Hampton Academy's new website!
Dear Hampton Academy Families,
We would like to remind you that progress reports for the third quarter will be sent home this week, March 3-7. We believe that we are partners in the educational process and you provide invaluable insight and information about your child. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child’s progress at anytime throughout the school year, please feel free to contact your child’s teachers’ to set up a conference.
In honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday and Read Across America Week, Hampton Academy students will have the opportunity to participate in a number of activities. These activities include guest readers, Literacy Trivia Competition, book reviews from teachers and students, and visiting Centre School and Marston students.
We wish to thank all of the parents, staff and students for a wonderful time on the slopes during these winter months. Over 120 students participated in the ski program this year. We wish to thank Pat’s Peak Ski Area for their assistance with this popular after school program.
