Weekly Updates! April 15-19

Hello Hamilton Families,

We are well underway with our MSTEP testing and hope to wrap that up in the next week, then we move on to NWEA testing. Please continue to make sure your students are at school on time for the full day so they are not missing important testing as well as valuable instruction that is needed to be ready for next year. I was disappointed to see such a major drop in our perfect attendance in March. In February we had 112 students with perfect attendance and in March we fell to just 87 students out of 474.

Weekly Updates! April 8-12 - Hello Hamilton Families,

What a beautiful Sunday to kick off some great weather this week! With this nice weather it is the perfect time to start allowing your child to walk or ride their bike to school. We do have a bike rack where your child can lock their bike up.

This week begins our state testing window. We have some strict guidelines to follow during this time so I ask that you please have your child to school on time for the whole day so they do not have to make up any testing. Also, NO cell phones or smart watches during testing. Please be aware that students may not wear Apple watches/smart watch nor have their phones during our MSTEP state testing sessions. Our students in 3rd-5th grade will begin taking the M-STEP test this week and are prohibited by our state testing guide lines from having phones and smart watches in the testing session. Students in elementary don't need phones at school at anytime but may not have them in their pocket or on their wrist during testing. We have phones in every room of the school so students have access to a phone in case of emergency and don't ever need their phone during the school day. Thank you in advance for your support!

Weekly Updates! April 1- April 5

Happy Easter!! I hope everyone enjoyed the day with family and friends. I love spring and the reminder new beginnings and growth. When I think back to the beginning of the year and the amount of growth we have seen this year I am so proud of our students, families and staff. It is the result of the hard work and team effort by all.

Monday 4/1 report cards will be viewable in parent connect. Take time to review this with you child and discuss where they began the year and how much they have learned and how far they have come. If you would like to schedule a conference with your child's teacher to discuss your child's progress please reach out to the teacher to schedule that time.

Hello Hamilton Families,

I have a serious issue to share with you, this year we have had a few incidents where parents have confronted other students or parents regarding an issue with their child. This will not be tolerated at Hamilton. If you or your child have an issue or concern with another child or adult you need to see your child's teacher or come to me. Any adult that is confrontational, shows aggression or violence to another child or adult could be banned from the property and the authorities contacted. If you have any issues concerning your child please contact me right away. You can call the office to set up an appointment or reach out on Dojo.

Hello Hamilton Families!

Welcome back! I hope everyone had a wonderful break and are ready to get back to the great work we have been doing this year. We have a busy spring ahead of us as we continue to work through our curriculum and build on our academics, social and emotion strengths! Our recent NWEA assessments are showing some really wonderful growth, the home-school partnership is a big part of this growth. Thank you for that support and I ask that you continue to make sure students are at school on time for the full day, you keep up to date on Dojo postings and review work that comes home with your child. Working as a team is the best way to support your child in achieving their goals!
