    Host Fall 2018 General Information

    Hamilton Out of School Time (HOST) programs provide fun and enriching activities for Hamilton Int. Middle School students looking to explore new hobbies, be with friends, or get help with schoolwork. These low-pressure activities are focused on participation and fun (i.e.—Chess Club is an opportunity to learn and play the game, not to become a chess master). HOST will provide staff and mentors to engage with youth; all materials are covered by the low program fee. Several of the programs will satisfy students’ P.E. requirements. A complimentary snack is served daily. All programs take place at HIMS. Please talk to a HOST staff member if you have any questions about our programs or any of the information below.
