    We are continuing our long-standing tradition of Hunsberger Heroes. Becoming a Hunsberger Hero is easy. There are no cookies, wrapping paper or coupon books to sell. Families simply make a monetary contribution to the school, all of which directly supplements the cost of technology maintenance, supplemental texts, intervention support, student recognition, social/emotional learning, and much more (up to 10% of funds received may be used for staff recognition).  All contributions are tax deductible (Federal Tax ID #88-6000-919).  So, join us in this “no-fundraiser-fundraiser" by sending your check to the school or in the mail (2505 Crossbow Ct. Reno, NV 89511).

    We greatly appreciate your support!

    Hello Husky Families!

    The holidays are right around the corner!  Please keep your eye out for our 'giving tree' that will be in the front office by Thanksgiving week.  Come in and choose a paper ornament, purchase the gift card requested and return it to the front office by December 8th.

    We will make sure that your donation goes to our Hunsberger families that need a little extra support, as well as families at Peavine Elementary School.
    Thank you in advance for your generosity. YOU do make the holidays special!!!

    Your school counselor,

    Mrs. Lou Eftimoff



    November 13th is World Kindness Day and the Hunsberger Kindness Crew invites all Hunsberger students to dress for a "PJ Day" fundraiser.  Students are encouraged to wear their favorite pajamas and bring $1.00 to donate to the Northern Nevada Children's Cancer Foundation.  Donations are appreciated but NOT required to participate in PJ Day.

    CAN-STRUCTION-It starts with ONE can!  Husky Leaders and the Kindness Crew are teaming up to design and build a structure made from donated canned foods!  All donations will be donated to the Food Bank of Northern Nevada.  Drop off your canned goods at the office or in the labeled box at parent pick-up/drop-off.  We are accepting donations through December 15th.  CAN-STRUCTION FOOD DRIVE FLYER

    A HUGE thank you to everyone who donated to our Keep Reno Warm winter clothing drive. We were able to donate quite a few items to two area elementary schools. Your kindness was much appreciated!

    During the month of November, students will study the element of color and have some fun disguising Tom Turkey! 

    Calling all artists!  Tom Turkey is really worried about Thanksgiving.  How many Hunsberger students are willing to help him create a disguise?  Color him, or help him wear his disguise.  Can you help hide him from the Thanksgiving table?  Students will receive a paper with Tom Turkey on it this week in class.  Students should turn their creation into the box in the office by November 21st, for display in our hallway.  Please include student name and teacher name on the back of the page.  All participants will receive a "thank you for my disguise" surprise from Tom Turkey.
