News from the Hunt Drama Program
Stay tuned as we will be sending out information soon about our January production meeting where we will officially get things launched for Willy Wonka and enlist volunteers to help us with all the different aspects of the production! 
We have some exciting news to share about a new class offering through Hunt's after school program:
Be on the look out for the sign up packet for the next session of after school program offerings.  The session begins the week of January 9th and we are pleased to announce that there will be a "Stage craft, Set and Prop making class".  If your child loves to make art this is the class for them.  It will be led by a very talented local artist Stephanie Zuppo who will be guiding the kids in making set pieces and props specifically for Willy Wonka.  It will be offered Thursday afternoons and run until February break.  The good news is that it won't conflict with any Wonka rehearsals. Auditions for the play will happen January 31/February1 and rehearsals will be M, T,W and some Fridays.
 *Please note that we will have a separate class offered after February break specifically for students who want to be part of the stage crew for the performances.  So even if your child is not sure whether they want to be in the show or do stage crew, they are welcome to sign up for this stage craft class now!  
 On the Fundraising Front:
Please share our link to our "go fund me" page:  
We need to spread the word to friends and family who would be willing to make a contribution.  Right now we've raised $270.00 but we'd love to see that climb!   Please share on social media or cut/paste the link and email to those you think may be willing to help us out!
Mark your calendars for February 11th for our Adult Dance Party at the St. John's Club.  We are looking for volunteers to join the planning committee for that event.  It will include a silent auction.  If you would be willing to help organize this fun evening, please send us an email at:

Hunt Happenings

We are about to begin our Winter Concert Series at Lyman C. Hunt Middle School with our musical performance groups holding concerts on 3 successive Wednesday evenings this month.

This exciting time kicks off on Wednesday, December 7 with our HMS Chorus Concert.
Our school band concert follows Wednesday, December 14, and the concert series culminates with our HMS Orchestra concert on Wednesday, December 21.
All three concerts promise to be great, are open to the public and begin at 7:00 P.M.
Please consider attending one or more of these shows to see the remarkable work our student musicians are doing with our
talented faculty members from the music department.

We are asking that any families who have not shifted their HMS students’ school registration information into our our new online system through PowerSchool/InfoSnap do so now.
This new system has already proven to be a great timesaver for parents and guardians.
Once you have entered your HMS student’s important information there will be little to no need to keep repetitively filling out paper school registration forms at the beginning of each school year. Information is filled in only once, then is quickly verified by you on an annual basis.
More information on this helpful system may be found on our HMS website, or by calling our guidance department
at (802) 864-8470.


Our HMS basketball teams have been practicing and are gearing up for another exciting season of hoop competition.
Our home season kicks off on the afternoon of December 8th with the HMS Lady Panthers taking on Browns River Middle School here at HMS.
Our boys teams begin their season away at BRMS on the same day. Most weeks we host two to three afternoons of basketball games per week.
Please come on out to support our basketball teams, I know they would appreciate the support of a big home crowd!


This month’s Hunt Middle School Heroes are the fantastic and talented teachers of our Music Department who have been hard at
work with our students for the last several months to teach and prepare our student musicians for this month’s Winter Concert Series.
So congratulations to Mr. Michael Hakim, Mr. Tim Korman, Mr. Craig Olzenak and Mrs. Jennifer O’Neill for their great work with their students which has earned them the title of Hunt Middle School Heroes for the month of December 2016.


Happy holidays to all and I look forward to seeing you around school soon!
