Welcome to Hamilton High School

May 2017


Well, according to the kids we have 19 days of school remaining this year.  I was hoping for more.  There is just so much to do and so much going on that I wish it would all slow down.  As a kid, I could not wait for May, as I loved the end of the school year and the transition to summer.  As a principal, May is crazy.  May is hectic, yet exciting.  May signals the end of the school year and the transition into a new one.  With scheduling, testing, awards programs, sporting events, dances, dinners and banquets and on and on and on, May is undoubtedly one of the busiest months of the year.  


May is full of everything that makes working in a school both great and challenging.  On one hand I find myself wishing for more days, for time to somehow slow down so we have more time to complete the things that still need to be done.  On the other hand, I’m excited, because May is the culmination of another school year.  With graduation just around the corner, we look to finish the 2016-2017 school year strong and start putting the foundation in place for next year.

When I was younger, I remember being bored and feeling like time just dragged on.  It is funny how times has changed.  As the stacks of paperwork continue to accumulate on my desk and with so many things left to do to wrap up the school year, I can’t help but think of Robert Frost and his poem “Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening”.  As I pause to reflect on the past year, I am constantly reminded that “I have miles to go before I sleep.”  For now, I need to stay focused.  Summer will be here soon.


Winding down,

Chris Gerbers

Principal
