Dear Robert Hunter families,


We had a wonderful time welcoming the new year with our whole school this past week at our virtual New Year celebration! We know that we continue to face many challenges as we start 2021. There is unrest and uncertainty around us, but we are entering this new year as part of a strong community who will continue to work together and support one another!


January 9th-16th is Robert Hunter’s virtual Diversity Week, and we are thrilled to open the new year with this special whole school activity, as we celebrate the wonderful diversity of our community. We hope you will consider participating in this event. Please feel free to join your children in sharing about your family cultures and traditions. We are so proud to be part of our diverse Robert Hunter community.


Warm regards,

Mrs. Glaab and Mrs. Braynor
