.
