Veterans Day
School is closed tomorrow, Monday, November 12th in observance of Veterans Day. We would like to thank those who have served our country and give special recognition to current faculty members: Mr. Darby and Mr. Robinson.
Your Voice Matters!
We need all parents and guardians to please take 10 minutes to complete the School Experience Survey. Your input is appreciated and needed for us to identify areas of success for the school and areas that need improvement. A link to complete the survey can be found on the Hamilton website homepage. Paper surveys can be turned in to the main office or the Parent and Family Center in Room 109.
