    ★ NEW  PTSA Fund Drive Update

    With the 2018 Fall Fund Drive officially over, we’re happy to report—Together, we raised $139,810! That’s quite an accomplishment, wouldn’t you say? (We only missed our mark by about $10K.) So a big ol’ THANK YOU to everyone who participated; which was just under half the families at Hamilton. And to those that didn’t, please take a minute to reconsider; it’s for the kids after all. The Donation’s Page will be up for while longer to accommodate any change of hearts.

    Letter from the Principal

    Hamilton PTSA

    ★ NEW  Principal Dorian Manza 

    Dear Hamilton Families,

    We just completed a very successful first quarter of the school year! Our students have been working hard in the classroom, exploring new content, and taking on new challenges. The Hamilton staff remains committed to a tradition of academic excellence and high levels of student engagement. Students and staff celebrated the end of the quarter by kicking off the first ASB spirit week last Monday. The spirit days included pajama day, school colors day, Halloween, sports day, and twin day. Ms. Fox and Ms. Stratton may have started a new thing by offering Flannel Friday as well. We had high levels of participation for each spirit day and the students showed a tremendous amount of school spirit! 
     
    We also celebrated Filipino American History Month and Disabilities Awareness Month in the commons during all lunches last Friday. On behalf of Hamilton, I would like to thank the Hamilton families that brought in some amazing Filipino dishes for the staff including: Ube Cookies, Maja Blanca, Buko Pandan, Spam Musubi, Pancit, and Lumpia! Thank you! I would also like to thank our counseling staff for their diligent work in recognizing and celebrating the diversity calendar.  
     
    The last spirt week event was the school dance. The ASB Fall Dance was a great success on Friday, with more than 150 tickets sold and several free entries extended to students who were caught participating in that day’s Spirit event. Dance contests were held, loud music was enjoyed, lots of concessions were consumed, the Hamilton Hawk frolicked, and Ballard Orthodontics generously made themselves available to come and offered some photo booth fun for the kids. FERPA rules prevent us from being able to post crowd pics, but we caught sight of several Hamilton chaperones smiling and enjoying themselves as well…

    A Fall-Themed Door Decorating Contest was also part of the ASB Spirit Week festivities… so many classrooms participated, and the school looks great.  Winning advisory classes were announced on Monday, and those classrooms will receive some fall treats to enjoy during this Friday’s Advisory.
     
    The contest winners were:

    First place, Ms. Katherine Fox’s Advisory with the Autumn Fox Den
    Fox Door

    Second place, Mr. David Evans’ Advisory with the Fall Peanuts theme
    Evans Dorr

    Third place, Ms. Liese Anex’s Advisory with a Halloween theme
    Anex Door
     
    We always focus on learning, but it is also important to remember to have fun!
     
    Go Hawks!

    Math Volunteers 

    Greetings parents and community members!

    Might you be able to tutor HIMS kids in math during the school day? We have a need for this during “Hawk Time” – our Advisory period on M, Th, F from 2:15-2:50. What this would look like is you would help 1-3 students at a time with their math homework, quiz corrections, or general catch-up in one of the flex spaces. Mr. Bundy and Ms. Barker would make sure you are supplied with great kids who need help and are ready to receive it. We would also make sure you are equipped with what you need to know to work effectively.

    You would need to complete the “Online Volunteer Application.” One part of this application process is to complete (also online) the 17-minute “Adult Sexual Misconduct Prevention” Training.

    If you could contribute to our community in this way it would be so amazing because you would be pitching in on pursuing important school-wide goals around Eliminating Opportunity Gaps…but more to the point, you would be helping students achieve success in math. Please contact Mr. Bundy at ssbundy@seattleschools.org if you are interested, and thanks! - Seth Bundy


    From Nurses Office

    Safety Update

    This month Hamilton participated in the Great Washington Shakeout, a statewide opportunity to practice the “Drop, Cover and Hold on” response. We believe that in order to be able to react quickly in an emergency it is important to practice regularly.For resources about earthquake safety and preparation, please visit https://www.shakeout.org/washington/resources. This month we will also be implementing another Evacuation Drill, completing our annual Hazard Assessment and Identification Audit, and revising/updating our Annual Site Emergency Management Plan. Please let us know if you have any safety concerns you would like our safety committee to address.


    HIMS Talk Update 

    As part of our school wide effort to help students develop a global perspective, we offer monthly HIMS Talks. HIMS Talks is a monthly forum for students and local speakers to discuss topic related local and global challenges. Students can sign up for these 30 minute sessions with their advisory teacher. On Friday, students will have an opportunity to participate In the HIMS Talk: Immigration, Status and Asylum. Our guest speaker, Elaine Fordyce, will be addressing topics such as, “How do people fleeing danger arrive in the United States”, “What is legal status, and how do people obtain it?”, and “What does it mean to seek asylum, and what rights do asylum seekers have?”  We have a variety of guest speakers lined up, but would welcome any volunteers or suggestions for individuals who would be interested in joining us in our mission to educate students to succeed and contribute in a diverse world.  Please contact Dana Radcliffe at dpradcliffe@seattleschools.org with any potential guest speaker recommendations.

    Information from Mr. Bundy

    Greetings Parents!

    RE: Student devices, i.e. smartphones

    Teachers and parents – we all share something in common: We are adults, who care about our kids/students, trying to manage their access to and interaction with technology. I am gratified that so many conversations have been taking place and that together we are learning about this, and each other. In that spirit, I would like to inform you of an amazing talk happening on Tuesday, November 27, by the developmental psychologist Dr. Gordon Neufeld. It is particularly aimed at parents but teachers and administrators will surely find it relevant as well. I hope to see you there! - Seth Bundy (HIMS math teacher and parent of two girls, age 6 and 9)
     
    Raising Children in a Digital Age
    The digital world is here to stay, with far-reaching consequences for children. How do we lead our children through these potent technologies in a developmentally healthy way? How do we harness the spectacular potential for virtual connection and avoid the pitfalls? Dr. Neufeld will look at the digital revolution as a developmentalist committed to helping parents help their children become all they were meant to be.

    Dr. Gordon Neufeld is a Vancouver-based developmental psychologist with over 45 years of experience. A foremost authority on child development, Dr. Neufeld is an international speaker, a bestselling author (Hold On To Your Kids), and a leading interpreter of the developmental paradigm. His Neufeld Institute is now a world-wide charitable organization devoted to applying developmental science to the task of raising children.


    Building Leadership Team (BLT) Meeting Summary: 10/18/18 

    The Hamilton BLT is a school governing body, made up of teachers, staff, two parent representatives, and Mr. Manza. Broadly, the group discusses and makes recommendations on the building’s strategic plan (the Continuous School Improvement Plan or CSIP), the school budget (and related budget tradeoffs), professional development and other emerging issues, as needed. The BLT meets the third Tuesday of every month from 7:30 am to 8:30 am; sometimes more in the spring budget season. 

    • We welcomed new BLT member Sandy Adams (front office, admin secretary) who represents classified staff and ran unopposed for the position
    • We heard a presentation by teacher Seth Bundy and two Hamilton parents advocating for HIMS to adopt the “Away for the Day” cell phone policy. They:
      • Noted that other SPS buildings have implemented this policy
      • Cited research on cell phones interfering with learning and impulse control.
      • Asked to survey staff on if/how they are using cell phones in the classroom as an instructional tool. (BLT approved move.)
    • Related to the cell phone policy, we discussed challenge of “solving” for lack of technology available to students in the building (e.g. insufficient # of laptops) to avoid reliance on student cell phones for in-class technology. Discussion will continue, including with PTSA. Mr. Manza agreed to reach out to other principals who have implemented the away for the day policy.
      • We heard a supervision concern around the need to ensure students at second lunch are not sent back to class areas until 12:45; admin will look into it.
      • We debriefed results of a staff survey re: student advisory period (details on results to come in later BLT report).

    If you have not done so, PLEASE register your NEW and RETURNING musician YEARLY for FOHAMI, and pay the enrichment fee of $25. FOMAHI (Friends of Music at Hamilton International) is a 100% volunteer organization that fundraises for—and supports—the school’s music program. Help keep the Hamilton music program strong and continue the additions that you come to expect.

    2. Click "Register and Payments" icon on the upper left column.


    Help the Music Program, volunteer to help concerts run!

    We are STILL looking for a volunteer to help us run our concerts in the form of a Director for Concert Operations.  Seriously, please help make this post go away.  The work is manageable and is only three times/year.  Our concerts can't run without help, and selfishly, the other board members (including me) will have to do double duty and fill in, or the concerts will be most unpleasant and disorganized, and a poor experience for our young musicians.  Please feel pity on us, your student, and your director and help out.

     Email FOHAMIhelp@gmail.com or karenschwartzbauer@gmail.com if interested.


    Camp Burton Trip Chaperones Needed Nov. 16-17

    We are still looking for two male volunteer chaperones for the Junior, Senior, and Chamber orchestras.   

    Camp Burton is a beautiful setting on Vashon Island, so chaperoning is a nice getaway with nice views, food provided, and great music.  

    Information available at the FOMAHI website. Or email Christine Holden at  tomchristinaholden@comcast.net, or FOMAHIhelp@gmail.com


    ★ NEW Silverwood Trip Coordinator Needed

    Calling all parents/guardians of Senior Band, and Senior/Chamber Orchestra.  A trip coordinator is needed to help organize the Silverwood trip/festival this May (May 11 is date of trip). There is a step by step manual from last year's organizer so it will be pretty easy to follow.  Plus, your work will be rewarded by the screams of delight from the students, and the gratitude of the directors and parents.

    Please email FOMAHIhelp@gmail.com, or Christina Holden at tomchristinaholden@comcast.net


    ★ NEW Orchestra Concerts

    Given the lack of an auditorium at Hamilton, and the fact that Lincoln is under construction, this year's orchestra concerts will be held at Eckstein Middle School (3003 NE 75th St, Seattle, WA 98115), and NOT at Jane Addams like last year. More details when the date approaches. Hopefully we will be back at Lincoln next year.

    Service Trip to India

    Life's most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?"  Has your student always wanted to travel abroad? Do they have a passion for volunteer work?  Now they have the opportunity to travel with a purpose. Next summer students from HIMS have the opportunity to go on a service trip to India! Last year 23 students attended the service trip to Tanzania and had the time of their lives! This service trip to India is about people, connections and self-discovery—all working together to change the world. It’s about being part of something bigger than yourself. It’s called ‘travelling with purpose.'

    The trip is through a non-SPS travel group called EF tours and will be partnered with the Free the Children non-profit. See some trip details: here

    Ms. Batty, a teacher at Hamilton will be taking the students and can give more details about cost/ how to enroll. You can reach her on a non-school email at missmeganbatty@gmail.com for more information!
