Hope Week

November 7th -11th Hamilton recognized Hope Week. We celebrated by spreading hope around the school. Students wrote messages of hope and positive affirmations on strips of paper. Our amazing social workers and Bring Change 2 Mind Club made these messages into a paper chain and hung it around the school. Messages of hope were also written in chalk on our sidewalks. Hope is a strong predictor of mental health and well-being. When we face obstacles, we are able to rely on hope to help us cope with all types of stressors. Please reach out to our social workers and counselors if you need support. Click HERE for resources. Everybody deserves to feel hope!

PSAT, Now What? Parent Presentation

Thursday, Dec. 8th, 7-8pm

This is an online event.

National Merit Scholarships aren’t the only things that make PSAT scores valuable. A student’s performance on the PSAT/NMSQT® is a powerful indicator of ACT/SAT readiness, and PSAT results can be a valuable tool to inform ACT/SAT preparations – if you know how to use them. So instead of throwing that score report away, bring it to this session where we will cover how to use your PSAT/NMSQT® results to identify not only whether to take the ACT or SAT, but also how to build your child’s best plan for success.
