Caleb Dustin Hunking School


Caleb Dustin Hunking bears a close relationship to Haverhill’s most historical character, being a direct descendant of Hannah Duston. Born in Hill, New Hampshire February 24, 1805, he attended Franklin Academy, Franklin, New Hampshire for a short time after which teaching occupied several years of his early life. Removing to Haverhill he became one of the best known and esteemed shoe manufacturers in this City. In 1855 he became the first man from Haverhill to sit on the Governors Council and in 1857 served in the State Senate. Later he was “Justice of the Peace and Quorum for all of the Counties of the Commonwealth.” In 1847 he built a home at the corner of Merrimack and How Streets where the Masonic Temple now is. When the Business Section expanded from Water Street to Merrimack Street in 1871 the house was moved to Main Street. In 1923 it was sold to the American Legion for use as a home. Expanding his shoe business he built “the Granite Front” a business block at 68-84 Merrimack Street where he occupied the upper floors, renting the street floor to R. H. Macy who later sold his business here and moved to New York where he established and built up the spectacularly successful department store bearing the name of “Macy’s.” A substantial amount of capitol is said to have been supplied by his friend Caleb Hunking.…..

  • Health Screenings

    January 8, 2019
    Dear Parents and Guardians,
    We will be conducting several health screenings this year. These are mandated Massachusetts Department of Health requirements, which are performed yearly.
    The following screening will be done at Hunking School: postural screening exam on all students in grades 5-8 and heights and weights (BMI) on the 1st, 4th, and 7 th
    grade students.
    The results of these screenings will not be communicated home unless we have concerns that merit further medical assessment. Each student will be screened privately, and all results will remain confidential.
    If you do not wish for your child to be screened, please send a written, signed request to the nurses.
    Please feel free to call the nurses with any questions.

  • A Message from the Principal 1/13/2019

    Dear Parents and Guardians,
    Congratulations to all the Hunking students who were recognized at the PRIDE assembly for demonstrating integrity on a daily basis. Integrity is essential to success and you should be proud of your children!!!
    Congratulations to those students who were selected this week as our “Weekly PRIDE Students”. I will meet with those students on Monday to express how proud of them I am. Students will be selected each week and referred by their teachers. I will meet with them, call home and they will be recognized during
    morning announcements. It is so important to recognize those students constantly making the right choices. This also gives me a chance to meet and connect with new students, while also connecting with parents. Thank you and you should be proud!
