The Hunnewell PTO relies on the engagement and commitment of parents to enhance our children's school. You are already a member of the Hunnewell PTO ... a member who can bring energy and ideas (big or small) to our community. Our school community is strengthened when we share our talents and work together toward the common goal of bettering our children's educational experience. If you are interested in an open position (highlighted in green below) or in helping more generally, please contact Molly Bruni or Jennifer Mock at
