School & Administration Announcements:
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.

Teacher Appreciation: Big thanks to everyone who participated in our virtual Teacher Appreciation Week. We definitely missed celebrating in person but our Hunter staff and teachers felt the love and appreciation expressed in your notes, kind words, social media shout-outs and other forms of recognition. If you didn't get a note to one of your teachers it is never too late. Any day is a good day to thank a teacher!
Wednesday, May 12th is School Nurse Day. This week we recognize Hunter's wonderful School Nurse, Ms. Searcy! We appreciate the work she does and the care and compassion she shows our students.
Advocacy: We continue to be so touched by the tremendous outpouring of love and support FROM our Hunter families FOR our Hunter families. We have already received over 70% of our goal with 38 Hunter families/extended families giving a total of $3535. As we have shared, every penny of your donation goes right back to Hunter families needing help during this pandemic.
If you are able, please consider helping us raise the last 30% of our goal so we can reach $5000. Donations of ALL denominations are welcome - even $5 is enough for 1 meal a family may otherwise not have. Many families have given at the $5 level and we are SO grateful!
Cash/check: email firstname.lastname@example.org and she can send you her address

We are so appreciative of Steve and Robin who presented these meetings free of charge. If you would like to send them a thank you note these can be sent to 1627 5th Street Boulder, CO 80302.

5th Grade Graduation Committee: A committee to recognize the 5th graders is active and are intending to work with the school to honor all 5th graders. Committee lead is Nicole Johnson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
5th Grade Families: Just a quick reminder to send in a baby or favorite photo of your fabulous 5th grader asap if you have not already! Please send the photo to email@example.com.
