Wacky Wednesday is an event held every other Wednesday during the school year designed to raise school spirit. The Hamilton Student Council decides on the theme for Wacky Wednesdays. Students are invited to participate in the wackiness!!

The dates for February are 2/10, 2/24.

2/10's theme is to dress up in a sport team's colors or jersey, or come to school dressed in a team's uniform or sport. Any sport is welcomes - football, soccer, tennis, hockey, gymnastics, karate, softball, baseball ... have fun!

The theme for 2/24 is to follow after the next student council meeting! This site will be updated with this information, and sent out the week prior to the Wacky Wednesday in the Hamilton Weekly.



Fall Boxtops have been tallied by class and a winner has been determined, but first of all we want to thank  each class for your diligence, thoughtfulness, and participation by collecting and taping/pasting the Boxtops onto the sheets! That's no small task! You have earned money for Hamilton School! Every Boxtop counts!

And with no further delay, the class with the most Boxtops submitted is ...  5C! 

Congratulations to Mrs. Ciabattoni's 5th Grade class for collecting the most BoxTops for Education!!!





The new dismissal procedure began Monday, October 19th, 2015, for all students in Kindergarten, First and Second Grades. These students will be picked up at their outside classroom doors.


Update: Parents of students in 2H, 1W, and KL will be allowed to walk through the lobby and out the doors at 3:10 pm. Parents may walk back through the lobby to exit the school. This procedure began Monday, November 2, 2015.


Students in Third, Fourth, and Fifth grades will still be dismissed in the same manner they are now.


As well, some things that remain are:


- Older students in 4th and 5th grade may pick up younger siblings with a note from the parent.


- Students can be brought together for dismissal for play dates, pickups, etc., with a note from the parent.


- Kindergarten students are dismissed at 3:15 pm.


Your children's safety is and always will be the primary goal for such decisions.
