Dear Hampton Academy Families,
As we enter our final weeks of school it is important to remember our four Hampton Academy Expectations; manage yourself, cooperate with others, respect property and act in a healthy, legal and ethical manner. Teachers will continue to assign homework and regular academic instruction will continue through the end of the year. The last day for After School Academic Assistance is Thursday, June 12th. The last day of school is Wednesday, June 18th, 2014. This will be a full day of school for children. Dismissal is at 2:22 PM. Report cards will be distributed on the last day of school along with a 2014-2015 school calendar.
We have a number of special events and activities planned for these last few weeks of school. A schedule of upcoming events is listed on the following page for your information and planning. On Tuesday, June 3rd, we will be holding our annual Celebration of Learning for Grades 6-8 from 6:30-8:00pm. Students’ work will be highlighted and displayed throughout the building. Families are invited to meet with teachers and visit classrooms. Our Spring Book Fair (June 2-6) will be open in the library (3rd floor) this evening. It is a “buy one get one free” event. On Thursday evening, June 12, please join our talented band and chorus students for our Spring Concert at the Winnacunnet High School Auditorium. The band concert begins at 6 PM followed by the choral concert at 7:15 PM. Information about Grade 6 and 7 culminating assemblies will be forwarded by grade level teachers. The final assembly for grade 8 students will take place on the grounds of Hampton Academy, rain or shine, Tuesday, June 17th at 6:30 pm. There is seating for 3 family members under the tent and additional family members may bring lawn chairs for the ceremony.
Mrs. Borg, our Food Service Director, would like to remind families to update their child’s account balance before the end of the school year. Please call her if you have any questions at 926-2000. Our school nurse, Mrs. Brand, wishes to remind parents of students who take medication to stop by school before the close of the year to pick up their medications for the summer. Additionally, the school librarian, Mrs. Saunders, would like to remind all students to return any borrowed books by Friday, June 6th. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact Mrs. Saunders.
This year, the Hampton PTA generously donated $3,500.00 to the Hampton Academy library and enrichment funds. We use PTA donations to help with field trip expenses, guest speakers, performers and enrichment events for all of our students. Our deepest appreciation goes to all our wonderful PTA volunteers this year at Hampton Academy. We would like to thank all the parents who have generously donated their time and energy to benefit the various events throughout the school year. We would like to thank Stephanie Griffin, our PTA Treasurer, for serving as volunteer coordinator this year. We thank the PTA volunteers and the executive board for their leadership, energy and dedication. If you would like to get involved in the Hampton PTA, you may contact them through the Hampton Academy office.
