The website is open from now until the end of October – so act quickly and place your order. Please make sure to write your child’s teacher’s name on the on-line order so that the clothing will be delivered to the correct room. If you would like to do some early Christmas shopping, please mark the teacher’s name as “Office” and we will hold the item in the office until you pick it up. All clothing orders will arrive at the school before the end of November.

We have samples for sizing that are available in the library starting this Thursday at 1:10-1:25 (second nutrition break) and everyday after until Friday, October 30. Ask your child to try on the clothing style that you are interested in and we will send home their size.

Welcome Back to Huntley!

Huntley Families

The school is looking beautiful and we are really excited to see all of our returning and new students! Our yard improved over the summer with the addition of 8 new trees and we look forward to receiving our new bench and picnic table later this fall.

On Tuesday, class lists will be posted on the windows facing the school yard. Students will find their name and new teacher and go to the sign with the teacher’s name. There will be staff available to help any who cannot find their name.

If it is raining, students will come right in the school starting at 8:00 or when their bus arrives. Grades 1-4 will go to Gym 2 (the newer gym) and Grades 5-8 to Gym 1 (the original gym). Class lists will be posted on the walls and they will be able to find their teacher by the list.

Kindergarten students do not come to school on the bus until their scheduled first day of school. All parents of kindergarten students should have received information about their intake interview date and time.

We trust that everyone will have a fabulous first day and school year. Enjoy the beautiful weather this long weekend.
