Thank you - On behalf of the entire staff at Hunter, we would like to express profound gratitude to our Hunter PTA and to all of the families who helped to celebrate our staff during Teacher Appreciation Week.  We cannot thank you enough for a touching video that has been played on repeat, the beautiful chalk drawings, and such kind words through social media, email, and cards that have meant even more since we cannot interact with our students each day.  We are super appreciative of the gift cards, and we cannot emphasize enough our gratitude to our collective Hunter family.
