Fall weather is upon us, leaves are changing colors and sports seasons are winding down. Our Volleyball team has set a school record for most wins in a season and will be starting Sectionals on Oct. 18. Our Marine Soccer program competed for a Sectional Championship in the Sectional finals and closed out another competitive season in the NECC. Basketball teams have already starting open gyms as they get ready for the upcoming seasons. Girls Basketball opens with their first game November 8. There is no question that the school year is off to a good start and we are excited about what the future holds.
The energy that filled our hall the first few days of school is still here and has not faded. School spirit is high and students are planning activities to take school spirit and school pride to the next level. The next few weeks will showcase our student’s desire to be a part of something fun and exciting. Look for information regarding Student/Staff challenges, dances and fundraising opportunities and a host of other events which champion student engagement at Hamilton. These events will be supported by staff, but more importantly, these events will be student developed and lead as we continue to build student leaders in our community. This is a great time to be a Marine.
As we approach the end of the first quarter, students continue to get it done in the classroom. Students are engaged and taking ownership of their learning. Teachers are working hard to identify growth opportunities for students and are working hard to meet those needs. We know there is always work to be done on the academic front and it is encouraging to see the commitment to success being displayed in so many ways as students and teachers work together in the “trenches”.
There are many events on the horizon and here are a few to keep on the calendar:
End of Quarter 1: October 14
Volleyball Sectional: October 18-22
Parent Teacher Conferences: October 19 & 21 *No students on Oct 21
Fall Break: October 27-28
Thanksgiving Break: November 23-25
End of Semester 1: December 20
