Choir - Spreading Holiday Cheer
We are so proud of our husky families, Sun Lakes community, Safeway grocery stores and other Chandler businesses for all coming together during these difficult times to help our homeless and underprivileged students at Hamilton High School. We adopted over 120 Hamilton families as well as adopted more families from Bogle Junior High, Chief Hill and other CUSD schools. We distributed over 100 Thanksgiving Meals sponsored by the Sun Lakes Methodist Church and Safeway grocery stores. The Social Work team distributed over $50,000 in gift cards, food, clothing and other holiday items for Hamilton and other CUSD families in need!!! ETA Independence National Junior Honor Society raised $3,960 for our Hamilton homeless and underprivileged students with the help of their counselor, Michele Dussault and her team! These young students have a heart of gold and were so happy to help others who are struggling.
Our social work team is so grateful for everyone who continues to support our cause to make sure no student in our school or in our community goes hungry and has their basic needs met.

Happy Holidays to Staff
As the semester closes Cyberstart America released the rankings for participants in Cyber Start America. This is a year long competition, ending in April, dealing with cybersecurity including hacking, coding, forensics, and network security.
High scoring students can receive thousands in scholarships and certification opportunities.
Nationally there are already 1325 semifinalists out of 26797 participants. In Arizona there are currently 6 semifinalists and 3 of those are students here at Hamilton!
If you see or know any of the following students congratulate them on their accomplishments!
We are also involved in a competition with Perry High School’s Cyber Security team…And the top 4 students in that competition are all from Hamilton as well.
There is still plenty enough time for students to get involved and be successful in this competition. So, if you know any students that would like to participate, send them down to D110 and I can get them started. We even work on challenges in Engineering Club that meets Tuesday after school!
