4th Annual Perennial Plant and School-wide Yard Sale
May 25th from 8:30-2pm
Yard sale donations of household items, sporting goods, holiday items, small furniture, gently used clothing in good and clean condition, DVDs, and children's books will be gratefully accepted this Friday, May 24th from 3-7pm in the cafeteria at Hunt School.
Thanks and see you at the sale!!
(Sorry, we cannot accept early yard sale donations due to space considerations. We are unable to accept VHS tapes, text books, and any item in non-working condition. Thank you.)
To arrange for pick-up or drop-off of your donated perennials or yard sale items, or to volunteer, please contact Susan at 951-2571 or firstname.lastname@example.org. High School and middle school student volunteers welcome!
Most perennials will be sold for $5! Buy the plants you need while helping to cover the cost of Hunt's Front Entrance Garden Project. It's a win-win!! All proceeds will support the purchase of outside garbage cans, and shrubs for Hunt's new front entrance gardens.
If you have perennials ready for donation, kindly drop them off to 50 Sunset Drive or to Hunt in the grassy area between the parking lots and a volunteer will re-pot them.
Please be sure to ID your plants and place them in pots or plastic bags with water so they will not wilt.
Come out to support the HUNT marathon relay teams on Sunday, May 26th!

If you and your family are out on the course on Marathon Sunday, please CHEER ON our HUNT relay runners!
On Tuesday, May 28th, we are planning to do an appreciation for the staff at Hunt Middle School, and we could use your help. The idea is to have a bunch of treats for their staff meeting at 3 pm that day.
If you would like to contribute to this effort, here is what we need:
Baked goodies (let us know what you would like to contribute)
Drinks – seltzer, juice, etc.
Help with decorating
Please let us know if you can help in any way. You can contact me at 863-2611 or email@example.com.
Thanks very much!

New at the Stone Circle
|Check out the Stone Circle when you come to the Plant and Yard Sale on Saturday!|
Beautiful new shrubs, plants and a tree have been planted around our stone circle recently, and as you can see, they look great. Be sure to stop and take a look at your fundraising dollars at work! Thanks to Bella Nadworny, Gabi Baumann, and Susan Rutherford for purchasing and planting these new additions to our garden.
|Be sure to visit the Stone Circle when you are next at school!|
Hunt Garden Committee is looking for a few people to help with watering the front entrance gardens this spring and summer. If you can help water for one week or if you can help water one day per week, anything you can do will help. High school students and scouts are welcome!! Contact Susan if you can help. at 951-2571 or email@example.com.
Want an easy way to support Hunt Middle School's Student Council and all Hunt's students? It won't require volunteering or cost you a dime? Save Box Tops for Education!Here’s how to help:
**Box Tops for Education are on the packages of hundreds of participating products that you probably use every day. All you need to do is cut them off the box they are on, stick them in a baggie, and send them to school with your middle school student. There is a container for the Box Tops in the main office.
**Did you know that Box Tops are dated and cannot be used if they are past this expiration date??
Make yourself a note on your home or electronic calendar to send in those Box Tops!! Saving them is the first step. Sending them in before they expire is the next.
The student council will be collecting Box Tops all year long, so start saving and sending in your Box Tops today! The collection box is located in the main office.
Thanks for choosing to support the student council by collecting Box Tops!
The collection box went missing for a few days, but it's back in the front entrance of Hunt and ready for the collection of your pre-loved shoes, sneakers, boots, athletic foot wear, and sandals. Don't let those shoes fill our landfills! ShoeBox recycling will get them to people who need them, because most shoes still have some life left in them. Simply bring your old shoes to Hunt, place them in the specially marked box, in the front entrance of the school, and a member of the student council will send them to ShoeBox Recycling. Thanks for doing your part! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. The band, choir, and orchestra concerts are great times to bring them to Hunt!!
