Mission Statement

We at R. B. Hunt Elementary School believe that all children can learn. We will provide children with a supportive, caring environment that develops self-esteem, self-motivation, and a sense of responsibility. We strive to provide every opportunity for maximum student achievement and to recognize and stimulate special talents in all students. The educational environment and the teaching strategies are designed to meet the goals and objectives of a strong curriculum. Our major goal is to prepare students to become responsible citizens and to take their place as productive members of the community. We believe that education is a cooperative effort among home, school,and community.

ELA Textbook Adoption Committee Opportunity

During the fall of 2020, St. Johns County Schools will be participating in the process of textbook adoption for English Language Arts. We are in need of non-instructional members (i.e., parents, community members) for the textbook adoption committee. Committee members will have the opportunity to review a variety of ELA instructional resources and provide valuable feedback. This process will be completed in mid-December, all meetings will be virtual, and every effort will be made to minimize your time commitment. If you are interested in being considered for this opportunity, please contact your school's Instructional Literacy Coach.
