School Year is Almost 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!

End-of-Year PTA Announcements, Next-Year Schedule

The PTA has a few introductions and some reminders as we all head into summer. First the introductions: We have two newly elected PTA co-presidents, Paul Radvany, parent of both a rising 9th grader and 11th grader, as well as an HCHS alumnus himself; and Michele Weisman, parent of a rising 8th grader and a daughter who graduated from HCHS in 2012. The full roster of 2015-16 PTA board plus PTA committee chairs and executive grade representatives is located here.  Seventh & 8th grade travel class reps will be confirmed later this summer after travel classes for those grades are formed. If you are a 2020 or 2021 parent and wish to be on tap to serve as a travel class rep, please let Paul and Michele know at president@hunterpta.org.

For more on Paul and Michele, and to see what you should expect from the PTA in August as well as a snapshot of important 2015-2016 school year dates, read on.

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. (A full pdf version can also be downloaded here.)

Magazine Drive

Hunter College High School is in partnership with an online service called Great American Opportunities.  They offer literally hundreds of magazine subscriptions, and if you subscribe through them, the Hunter PTA receives 40% of the profits!  Got a kid who loves to cook?  A mother-in-law who loves to garden?  A colleague who loves to travel?  A babysitter who’s really into fashion?  There’s a magazine – or two! – out there for each of the people on your list.
