Hey There Hunt Families - I bet a lot of you were pulling out the cold weather clothes this weekend... I'm not quite ready for a season change - how about you?   Hope to see many of you at the first PTO Meeting of the year on Monday.  If you can't attend meetings but are still interested in being involved in school events (over and above reading the blog and checking the school website) let me know and we will be sure to keep you in the volunteering loop. (  Have a great week! Kate B.

First  PTO Meeting Tomorrow:  Monday, September 15th from 6:30-7:30pm in the Hunt Library - Agenda at the end of this post.  Please join us 6th, 7th and 8th grade families

MADRIGALS  The first Madrigals auditions will be moved to Thursday, September 18 to accommodate Hunt's sport schedule.   There will not be auditions on Monday, September 15th.  

MATHCOUNTS  First Mathcounts meeting of the year will be Tuesday, September 16 at 7:15 am, in room C-16....Ms. Snyder's room. Mathcounts is open to kids in grades 6-8 who are interested in math challenges and enrichment.  

The MATHCOUNTS Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that strives to engage middle school students of all ability and interest levels in fun, challenging math programs, in order to expand their academic and professional opportunities. Middle school students exist at a critical juncture in which their love for mathematics must be nurtured, or their fear of mathematics must be overcome. MATHCOUNTS provides students with the kinds of experiences that foster growth and transcend fear to lay a foundation for future success
