What's Happening at Hamilton
On Tuesday, Sept. 16, handouts will be distributed during 6th period. Included is the VERIFICATION FORM, which is due back on Friday, Sept. 19. These forms are VERY IMPORTANT. Verification forms show all the information we have regarding your household's contact information, as of today.
Please be sure to sign the form on the front page, top right-hand side, in the designated signature area. We are unable to make ANY changes without it being signed by a parent/guardian and we need the original copy for filing.
· PE Waiver Forms will be distributed during the first week of October, instructions included.
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.
** NOTE: Scholarships are available, but funds are limited. Please contact Liz Chase for more information.
Dear Hamilton Friends and Families,
We know that many of you may wish to extend your sympathies to the family affected by the accident this morning. For privacy reasons, we have not attempted to contact the family directly, but a Lincoln/SNAPP parent has created a Google Form through which many families in the area are submitting messages of support and sympathy. If you and/or your student would like to submit a message to the affected family and their seventh-grade son, you may do so at this site:
Please note that per Principal Watters' email, the student is now at home and recovering.
The PTSA has also been informed that there is neighborhood interest in planning a Safe Streets Walk in Wallingford to highlight safety issues on some of the roadways and at some intersections. If you would be interested in participating in the planning of such an event, please contact Cathy Tuttle at Seattle Greenways at email@example.com or the PTSA at HamiltonPTSA@live.com. HIMS PTSA will provide additional information on any such opportunities as they arise.
We’d also like to extend our gratitude to the fine staff at Hamilton, who pulled together under stressful conditions to attend to the needs of our students and families for keeping us informed about the situation.
Best wishes for good health and a quick recovery for the Hamilton seventh grader, and for a lovely and relaxing weekend for the whole community.
- Lisa Melenyzer
