    Hamilton 2021 Virtual Open House

     

    MUSIC-A-THON is February 10th:

    A virtual, live-streamed Music-A-Thon will take place on Wednesday, February 10th at 7pm. 

    Music-a-thon is FOMAHI's annual fundraiser in direct support of Hamilton's Choir, Orchestra, and Band programs. While many regular costs are on hold, this year we have increased individual and small group coaching during COVID-19 online learning. FOMAHI has set a goal of raising $40,000 through this event. Please contribute if you can do so at this time. 

    For more information and to donate, please visit https://fomahi.membershiptoolkit.com/musicathon

    Mid-Winter Break:  No School – Feb. 15 through Feb. 19:

    February 15 – 19 Mid-winter break including Presidents Day (no school)

     

    Yearbook Photos Needed:

    The yearbook is soliciting photos – including student close-up shots to appear in the “Class Pages” section of this year’s yearbook. It’s a heavy lift to get pictures of all our kids submitted this way, so we are going to try to blanket all the possible channels to make it happen!

    Yearbooks will go up for sale AFTER SPRING BREAK.

     

    Incoming 8th Grade Families to Ballard High School:

    If you're interested in joining Ballard Performing Arts next year, consider buying a ticket to our "virtual" Spaghetti Dinner event, this Sat, Feb 6!  The Spaghetti Dinner is a traditional and treasured community event, normally held in the BHS Commons every year, where families can watch and listen to performances from every performing arts group - orchestra, band, jazz, choir and theatre - while enjoying a delicious spaghetti dinner.  This year, it's a Virtual Event, with zany skits, trivia, and highlights from past years' performances.  Buy a $10 Video Link (viewable starting Feb 6 at 7pm) and consider adding a spaghetti meal kit to enjoy while watching the show.
