Coffee Break Bake Sale at the 
Williston Rest Stops

Is your child planning to participate in the HMS 2014 production of West Side Story???? We hope so - arts education is critical for all our kiddoes! Read below how you can help us prepare by raising money to pay for the show...

Help Needed to raise money for Hunt's 2014 Musical-West Side Story. 

What: A "Coffee Break" bake sale to raise money for the Hunt Drama Club's spring musical, West Side Story

When: Sunday, November 17th, from 7:00a.m.- 3:00pm

Where: Williston Rest Stops, Interstate Travel Information Centers, southbound and northbound

Who: Susan Rutherford is the lead for the bake sale and her contact information is susanrutherford and her home phone is 951-2571, BUT she cannot do this alone! 

Please consider volunteering for this fundraiser either by agreeing to volunteer your time, by baking, or by donating something to be sold at the bake sale.

FYI - It costs about $6000 to put on a middle school musical. This sale is one of the ways we are raising money to pay for the production. We encourage you to be generous with your time and/or baking. The more money we make from hungry travelers, the less money we have to ask for from families - help us make this play affordable for everyone! We HIGHLY encourage you to volunteer your actor/actress to serve alongside you.
Click on the Link below to see what is still needed and sign up for a shift or a donation. Thanks!

Hunt LED Marquee project organizers in need of skilled professionals!

The Hunt PTO has been busy on a project for the past two years: raising the funds and clearing other hurdles to installing an LED marquee for Hunt outreach. We have changed the zoning ordinance at City Council. Raised $9,500 (just got $2,500 on 10/28/13!). Now we need to rally the community to help us keep costs down.

We need these professionals to help us:

  • Structural engineer will provide actual sizes and dimensions of the steel pole(s) footing, etc. They will give us a design and seal it for the Building Inspector.
  • Electrician to bring power to the site and make the connection
  • Stone mason to wrap the steel support frame in bricks like the BHS marquee.

  • Excavation contractor to do the site work, remove sections of chain link fence and install replacement concrete for the sidewalk.

 Please contact Brian Pine at 578-6953 if you can help us out or know someone who may be willing to help.

Hunt without even trying.

Order forms went out last week with all of the students. Please ask your child about it.
Additional order forms can be found in the main office or print a copy from the Hunt PTO blog spot, or the Hunt website. Order forms can be placed in the main office.

BHS Drama presents...

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels

November 21-23 at 7:30 pm,
at Burlington High School, 52 Institute Road in Burlington

Tickets available at the door.  
$10 general/$5 students & senior citizens

FYI, The Synopsis Blurb:

This Tony Award winning musical comedy centers on two con men living on the French Riviera. The first is a suave and sophisticated fellow, who makes a lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. The other is a small-time crook who swindles women by arousing their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother’s failing health. When the two attempt to join forces the plan fails miserably so they come to an agreement to pull off one great scam where the winner stays and the other leaves town forever. A madcap battle of the cons ensues that keeps audiences laughing and trying to guess the cons’ next move to the end!

  An invite from the Hunt administration to YOU...

It's time again for our annual magazine drive! 

This is the student council's only direct fundraiser and all of the money raised goes to activities and purchases chosen and organized by the students themselves. Over the years, the student council has spent money on many terrific things that kids enjoy, like our PAWS mascot costume, the comfy chairs in the learning center, iPads, the band's drum set, sports equipment, and many, many other things. 

The student council supports regular events like the talent show and spirit days. We have also contributed to student-selected charities, and have responded to funding requests from classes, teams, and clubs throughout the school.  A chunk of money always goes back to teams for field trips and activities. And finally, we pay for the eighth grade dance and the buses for the annual eighth grade trip. And most of the money for all of this work comes from the magazine drive. So if you are willing and able to help out, please consider ordering a magazine from your favorite Hunt student. 

You can see kids directly, or you can order on line through this link: School pin # 2649085. Thank you for your support!
