Student Performances
Come out to the SoundLab on Friday April 26 at 7:30 pm and enjoy the work of some of Hamilton’s best-known student musicians as they and their classmates display their own compositions in live performances, pre-recorded tracks, scoring-to-picture soundtracks, and original multimedia presentations. Admission is free but donations are always accepted.
Senior Attendance
On Thursday and Friday before spring break, students were given personalized letters notifying them if they exceeded the number of absences they were allowed per the Senior Contract and the number of hours of community service they would need to do to maintain eligibility to participate in the graduation ceremony. Forms detailing the requirements pertaining to community service are available in the main office, attendance office and the magnet office. All forms are due to the student's counselor no later than May 24, 2019. Special circumstances such as extended illness, pre-approved college visits, and/or auditions are exempted. Please meet with your counselor to discuss any discrepancies on your letter.
