Going to School on an Island at RB Hunt Elementary School!     

On a sleepy little island in Saint Augustine Florida, there is a beautiful bricked schoolhouse surrounded by massive oak trees called RB Hunt Elementary School.  With our historic lighthouse as a backdrop, this charming school is a delight to pull up to each morning. RB Hunt is the only elementary school on Anastasia Island and it is one of the most sought after schools in St Johns County!

This year 2012 - 2013 school begins on Monday, August 20.  The complete calendar can be found on site atwww.stjohns.k12.fl.us.  The children need to bring all their supplies with them on day one and they are by grade, as follows:

****A donation of wet wipes to Mrs. Watson’s Art Room would

The teachers are outstanding and they truly care for the children and their futures. With the ocean, the Alligator Farm, and the lighthouse so closely located, field trips are fun and exciting and right in their own back yard! The children grow gardens and are on turtle patrol and take part hands on with many different projects outside of the school.
Elementary school is the foundation for the education that our children will have for years of study to come. For many children, their like or dislike of school begins here. RB Hunt is a wonderful place to learn, play and learn valuable social skills. if you are thinking of a move to Saint Augustine Florida, remember to come to the island and visit our most popular school, RB Hunt Elementary!

It is that time of year again Diane, I'm sure Hunt Elementary School appreciates you sharing the supply list with all the mothers getting ready for the first day of school.   Keep up the good work!

I went today for a school orientation. When I talked to one of the staff members, she sang 'back to reality'. That song stuck with me for the whole day!

''Back to life, back to reality
Back to life, back to reality
Back to life, back to reality
Back to the here and now, yeah...''

:) vacation is over next Monday. So soon!
