Dear Robert Hunter families,


Our first week of NJSLA state testing went very smoothly; we will continue math testing this week.


We are looking forward to fun events as we celebrate the end of the year. Our 4th grade concert is this Thursday evening. Please see information below about Field Day on June 3rd - we are looking for parent volunteers to assist with this event. Diversity Night is this upcoming Friday, May 27th. We hope to see many families there! Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to present or bring food to the event! We are looking for some additional volunteers to assist. Please see the sign up genius below.


This month is mental health awareness month. Our school counselors will be talking with students about the importance of taking care of one’s mental well being - including the thoughts and feelings that allow us to be happy and calm. Please see the spirit week fyer below.

NJSLA Testing Reminders

All families of third and fourth grade students - NJSLA testing continues this week. Please ensure your child has a good night’s sleep, eats a hearty breakfast, and arrives at school on time - no later than 8:55 am. If a child arrives at school after the start of the day, he/she will not be permitted into the classroom late for testing. They will remain in an alternate location and complete the missed section during make up testing.


As a reminder, smart watches are not permitted to be worn during the assessment - please leave these watches at home. Otherwise, they will need to be removed.
