Principal's Forum

Hunterdon Central's Principal's Forum is a new community outreach/communications initiative that grew out of past years' Family School Council.  The purpose of the Principal's Forum is to create opportunities for parents/guardians to learn about key initiatives and issues at Hunterdon Central; it is open to all Hunterdon Central parents and guardians.

The Principal's Forum is chaired by Principal Suzanne Cooley and takes place once a month, throughout the school year.  Meeting dates for the 2013-2014 appear on the right side of this webpage.

In the Principal's Forum, Ms. Cooley will present information and chair discussions on topics of interest to our community, featuring key members of Hunterdon Central's staff. 

All interested parents/guardians are invited and encouraged to attend!  You're also encouraged to submit issues of interest to Ms. Cooley, by emailing her at:
