What's Happening at Hamilton
It is time for students who are enrolled in two (2) year-long elective classes to complete their Physical Education waiver forms. This contract allows those students to waive the PE requirement, so long as they complete 60 hours of directed physical activity.
Information on submitting a PE Waiver will be going home with students this week, or you can download the form HERE.
REMEMBER: Completed P.E. Waiver forms are due no later than December 1, 2014. Students have until the end of the school year to complete their hours, but you must submit a completion plan no later than December 1, 2014.
If you have any questions, please contact Elizabeth Peila in the Registrar's office at email@example.com
The Healthy Youth survey includes questions related to physical activity and diet, unintentional and intentional injury, substance use, risk and protective factors, access to school-based services, and sexual behaviors, abuse and orientation. Survey results are used by schools, communities and state agencies to plan programs to support our youth and reduce their risks.
The Healthy Youth Survey is given to students in grades 6, 8, 10 and 12 across Washington State.
Participation in the survey is voluntary and the students’ answers are anonymous.
Please read the Parent and Student Notification flyer for more information about the Healthy Youth Survey.
Families can now visit the YMCA HOST page on the Hamilton website to register for Fall 2014 HOST classes. Hamilton students have also received a HOST form with class descriptions and registration instructions (this is NOT a registration form).
Hawk Out of School Time (HOST) programs are offered through the YMCA at Hamilton. HOST classes will take place at Hamilton Int. Middle School. Fall HOST programs run Monday – Thursday, from 2:30 – 4:30pm, with the exception of early release days. Classes are offered in the areas of academic assistance, recreation, and enrichment. Academic classes and the HIMS Yearbook Club will be offered free of charge, while all other classes will have a fee. Snack and transportation (to most areas) are included with HOST classes.
Registration opened online at 2:00pm on Monday, September 15. Families are encouraged to sign up soon, as some classes will fill up quickly! For additional information, contact Liz Chase in the YMCA Community Learning Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or (206) 252-5831.
