Getting Ready for 2021!

To celebrate the first day of 2021 at RH, we will hold a whole-school Zoom meeting at 3:00 on Jan. 4th! Please encourage your child to attend! We will have a count-down and celebrate together! A Zoom link will be sent through email! Everyone will create a New Year's hat during Morning Meeting on Jan. 4th. If your child is a hybrid student, they will receive materials in school. If your child is an all virtual learner, please stop by to pick up the materials that they will need on Tuesday or Wednesday.

Diversity Night - Coming Soon!

Our second annual Diversity Night is happening!

It may look a bit different this year, but we can’t wait to showcase all of the wonderful cultures and traditions of our Robert Hunter families!

After Winter Break, we will be asking you to create a video if you have something special you would like to showcase. Start to brainstorm! The ideas are endless but here are some examples.

Can you...

  • Perform a special dance?

  • Teach us some words or phrases from another language?

  • Teach us how to cook a traditional meal?

  • Read us a story from your country?

  • Tell us a folktale from your country?

Look for more information after winter break!
