Caleb Dustin Hunking School

CALEB DUSTIN HUNKING

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.…..

  • A Message from the Principal

    Dear Parents and Guardians,
    This week we had a fire drill. The Lower School and two fifth grade classes did an amazing job of quietly leaving the
    building and waiting for directions. Unfortunately the Upper School treated it as a time to talk and fool around.
    Grades 5, 6, 7, and 8 practiced fire drill procedures during their recess that day. Please have a conversation with
    your child if he/she is in the Upper School about the importance of treating a fire drill as if it were real. We expect
    students to Exit the building quietly, stand facing forward, and be ready to follow directions. This is essential in an
    emergency when trying to organize and account for 1100 students. If your child is in the Lower School or the two
    classes in fifth grade please thank them for their responsible behavior.
    Hunking students are working toward demonstrating Hunking PRIDE !

    Estimados padres y tutores:
    Esta semana tuvimos un simulacro de incendio. La Escuela Inferior y dos clases de quinto grado hicieron un trabajo
    increíble al dejar el edificio en silencio y esperar instrucciones. Desafortunadamente, la Escuela Superior lo trató
    como un momento para hablar y bromear. Los grados 5, 6, 7 y 8 practicaron procedimientos de simulacros de
    incendio durante el recreo ese día. Tenga una conversación con su hijo si él / ella está en la Escuela Superior sobre
    la importancia de tratar un simulacro de incendio como si fuera real. Esperamos que los estudiantes salgan del
    edificio en silencio, se paren de frente y estén listos para seguir las instrucciones. Esto es esencial en una
    emergencia cuando se trata de organizar y dar cuenta de 1100 estudiantes. Si su hijo está en la escuela secundaria
    o las dos clases en quinto grado, agradézcales por su comportamiento responsable.
