Hunt PTO Update, 11/24/14

Hunt PTO Update
November 24th, 2014

Remember there is NO school on Wednesday, Thursday 
and Friday of this week.  
Wishing everyone a very Happy and Safe Thanksgiving!

Winter concerts

The three December Wednesdays after Thanksgiving will be filled with music!  Please come out in support of the many Hunt musicians who have been preparing several weeks for these special performances.  

All concerts begin at 7 pm.  

Wednesday, December 3rd -- Chorus concert
Wednesday, December 10th - Orchestra concert
Wednesday, December 17th -  Band concert

Bake sales to benefit the Hunt Production of Hairspray! The Hunt Drama Committee will be selling baked goods and other edible novelties at the December Band and Chorus concerts noted above (December 3rd and 17th.) This is a great opportunity for us to make a chunk of money that we can use to help pay for the Spring play.

It costs us over $6000 to put on a production and small fundraisers like this are a big help in getting us over the top! Please consider signing up to donate a baked good, bottles of water, fruit or small bags of chips. Can you help? Bring your donation to the table between 6:30 and 7 on December 3 or 17. Feel free to RSVP your item to

Thanks for your generosity!

An invite from the Hunt Principals to YOU...

Want to follow Hunt Middle School on Facebook or Twitter?

copy and paste the Hunt web site and scroll down about halfway....      

Pay it forward fundraiser Keep it coming!  Thanks to you we have raised just over $700 to put towards Hunt programs.  It wasn't you?  Well, it is not too late to donate and help us fund those items on hold (like assemblies, 8th grade class trip, food baskets, team grants...)

Haven't donated yet?  Checks made out to the Hunt PTO can be sent into the office in an envelope marked for the PTO.   Thanks for your generosity!

Please take a moment to read the PTO meeting minutes from November 20th!  December's meeting has been moved up to December 11th (instead of the 18th) in the hope that more families will be able to participate. 

...and here is the current PTO Budget (all the money stuff:)   

HAIRSPRAY, the musical, coming to Hunt!
 Auditions for the musical Hairspray start in January and the performance is March 26-28.  

Would YOU be interested in joining the planning committee for the production or getting involved in other ways?  We will be recruiting volunteers to spearhead different tasks related to putting on the production.  

If you are interested in attending a planning meeting or willing to assist with other aspects of the production please contact Colby at the address below.  

Some of the work that is involved: helping with costumes, set construction, lights, sound, supporting after school rehearsals, fundraising, selling ads for the playbill, helping with front of the house during the performance, baking, hair/makeup, helping provide transportation access to students who want to participate but may need rides home from rehearsals etc., playing an instrument in the pit orchestra etc.

The first production/planning meeting is scheduled for Monday, December 8th at 6:30 in the library.  We'd love your help and I bet this is one event your child will "let" you volunteer for.  Don't wait, high school is just around the corner and then they are off to college and that adventure called life! (can you tell I have a high schooler???)

Interesting in getting involved?
