October Newsletter

Dear Hampton Academy Families,

On behalf of the staff, we would like to thank parents and students for a safe and successful opening of school. Thank you to all parents who attended the grade 6 Environmental Camp and grade 8 New York City night.  Thank you to all the parents who are supporting our fall athletic teams.

Our 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 having difficulty logging into your account, please call us at 926-2000 for assistance. 

October is a busy month here at the Academy. Mid-quarter progress reports will be issued to students by Monday October 6.  A paper progress report is issued to students not working up to their potential or have a 75% or lower class average.   The first marking period ends October 31.  Report cards are distributed November 10 and Parent conferences are the week of November 17. Students in all grades 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. 

Student Council will be sponsoring a PINK RIBBON social on Friday, October 10th 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 7th 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 Saturday, October 18, 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 13. The first early release/teacher in service day is Friday, October 31. Students will be dismissed at noon. A calendar with all release days and holidays can be found on our school web site.

Our sixth graders will travel to Camp Merrovista in Center Tuftonboro, NH for environmental camp, October 20-24.  The last week in October is Red Ribbon Week. 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 Black Board Connect message program to communicate with families. You can visit our website for calendar information, scheduled events, academic and community resources. 

Sincerely,

David O’Connor, Principal              Victor Sokul, Assistant Principal
