What's Happening?

Mr. Gerbers' August Update

Aug 2016

Being a Leo, I never celebrated my birthday during the school year.  I always looked forward to spending my birthday at the local pool with neighborhood kids, playing ball with friends or hanging out at the lake with my family.  Celebrating my birthday also meant the school year was getting ready to start and we would soon be going out back-to-school shopping.  I still get just as excited about the school year starting even though school shopping is not quite the same as it used to be and my role in the building is much different.  Summer is also not as long as it used to be when I was a kid.  I guess that happens with adulthood.  In fact, I’ve been in the office for most of the summer, but I could not be more excited about the 2016-2017 school year.

Now that the school year has started, it is clear that our students and families share the same excitement as I do about the start of another school year.  There is an amazing sense of pride in our hallways and classrooms are buzzing with students excited to be back.  Seniors are ready to go out on top and are already making plans for graduation.  7th and 8th grade students are learning how to transition from class to class and have been very successful so far.  The four-minute passing period gives them enough time to get to their locker, find their books, grab a pencil, say hi to friends and get to the next class, only to realize they forgot to use the restroom.  It will get easier for them.  

There are great things happening in our hallways, classrooms and labs.   Teachers are energized and ready to be their best each and every day.  Students are learning, engaged, using technology and being challenged like they have never been before.  Our athletic teams are competing at a high level and student participation is up.  Kids are getting involved and Marine Pride is abundant in our halls, our gyms and our community.  There are great things happening at Hamilton and I am lucky to be a part of it.

This year, I spent my birthday in the office trying to set-up, move-in and get ready for the year.  In the midst of all the crazy that was happing with staff changes, late hires, planning, scheduling, getting moved into a new office and meeting new staff, there was an overwhelming sense of calm that day.  I felt like a kid again - excited about the school year and all of the uncertainty that comes with not always knowing what the future holds but being optimistic about the direction we are heading.   

Keep smiling,

Chris Gerbers
