Dear Hampton Academy Families, October
On behalf of the staff, we would like to thank parents and students for a safe and successful school opening. Thank you to all parents who attended the grade 6 Environmental Camp meeting and thank you to all the parents who are supporting our fall athletic teams.
The Power School parent portal is available for you to keep up with your child’s grades, assignments and announcements. If you have not yet created an account or are having difficulty logging into your account, please call us at 926-2000 for assistance. Mid-trimester progress reports will be issued to students on Monday October 17. The first trimester marking period ends December 2. Report cards are expected on December 12. Parent conferences are scheduled the week of November 17. Students in all grade levels should have well-established homework habits at this point. Please contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions or concerns about your child’s academic progress
The Hampton PTA fall fundraiser, Meadowfarms, is underway. Forty percent of the proceeds your child raises goes directly to their student account and will be used to reduce the cost of environmental camp or a class field trip. Completed order forms are due by October 12. Orders can also be placed online at www.meadowfarms.com .
Going on sale tomorrow and continuing until October 31, our 8th grade is sponsoring a NYC calendar raffle for the month of November. One hundred percent of calendar sales goes directly to 8th grade students’ account for the NYC trip. We would like to thank local businesses and community members’ donations. Prizes will be drawn daily each day in November.
Student Council will be sponsoring a PINK RIBBON social on Friday, October 14, at Hampton Academy from 7:00-9:00 pm in the dining hall. We will have music, dancing, food and games as we all get together in our best pink attire to raise awareness for breast cancer. Tickets are five dollars and will be available starting Tuesday, October 11, during lunches. Proceeds will support team Hampton Academy in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk. You can also support our team by making donations and/or joining us for the walk on Sunday, October 23, at the Lincoln Street School in Exeter, NH. The walk begins at 11:00 am. Please contact Hampton Academy with any questions.
In observance of Columbus Day, there is no school Monday, October 10. The first teacher in service day is Friday, October 28. There is no school for students. A calendar with all release days and holidays can be found on our SAU 90 website.
Our sixth graders will travel to Camp Merrowvista in Center Tuftonboro, NH for environmental camp, October 24-28. Red Ribbon Week will be celebrated the week of October 31. Our Guidance Counselors and staff will offer a number of activities to encourage students to take the pledge to resist drugs and violence. Below is a list of October events at Hampton Academy. We will continue to use the BlackBoard Connect message program to communicate with families. You can visit our website for calendar information, scheduled events, academic and community resources.
