Hunt PTO Update 3/6/2013

Welcome back to school!  Hoping that all Hunt families enjoyed the long February break.  Don't blink - April vacation is right around the corner...

Thank you to Burlington voters for PASSING the 2013-2014 school budget!

Update from Team Phoenix:

In February, Team Phoenix enjoyed two field trips.  Mid month we traveled to the Flynn and watched a play about Rosa Parks.  This fitted in wonderfully with Mr. Rock's teachings about her important work.  Then, right before vacation, we went bowling to spend some quality team time together.  You can't have a bad time bowling and all of us, adults and students alike, were fashionistas in our bowling shoes.

Many, many thanks to the PTO for covering the bus fees for these two trips.  These outings really brightened up our school days.

Pajama Game Set Building!  

Join us for set building on Saturday, March 23, in the Hunt Middle School auditorium from 9-4.  This is always a fun event and it's great to see your work come alive on-stage during the performance night. Come for whatever part your can.

Bring:  paintbrushes (labeled), tools (cordless drills with philips bits), and/or old clothes for painting.

Highlights include -
  • Building/painting  a vintage coke machine, refrigerator, sewing machines
  • Creating a knife-throwing special effect  (who will volunteer to test that one?)
  • Creating a pajama factory out of plywood and 2 x 4's!
All are welcome - Whether or not you have a child in the play, we would love your participation!

RSVPs and questions to Alex Messinger or 373 0178

Many props are still needed to be borrowed

boxes w/pjs in them
accounting ledger w/lock and key on a string

Please contact Kim at if you can help!

February Hunt PTO meeting update

The Capstone Project allows 7/8 grade students the opportunity to pursue a topic of personal interest. It also allows them to learn in and from the community and to share that learning with the rest of us once it’s completed!

“What kinds of topics can you choose?” 

Let your imagination run free! What do you want to learn more about? What can you learn about & from the community around you?

“What are the requirements?”

The Capstone Project does take a real commitment. Once you choose a topic and an advisor, you need to get right to it—begin your community learning and then document the learning. We will also help you connect with a mentor in the community. There are meetings with your advisor and mentor along the way. The final expectation is a formal presentation of your learning.

“How do I begin?”

Fill out the initial “Application/Commitment Form” and “Permission Form” with your parents, and turn the forms in to Mrs. Pawlusiak. After that, you’ll need to find an advisor—Mrs. Pawlusiak can help! Your advisor, Mrs. Pawlusiak or Mrs. Sutton will help you find a community mentor knowledgeable in your area of interest!

Interested students will have a staff advisor and they will be connected with a mentor in the Burlington community. Students must have their applications in by March 11. Work on the project continues through mid-May and there will be presentations at the end of May. Questions can be directed to Diane Pawlusiak in the library or to Jennifer Sutton, Community Outreach Coordinator.  

Additional Capstone Project documents are pasted at the end of this Blog and can be emailed to you directly by either Mrs. Pawlusiak or Mrs. Sutton.

The Hunt PAWS Program

Hunt rolled out the PAWS program at the last assembly!

Hunt rolled out the PAWS program at the last school assembly. The acronym PAWS stands for students being respectful, safe hard-working and positive. Teachers and staff are on the lookout for students following PAWS values. Students have the opportunity to earn PAWS cards which can be turned in for a weekly raffle. In the first week, Hunt teachers and staff handed out a total out 351 cards.

More computers coming to Hunt!

1:1 computing starts next fall at HUNT!

Mr. Amato announced that all students will have 1:1 computing starting next fall at Hunt.  Several teams have been piloting having 1:1 computers over the past two years.  At present, Hunt staff are getting professional development in integrating technology each Tuesday - called Tech Tuesday.

Potential Changes to Front Entrance Lobby at Hunt

Mr. Amato talked about the Burlington school district making changes to the front entrance lobby of Hunt. There are preliminary plans that can be viewed, although we are not sure when these changes will take place.  In the meantime, there is discussion about putting video cameras in the lobby and facing the bike racks to reduce the incidence of  theft and vandalism.

Teachers are reviewing data from the NECAP exams and Mr. Amato will share trends and conclusions at the March PTO meeting.

PTO Budget Allocation:

The PTO voted to allocate $400 to help fund the Pajama Game.

The PTO voted to allocate an additional $200 towards community outreach programs

FREE Duct Tape Parenting Seminar on WEDNESDAY!

Duct Tape Parenting Book Tour 
coming to JJ Flynn!

The PTO and Family School Partnership invite Flynn, Hunt and CP Smith families to join parenting expert, Vicki Hoefle, on Wednesday March 6th from 6:30-8pm. Vickie will be offering parenting tips, promoting her new book and inspiring families in raising respectful, responsible and resilient kids. (must tell you that I took a parenting class from her ~5 years ago and her ideas and insight really helped me develop some solid parenting skills - I am a huge fan!) 

There will be FREE childcare, light snacks and books on sale at the talk. This is a great opportunity that you should not miss- we all have a lot to learn! Space is limited, so please sign up in advance by clicking this link:  Questions? Contact the PTO at

Pancake Breakfast & Silent Auction coming on March 16th!

Lyman C. Hunt Middle School
Parent/Guardian Permission Form
Community Component of Capstone Project

The Burlington School District believes that community trips and involvement are important components to a student’s educational experience.  In order to help ensure the community-based component of the Capstone Program is safe and educational for all involved, the District requires that this form be completed by the parent/guardian of all students participating in a Capstone Project, which is offered by L.C. Hunt Middle School throughout the school year.

My son/daughter has discussed the Capstone Program with me, and I am aware of the Capstone requirements and responsibilities and thus give permission for my child to participate in the Capstone Program through Lyman C. Hunt Middle School.  I recognize that there is an increased, inherent risk for my student while participating in the community-based activity of the project.  I understand that this program may involve activities that take place off school grounds, may exceed school hours, and that are not directly supervised by a school employee.  I understand that school personnel may not have visited the site, may not have met the community host, will not be present when the student is at the site, and will not supervise the visit.

I understand and agree that the Burlington School District will not be held liable for injuries resulting from accidents or unanticipated occurrences beyond their control.
