Dear Hampton Academy Families,

            I would like to begin by thanking families and staff for supporting our students during the recent Smarter Balanced testing.  This testing is a benefit to students in that it will give them a greater understanding of their academic strenghths and weaknesses.  Additionally, it provides our school district and teachers with important feedback about our ability to provide a curriculum that leads to student success.  Results will be mailed home as soon as they are available.

There is still time to order a Hampton Academy yearbook.  The deadline to order has been extended to Thursday, May 11.  To order online, go to https://www.treering.com/validate  and enter in our school passcode: 1014123484803284.  A limited amount of yearbooks will be available to order after May 11th on a first come basis at a cost of $20.   If you have any questions please call or email Mr. Doherty at Hampton Academy. 

Our last eight 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.  

Grade 8 students will participate in NECAP Science Testing later this month.  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 test, please feel free to contact Mr. Magnusson or Mr. Tierney, or us at 926-2000.  Our Memorial Day assembly is Friday, May 26, at 8:45 AM.  All are welcome. 

As this is a busy time of year, please take time to check your child’s team page and view our Blackboard  email messages.  For your planning, The WHS/Grade 8 Mixer is scheduled for Friday, May 5, at Winnacunnet High School, 7-8:30 PM.  There is an Early Release Day on Wednesday, May 10.  School’s are closed on Monday, May 29, in observance of Memorial Day.  The 8th grade final assembly is Thursday, June 15, 6:30 PM, at Hampton Academy.  Seating under the tent is limited but there is plenty of lawn seating available.  The last day of school for students is Friday, June 16.  Dismissal is at 2:22 PM.  Upcoming events are listed below.
