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 huntmiddleschool@gmail.com.

Thanks for your generosity!

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.

November 12, 2014


The Burlington School Board of Commissioners announced today that it has selected Dr. Howard Smith to be the Interim Superintendent of Burlington Schools.

Recently retired as Superintendent of the Public Schools of the Tarrytowns in New York, Dr. Smith brings to Burlington a record of strong instructional leadership around student-centered learning, demonstrated results in improving student achievement, a passionate commitment to equity and closing the achievement gap, and a deep focus on building partnerships between communities and schools — a body of work that solidly aligns with Burlington School District’s priorities and current major initiatives.

Secondary School Redesign (CSSR), a nationally known educational consulting firm.

Parents and community members are invited to public forums that will engage school faculty and citizens in a process known as “position analysis", whereby community stakeholders come together to look at a set of documents that describe the array of skills needed in a 21st Century school leader, and prioritize what they think

are the most important for Burlington’s success. Feedback from all of the forums will be incorporated into the final job description that will be given to the School Board.

Upcoming forums include:

  • November 17th, Burlington High School Cafeteria, 3:30‐5:30PM (For BSD Faculty and Staff)
  • November 17th, Sustainability Academy, 6:30‐ 8:30PM (Open to the public, child care and interpreters for the following languages will be provided: Maay Maay, Somali, French, Nepali, Burmese and Karen)

Burlington Schools and Board Identifying Knowledge, Skills and Talents Required for 21st Century Superintendent


Burlington, Vermont - The Burlington School District and the Superintendent Search Advisory Committee (SSAC) of the Burlington School Board are convening three public forums as part of a collaborative effort to recruit and hire a new Superintendent by the end of the current school year. To facilitate the forums, the Burlington-based Partnership for Change, a grant-funded effort that supports innovation in the Burlington and Winooski Schools, has retained the Center for Secondary School Redesign (CSSR), a nationally known educational consulting firm. 

CSSR is currently providing the District, the Board and the SSAC with guidance in identifying the job requirements and qualifications for a Superintendent in a system that is moving toward student-centered and proficiency-based practices.

“Research says that the single biggest predictor of job satisfaction and productivity is role clarity,” said Patrick Halladay, Chair of the Burlington School Board. “As schools are changing to meet the demands of a rapidly changing society, districts must carefully identify the knowledge, skills and talents needed in today’s school leaders.” 

CSSR has found that most school systems in the country approach the hiring of a leader with only vague expectations in mind. The result is that schools often hire people who are good at getting a job, but not good at doing or keeping it. The extremely high rate of turnover in principals and superintendents across the Country are evidence of this.

The public forums will engage school faculty and citizens in a process known as “position analysis", whereby community stakeholders come together to look at a set of documents that describe the array of skills needed in a 21st Century school leader, and prioritize what they think are the most important for Burlington’s success. 

A first forum was held on Saturday, September 27th, at the Sustainability Academy. Approximately 45 people attended the forum on a glorious fall morning.

Upcoming forums include:
  • November 17, Burlington High School Cafeteria, 3:30-5:30(For BSD Faculty and Staff) 
  • November 17, Sustainability Academy, 6:30-8:30 (Open to the public, child care and interpreters for the following languages will be provided: Maay Maay, Somali, French, Nepali, Burmese and Karen)
  • November 17, Hunt Middle School, 6:30-8:30(Open to the public, child care and interpreters for the following languages will be provided: Maay Maay, Somali, French, Nepali, Burmese and Karen)
Feedback from all of the forums will be incorporated into the final job description that will be given to the School Board.  

“Especially as Burlington ‘remodels’ its education system to align with the needs of a rapidly changing society, we must find a leader who will fully embrace our vision of a student-centered system that benefits all kinds of learners,” said Hal Colston, Director of the Partnership for Change.

Hunt PTO Update 11/2/14

Hey There Hunt Families - Hope you survived the Halloween frenzy- on a Friday night to boot! 

It was brought to my attention that several of the opening remarks I made in the blog last week were not worded as thoughtfully as they could have been and I apologise if you found my remarks biased.  

This blog you read (or don't) each week was created several years ago by the PTO to help keep parents informed about what is going on at school, important events, PTO updates and anything else we choose to dump in here.  While we have tried to make it a collaborative effort and have encouraged many voices, it has panned out to be a one person show for the most part - we are all busy, I get it.  

Because of that, you get whatever I can dig up for you by trolling the website, interrogating my middle schooler, attending PTO meetings and generally being nosy.   Without multiple voices and someone to preview the blog each week, things are likely to stay this way - piecemeal and probably biased at times.  Sorry.  I will try to be more thoughtful in examining how I phrase things.  If you have any interest in contributing to the blog weekly or occasionally with things of interest to Hunt families OR would like to preview the blog before posting, I would be tickled to collaborate.  Email me at the PTO - huntmiddleschool@gmail.com.  thanks, Kate B.




Pay it forward fundraiser  The PTO thanks everybody who already donated money in the first week of the Pay it forward fundraiser - $190 was donated so far! This is a great start!

Due to lack of fundraising volunteers, Pay it forward for HUNT is the only fundraiser we have this year and we encourage every family to donate.  Checks can be sent into the office in an envelope marked for the PTO.  At the end of this post is the full letter and details about what we are able to fund this year and what items are on hold due to lack of funds going forward.  Thanks for your generosity!



Community Harvest Dinner The new date is Thursday, November 13 from 5:30 until 7:00 P.M.

We still need adult volunteers to help serve food, pick up at the end of the event (7), and help at different stations (desserts carts, trash station, beverage station). The dinner is from 5:30-7pm.   Adults will be assigned to a shift so there is time to both work and enjoy the dinner.  If you are coming anyway, why not lend a hand???  Speaking of lending a hand, if you know a Hunt family that might not have transportation to the dinner, might you consider bringing them along?  

To volunteer, contact Deb Anger at danger@bsdvt.org






  • November 3 - Afterschool Session 2 begins (if you didn't get a note saying your child didn't get in, then they are in!)
  • November 4 - Election Day - Don't forget to vote - bring your kids along for a quick civics lesson! 
  • November 7 - Report Cards go Home
  • November 14 - Hunt Dance - 7-9pm

  • November 20 - PTO Meeting 6:30-8pm
  • November 26-28 - Thanksgiving Break - No School


Pay It Forward for HUNT

Would you pay ONLY .50cents/week to help make the following amazing events, enrichment and activities happen at Hunt

• School events: Community Harvest Dinner, The Hunt Gardens, 6th grade open house, 8th grade graduation

• Student enrichment: Junior Iron Chef, Hunt Play, Assembly Fees (such as anti-bullying speakers or the Chinese Acrobats)

• Team activities: Team grants for field trips, bus fees, etc.

• School Improvements - Examples of completed school improvements 2013/14 include- Video equipment,landscaping & front-entrance renovations, stone circle.

That is all it would take!! If .50cents/week/student is paid for the 40 weeks of school, we could accomplish all of the above.

We need $8000 to make this happen. There are 400 students at Hunt. That equals $20/student for the year or .50cents/week.

$20/year - That’s just one less time a year eating out, or 1 less pack of gum a week, or a few less coffees a month.

You can send in the $20 all at once or pay a few dollars each month, or any amount that works for you. Whatever method works best for you, is greatly appreciated and utilized by our students and staff!!

The PTO raises $8,000 annually to support activities outside the school’s budget, as listed above. Our goal is to supplement and strengthen the curriculum offered by the school’s faculty, staff and administration to the benefit of all of our students.

Typically we do that by hosting three primary fundraisers each year, which are:

• Holiday wreath sale (October-November)

• Silent Auction & Pancake Breakfast (March)

• Plant & Yard Sale (end of May)

HOWEVER, This year the Fundraising Chair position is still vacant. So, as of now our biggest fundraiser is The Pay It Forward campaign. Unfortunately, due to the lack of leadership, we have had to cancel the Annual Wreath Sale, which typically generates $4200. That’s 1⁄2 our budget that we no longer have. Thus, we had to pare down the things that the PTO can help support. On the back of this letter is the budget and the things we, at this point, can’t commit to. We are hoping to get enough people together to continue to offer the Pancake Breakfast and Silent Auction, as it is a fabulous community builder

We would love if all families contributed to the Pay It Forward. Every bit helps. Please help support your PTO in raising the $8,000. We need to continue bringing our children high quality enrichment programs and fun-filled activities. (Read more at the PTO blog: http://huntpto.blogspot.com/)

If you are interested in becoming part of the fundraising team at Hunt, we welcome your participation and support. Please contact Tammy Kuypers at Kuypers5@yahoo.com. We can’t do it without you!

Each dollar you give will go directly to supporting the students at Hunt Middle School.


Please send your tax-deductible donation made out to Hunt Middle School PTO, to your student’s classroom teacher, the front office or via mail to Hunt Middle School PTO, 1364 North Ave., Burlington, VT

The Hunt Middle School PTO is a recognized 501c (3) charitable organization. Your donation is tax deductible. A receipt is available upon request. In addition, many companies will provide a dollar-to-dollar match. Check with your human resources department for their policy. Every dollar counts.
