Dear Hampton Academy Families,
As we enter our final weeks of school it is important to remember our four Hampton Academy Expectations. We continue to remind our students of the “Academy Way”, Act responsibly, manage yourself, and respect yourself and others. Teachers will continue to assign homework and regular academic instruction will continue through the end of the year. The last day of school is Tuesday, June 21. Dismissal is at 11:30 AM. Report cards will be distributed on the last day of school along with a 2016-2017 school calendar.
We have a number of special events and activities planned for these last few weeks of school. A schedule of upcoming events is listed on the following page for your information and planning. On Wednesday evening, June 1, please join our talented band and chorus students for our Spring Concert at Winnacunnet High School Auditorium. Band concert begins at 6 PM followed by the choral concert at 7:15 PM. Wednesday, June 8, dismissal for students is at 12 PM for teacher in-service training. Information about Grade 6 and 7 culminating assemblies will be forwarded by the grade level teachers. Parents of grade 8 students will be receiving letters explaining the Final Assembly evening shortly. The Final Assembly will take place on the grounds of Hampton Academy, rain or shine, on Monday evening, June 20 at 6:30 pm. There is seating for 4 family members under the tent and additional family members may bring lawn chairs for the ceremony.
Mrs. Borg, our Food Service Director, would like to remind families to update their child’s account balance before the end of the school year. Please call her if you have any questions at 926-2000. Our school nurse, Mrs. Brand, wishes to remind parents of students who take medication to stop by school before the close of the year to pick up their medications for the summer. Additionally, school librarian, Mrs. Saunders, would like to remind all students to return any borrowed books by Friday, June 17. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact Mrs. Saunders.
This year, Hampton PTA generously donated $4,500.00 to the Hampton Academy library and enrichment funds. We use PTA donations to help pay for field trips, guest speakers, performers and enrichment events for all of our students. Our deepest appreciation goes to all our wonderful PTA volunteers at Hampton Academy. We would like to thank all the parents who have generously donated their time and energy for the different events at our school this year. We would like to thank Wendy Cooper and Erin Connor for serving as volunteer coordinators here. We thank the PTA volunteers and the executive board for their leadership, energy and dedication. If you would like to get involved in the Hampton PTA, you may contact them through the Hampton Academy office.
The first day for students in the 2016-2017 school year will be on Tuesday, August 30, there is no school on Friday, September 2. School will resume on Tuesday, September 6. There will be a Welcome Back on Monday, August 29, from 6:00 – 8:00pm for all grade levels. Please look for an email message in early August with more information.
