Updates and Reminders
We are down to the final two weeks of school! I am excited about all the fun year end activities the teachers have planned for our students. Students and teachers work so hard all year to get to these days of celebration. Keep an eye on your class Dojo and calendar to make sure your child does not miss any of these fun activities.
Wednesday we have our Final PTA fundraiser, the STAR Stampede. The funds raised from this will support our year end activities and Family Fall Festival. Families can pledge any amount of money for this event, please return the collection envelope by Jun 2, 2023. We still need some volunteers to help with the event on 5/31. If you are free for an hour or two or the whole day, we are happy to have the help! Message me on Dojo or message the PTA at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have a fully stocked pantry at Hamilton, if you are in need of some supplemental food please come and help yourself. If you would like to stock up for summer next week that would be great as well. We can also send food home with your child in smaller amounts if you would like. Just message me or the teacher and we will take care of it.
Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) provides supplemental food assistance benefits to students who have temporarily lost access to free or reduced-price school meals due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Wayne-Westland Community School District families can visit the Food Service page to learn if their child is eligible for P-EBT assistance.
If your child will not attend Hamilton next year please let us know so we can plan our class assignments accordingly.
Our year end report cards will be available in parent connect the week of June 12. Please make sure you have access to Parent Connect before the end of the year to ensure your access. Reach out to the office if you need help with Parent Connect- 734 419-2650
Yearbooks for sale!! If you forgot to order a yearbook we have them for sale in the office for $16. We also have a few of last year's books left for $5 or both for $20. See Mrs Chris in the office if you are interested!

Family Resource Center
Are you, or do you know a student or family needing assistance? We can help with resource numbers and referrals, essential items, emergency toiletries, socks, underwear, hats, gloves, scarves, laundry assistance, food assistance and more for those unable to afford it. We have school supplies and backpacks for students YEAR ROUND. Call 734-419-2709 or email FRC@wwcsd.net. We also have a Digital Request for Services Form that you can fill out to request services. The Family Resource Center services our entire district. Our staff is also trained MiBridges Navigators and can help families apply for multiple forms of assistance through MDHHS (food, child care, etc.).
