Dear Hampton Academy Families,
Our last seven weeks at Hampton Academy will be exciting ones with many different learning opportunities for students. Classes will be participating in field trips, specialty days and enrichment activities. As we continue to have high expectations of the students representing Hampton Academy, please review academic, behavior expectations and the dress code with your child. For your planning, the last day of school for students is Tuesday, June 21. Dismissal is at 12 PM. The 8th grade final assembly is Monday, June 20, 6:30 PM, at Hampton Academy. Seating under the tent is limited but there is plenty of lawn seating available.
Smarter Balance and NECAP Science Testing continues this month in grades 7 & 8. Students should eat a good breakfast, arrive at school on time, and be well rested. Your support and your child’s attendance will positively impact this benchmark testing. If you have any questions regarding the assessment, please feel free to contact your child’s teacher or us at
926-2000. A complete schedule of testing dates is listed below. Our Memorial Day assembly is Friday, May 27, at 8:45 AM. All are welcome.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank those who have participated in our fundraisers this year. These events were community-wide efforts to raise money for enrichment activities and our grade 8 class trip. We are proud to announce that Hampton Academy received almost $400 from the Box Tops for Education program. The Hampton PTA donated $3000 for to be used for student enrichment activities. The proceeds will be used to support cultural and arts activities, field trips and guest speaker events. We would like to thank all of you for contributing so generously to support our school.
The WHS Mixer is scheduled for Friday, May 6, at Winnacunnet High School. There is an Early Release Day on Wednesday, May 11. There is no school on Monday, May 30, in observance of Memorial Day. As this is a busy time of year, please take time to check your child’s team page and view our Blackboard Connect messages. Upcoming events are listed below.
Sincerely,
David O’Connor, Principal Vic Sokul, Assistant Principal
