Robert Hunter Report
March 14, 2021
Dear Robert Hunter families,
We hope you have been enjoying this beautiful weather! We are amazed that spring is already upon us!
Our second trimester ends on Monday, March 15th. Next week will be our last week of cohorts and our last week of Blue Week/White Week. Starting the week of March 22, all cohorts will be combined, and some classes will be simulcasting to deliver instruction to both in-person and virtual students.
Our amazing teachers have been working tirelessly to prepare for new changes ahead. We ask that you are patient as they learn how to best navigate new technology and classroom arrangements.
As a reminder, on Monday March 15th, White Week Zoom “check-in” classes with homeroom teachers will not be held. Teachers will be preparing for the upcoming 3rd trimester transition.
Our students are continuing to impress us every day with their flexibility and positivity. We know that their last trimester will be strong.
If you have any questions about what your child’s schedule is for the upcoming weeks, please reach out to us or your child’s teacher.
Mrs. Glaab and Mrs. Braynor
This week's calendar:
Cohort B Blue Week, Cohort A White Week
March 15 - No White Week Zoom “check-ins” with homeroom teachers
March 17- After-school Clubs (Cohort B)
March 18- After-school Clubs (Cohort B)
March 19- Meal pick-up 1:30-3:00, Material pick-up ends at 4:00, Spirit Day - spirit wear or school colors- blue/ white, PTO Teacher donation drive ends (see below)
When the cohorts combine, more students will be on our buses. Although bus arrival/drop-off times are not changing, transportation has asked new bus riders to be outside 5-10 minutes early and to anticipate possible delays during the beginning of our new schedule .
We are asking that all in-person families complete the following survey. This survey is not for the transportation department but is information gathering for our school, so we can best plan for orderly and safe arrival/dismissal procedures.
Please complete this QUICK survey here.
An after-care program through the YMCA will now be offered at RH starting March 22. Please contact the YMCA for more information or to sign up your child.
Kindness Crew project
Our 4th Grade Kindness Crew has planned a great whole school project for March that celebrates the uniqueness of the individuals in our community. RH students are asked to complete a sentence strip with something about themselves that they are proud of or that makes them feel special. See their flyer below. Virtual families may pick up sentence strips at the school. Hybrid students will receive sentence strips in school.
