A Note from Mrs. Z

Dear Hamilton Ridge Families,

Happy January! Happy New Year! It's good to be back into a schedule this week. Students and staff are refreshed and ready to embark on a great month of learning. These next four weeks culminate semester one. Hard to believe that the school year is nearly at mid-point on January 27. Thank you, as always, for your never-ending support at home. We appreciate your partnership.

I wish you a happy and healthy 2022!

Legacy Book Club

Dear Hamilton Ridge Families,


Hamilton Ridge is offering an option for families to purchase books in honor of students and help our library grow! It is called Legacy Book Club. This is a positive way for your child to give a unique gift to all students at Hamilton Ridge.


If your family chooses to purchase a book to donate to the Hamilton Ridge Media Center, we will place a book plate in the book with your child's name, and he or she will be the first student to check out the new book. Click the button below for more details.


Thank you,


Amy Schwingler
