It’s HERE! DC Trip- June 3rd, arrival 5am- side doors by the Upper School parking lot. Load water donations under buses, say goodbye to your student. Students will enter the school. CHANGE TO PROCEDURE- students will find their chaperone in the cafeteria immediately. Each table will be designated for a chaperone group/bus & students will be marked present upon arrival and bags will be checked. Students should not wander around. Students please find your chaperone immediately and stay at the table until buses are loaded. 


In the past, students have provided $2 to tip the bus driver at the end of the trip and $2 for the Arlington National Cemetery tour guide. Although not mandatory, I know it is appreciated, and we will be asking chaperones to collect donations when they check in. ($4 total). Thank you! Families, thank you for your cooperation along this journey!

8th grade student schedules:

Students going to HHS will receive their class schedules at the high school in the fall. We know this is a super exciting time for our 8th graders headed to HHS!!! Please know the high school staff is currently working very hard to get every student placed in classes. Neither Hunking, nor the high school guidance counselors, have any information on schedules at this time. Thank you for your patience!!


Planning ahead for 7th graders in the fall….

Haverhill High School Career Technical Program (CTE)  as well as many other private schools and vocational schools consider 7th and 8th grade years when making admissions decisions. If you have a student who will be in 7th grade in the fall of 2024, attendance, grades and behavior are three areas that HHS CTE and the other schools consider. Admission to these programs has become more competitive so all three of the areas are important. Additionally, deadlines are critical! 








7th Grade: Social Studies students have applied what they have learned this school year about Ancient civilizations and started creating their own civilizations. In Math class, students are continuing their i-ready competition.  7A (Ryan’s homeroom) and 7C (Ott’s homeroom) are currently in the lead. Keep passing those lessons. 


8th Grade


Field Trips: We hope that the 8th graders who are visiting Washington, DC next week have a wonderful trip. When they return, they will be visiting Bradford Swim (6/7) and Canobie Lake Park (6/10) so please be sure that you have signed up for those activities and paid the appropriate fees.


For students not attending the DC field trip, we have a fun week of activities planned, including a bowling trip, courtesy of the PTO (permission slips required & must be filled out via CheddarUp link). 


Debate: The 8th graders this week performed their “debates” live in the gym and then via remote Google Meet. We are grateful to the parents who came to support and cheer on their students and regret that some of the timing prevented all guests from seeing the match-ups they were looking for. When the debate continued digitally, we recorded the meets so that those parents (and others!) could see the final outcome. You can find those recordings (with the files named after the students who appear in them) here


ST Math and i-Ready will be available for students to use this summer until the second week of August!


NEWS FROM OUR NURSES:  Please remember to pick up any medications prior to the end of the school year. Any medications not picked up will be discarded at the end of the school day on June 12th. 

If you are making appointments over the summer, please note we will need physicals and updated immunizations.  In preparation for the 7th grade year, there are required vaccines (TDAP and Meningococcal) that are state mandated. Please send in a current physical with proof of vaccinations when received. Letters have been sent to students that have been found to be missing these required vaccines. Proof of yearly physicals should be sent in to the health office yearly so your students health record is up to date. They may be faxed to 978-274-1944.

Tree and grass pollen continues to be high in the area. The health office does not supply allergy medication so please medicate your child accordingly if they have allergies. Also with the warmer weather, please remember to send your child in with a water bottle so they stay hydrated.





It is hard to believe another great track season has officially come to a close. Our Bobcat family is incredibly proud of our runners for their hard work and dedication.


A special shout out to this season’s team Captains: 


Clare Crowley, Christian Tang (Gr. 5)

Suzanna Bisson, Kaiden Dumoulin (Gr. 6)

Zoe Hernandez, Kiptyn Ziminski (Gr. 7) 

Leilana George, Remy Rossetto (Gr. 8) 


These students have not only led by example amongst their teammates but were consistently showing up for themselves in all the ways a leader should. 

We cannot wait for the official results from both of our district-wide meets to celebrate just how amazing each and every one of our athletes is. 

A HUGE thank you to our track families and staff for all of your support! 

Your kiddos BIGGEST fans, 

Coaches Law, Molina & Gibbs

-All students have been issued school IDs. It is required that they bring and wear their ID badges each day. These badges are also used for breakfast and lunches as well as to “swipe” on & off the bus. 


-Please make sure that your student(s) are coming to school daily with a fully charged chromebook. 


HPS has chosen School Device Coverage (SDC) to insure the Chromebooks that students have been issued. The cost of coverage for the year is $20 and includes accidental damage, loss, fire, and theft. As of right now, families have the option to sign up during the month of September (we will let you know if it extends). After sign up closes, only new students will be given a special code to sign up at registration. Our website explains SDC and has instructions on how to signing up online:


Qustodio: a FREE student safety, digital wellbeing platform that helps parents/guardians control their child’s access to the internet on their school issued devices. Qustodio is FREE for HPS Students/Families. More information and how to sign up for Qustodio can be found on our website at:


-Please make sure that you are sending your student(s) with a water bottle. We have a limited supply of cups and we do not have access to water fountains, only water bottle filling stations.
