Hamilton's Official Newsletter 7/30-8/12

Message from Mr. De La Torre

It’s been an exciting start to the school year and students are off to an excellent start. Administration spent the last couple of days meeting with every Freshman student in their English class. The class of 2026 will no doubt contribute to the rich history of Hamilton High school. We are excited to welcome families to campus on August 3rd for our Open House. Our teachers will showcase the procedures and curriculum that teachers will cover to during the school year. The teaching staff at HHS has worked hard to prepare for the start of the year and are now putting the plans to action. As always, the focus of great classroom instruction starts with excellent classroom culture founded on positive and productive relationships. Relationships are fundamental for allowing students to feel safe in their learning environment. Welcome to the 2022-23 school year!
