• Happy New Year Hamilton School Community,

    It is hard to imagine that in a few weeks half the school year will be complete.  Please join me in congratulating our students on their success.  Many of our seniors have fulfilled their dreams and have been accepted into the colleges and universities of their choice.  In addition, our students have also secured employment in trades they have studied or are excited about their future enrollment into our Armed Forces.  

    Throughout the day, students are engaged in high level learning tasks and continue to meet the high rigorous expectations of our curriculum.  With the addition of high level courses, we are also seeing an increase in the students who are enrolled and are successful in these opportunities.  Please join me in celebrating some of our student highlights this year.

    Student Highlights

    • At the beginning of the year, students engaged in Start with Hello Week.This is part of the Sandy Hook Promise Program. In support of our student’s social emotional learning, some of the activities they engaged our students in included, Welcoming Wednesday, Thankful Thursday, and Friendship Friday

    • Our Girls Volleyball team won the Sectional Finals for the first time in Hamilton history.  Congratulations to the team!!!

    • Our 8th grade students were involved in a STEM Project where they had to release an egg from the roof!  Students were challenged to create a protective “ship” for the egg to land safely.  Students were engaged in learning about aerodynamics, velocity, engineering and physics during this activity.

    • In English Class, students are crafting resumes and polishing their professional skills with mock interviews.  In another ELA class, students published companion Flip video short story reviews (complete with scannable QR codes) for their final literary analysis essays.

The students learned the difference between organic and geometric shapes and have become experts at working with watercolor paints. Also, in Studio Art, students worked on a lesson inspired by the beautiful arabesques of Islamic Tiles. They’re working on craftsmanship and are practicing blending techniques using colored pencils.
