NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY INDUCTION
On the 100th anniversary of the founding of the National Honor Society, Hamilton’s chapter inducted the newest members to the organization. About half the 230 new inductees attended the in-person formal ceremony held on the football field while family members cheered from the stands. While it was too windy for the usual candle ceremony, all other aspects of the ritual occurred, including the procession in led by current members, the NHS pledge, the recognition of each new member by Principal Michael Delatorre and NHS President Jolie Wahlberg as their names were individually announced, and the signing of each new member in the formal register, a historical document that includes signatures of Hamilton inductees since the charter was issued in 1998.

If you walk through the World Language hallway at Hamilton, you may just think you’re strolling through the streets of France, trying to choose a cafe to visit. You’ll find not only croissants and eclairs, but croque monsieur, poutine, chawarma, and liege waffles on the menus.
French 1 students have been working really hard all semester on their French skills and they did a fantastic job presenting their menus, in 100% French! Speaking a foreign language is no easy task; they are doing great with their French speaking skills and deserve a shout out - Bravo!!
Please stop by the language hallway and take a look.
