A Connection with Distance Learning Academy - April 2021
A Note from Mrs. Z
Dear Hamilton Ridge Families,
I hope this message finds you celebrating a successful third quarter of learning for your child! As we step into spring, please know that though your children are not here in person, I wish them continued learning growth. Thank you for your ongoing support of learning in DLA. Have a happy and safe spring break!
I wish you a happy and safe spring break!

Hamilton Ridge PTC Update
WOW! Hamilton Ridge families, a huge THANK YOU for all you did in raising $26,940 for our spring direct donation drive. We already have approval to build a gaga ball pit for the playground, and more news will be coming soon. We hope to purchase equipment to use yet this year, especially for our 5th grade friends who will be leaving us to go to middle school! Congratulations to our top 5 earners who got a wicked cool Hamilton Ridge face mask:
1. Ariana Christopherson
2. Kylie Fisher
3. Caleb Niemann
4. Kendall Loeffler
5. Audrey Tschepen
And our top 3 winners will join Principal Zwolenski to be "principal for a day." Plus, Mrs. Z is getting her costume ready to dress up for a day since we made our goal! What will she be?
The next PTC meeting is Tuesday, April 13 at 6:30. Stay tuned to Facebook for a meeting link and potential in-person location.
April restaurant dates are as follows:
- Davanni's - Thursday, April 1 for takeout, dine-in or delivery
- McHugh's - Wednesday, April 13 for dine-in or takeout
Let's support these local businesses and get some money back, too, for our school!
The DOGS are building a time capsule for Hamilton Ridge! What kinds of things should we put in it? Let us know on Facebook or at email@example.com. Principal Zwolenski will keep it under lock and key in the office, and 20 years from now, the staff and families will open it up. What a year to remember, right?
The entire school directory is now available, separated by grade. You can find it at this link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1P6FgCcC5mf1yUgnfTQ5iKfSQIprLqn9XE8H3aBrIHAk/edit?usp=sharing. Families were invited to opt-in in to this directory at the start of the school year. Please reach out to the Hamilton Ridge PTC with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have more exciting updates in the coming weeks, so stay tuned! Thank you for all the support you show the PTC all year long!
