Chess Club: “Calling all Hunter chess players”…. ChessKid.com is unlocking all Puzzles from May 20-31 even for basic members! Encourage your child to solve as many as they can! Your child can use their existing ChessKid account if they have one, or you can create a basic one for them for free.
Visiting Author: The PTA has successfully voted to transfer $500 from the Cultural Arts Fund line item to the Medic Center line time to purchase books authored by Steve Jenkins and Robin Page.
5th Grade Families: Hello 5th grade families!!! Plans are well underway to make sure that our 5th graders feel just as special as any previous graduating class and part of this is the slideshow which will be used as part of the graduation festivities whichever form they take. Thank you to all those who sent in a favorite/baby photo of their child. In addition, we are looking for candid photos from school events from their Kindergarten year all the way through this year. So if you have any you can easy send in please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Obviously, not all photos will be able to be used but we are trying to ensure that as many 5th graders as possible are included and the more people that send in photos the better. If possible, please write the names of the children pictured in the photos in the email. Thank you for your help on this project!
**The 5th Grade Graduation Committee met last week. Celebration recommendations from the committee will be communicated to all 5th Grade Families.
Yearbook: The yearbook online ordering has been extended until May 31st. You can order at strawbridge.net using the code YB105589. Thanks Christine Weingarten and the yearbook committee!
Wednesday Morning Club Yoga: Please join us for every Wednesday morning for Virtual Morning Yoga Sessions with our interim Yoga Instructor, Ms. Loveless at 8:15am, Sessions start at 8:30am. This is a very effective way to relieve tension and help both students and parents relax and get ready for remote learning.
