Sleeveless garments must extend to the end of the shoulders and fit closely under the arms. Clothing should have adequate coverage to allow a full range of movement without skin or undergarments showing. Undergarments must not be visible. Clothing must cover the entire buttocks and extend a reasonable length to ensure modesty.

Athlete Student Spotlight

Congratulations to senior Yessy Marquez for taking second place in the 225 weight class for the second Girls Wrestling State Championships. Not only has Yessy been wrestling for 15 months, she bumped up an entire weight class, weighting 50 pounds less than most of the girls she competed against. No other girl wrestler was able to score on her until the gut wrenching last match.

Theatre Department Recognition

Hamilton Theatre Department was recognized by the Arizona Thespians as a Gold Honor Troupe. The designation and recognition by the Arizona Thespians of a Gold Honor troupe for Hamilton High School is for all of the activities and opportunities we provide for our students, as well as contributions to the school and surrounding community. To qualify as a Gold Honor Troupe, the highest honor, our Hamilton Theatre Department had five or more public audience productions, 20 or more thespian activities (socials, workshops, field trips to see shows, etc.), and six or more school and community service activities. Reaching this designation would not have been possible without the support of our staff and administration here at Hamilton. We have achieved this honor with the help of all of the Hamilton Community.

StuGo News

Ten members of Hamilton StuGo collaborated with Chandler High to volunteer at CTA Humphrey for their Annual Courage Retreat. The kids had an absolute blast working together and acting as examples as leaders to the younger students.

Senior Sunrise

The event was a smashing success with hundreds of seniors showing up in their PJs to watch the sunrise together. Bellies were filled with warm Waffle Luv waffles from their food truck. The seniors will close out the school year with a follow up event, watching the sunset together.

Black History Month

The BSU Club put together some great events for Black History Month. Trivia game after school, BBQ at Tumbleweed Park and Movie Night featuring "The Butler".
