Dear Hampton Academy Families,

      Now that the winter months are behind us, we look forward to culminating activities and planning for the next school year.  The third academic quarter ends Friday, April 11.  Report cards will go home with students on Monday, April 28.  Parents are encouraged to schedule a conference with their child’s teacher(s) if they have any questions or concerns regarding progress.  Placement planning for the 2014-2015 school year has already begun.  Parents of sixth and seventh grade students received a placement overview letter and selection form via our Black Board Connect e-mail.  This might be a good opportunity to make sure that your contact information on file is correct, as there are many activities and reminders during the last quarter of the school year.  We request that the Placement/Selection form be returned by Friday, April 18.              

      We invite you to view our sixth grade students’ art work on display at the Wicked Sweet bakery.  We would like to congratulate McKenzie Wall for her success in the State Spelling Bee, Jordan Gallagher and Robbie MacLean for their recent successes in state and regional wrestling tournaments.   Additionally, we would like to recognize our winter sports programs for their successful seasons.  Both the girls and boys basketball teams had great seasons.   The MathCounts team competed well at UNH and our Hampton Academy Players production of “Murder at Crooked House” concluded this past weekend.  Our band and chorus performed beautifully at the SAU’s concerts.  Thank you to all the parents and volunteers who supported these groups.  School is closed the week of Monday, April 21, through Friday, April 25, for spring vacation. 

      Although we are heading into our last quarter, we want all our students to maintain routines and academic focus.  Our AAA and Power Hour extra help sessions will continue on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday into June.  We encourage you to continue to communicate with your child’s team and do not hesitate to contact them with questions or concerns.
