Welcome to Hamilton Middle School
Winding Down in the Royal House
         Greetings! And WELCOME to Hamilton Middle School's website! Can you believe that there are only about two and a half weeks of school left in the 2015-2016 school year?! Before we know it, summer break will be here! As of now, we are in the process of transitioning to a new web platform... so be looking out for some much needed changes in 2016-2017! Until then, here is where you will find the latest and greatest happenings going on within our school. Check out our upcoming events, important dates, information, and so much more! Don't forget to follow us on Twitter and Like us on Facebook! Let's have a ROYAL 2015-2016 school year! Go Royals!

8th Grade Party and Promotion
              Now comes the moment all 8th grade students have been anxiously waiting for… our 8th Grade Party and Promotion Celebration! The 8th grade team started early, making preparations for our end of the year festivities! Due to the shortening of our 2015-2016 school year, the 8th Grade Party will now be held on Thursday, May 19th, from 8:00a-1:30p. The 8th Grade Promotion, which families are able to attend, will be taking place all day on Friday, May 20th, beginning promptly at 9:00a. Students will report to school at 7:50a, in order to prepare. This is an exciting moment for all of our 8th grade students; however, your student must meet the proper qualifications in order to participate: No more than 4 after-school detentions, no more than 2 days of in-school suspension, zero out-of-school detentions, and they must be passing at least 7 of their classes. Students participating in the promotion will be allowed to leave with their parent/guardian once it is over. We will miss our 8th graders, but we couldn't be more proud… watching them transition to the next level!
 
StuCo Dance
Lace up your dancin' shoes Royals! This Friday is our last school dance of the year... Summer Luau Style! Bring your lei's, hula skirts, and dance moves with you, as we dance the night away. Cost is only $3, with concessions priced at $1 a piece, and photos for $2 each. Students must be picked up no later than 5:00p!
 
Free Physicals for 2016-2017
KU Med is partnering with the Pando Initiative to bring our Royal 6th and 7th grade students FREE physicals. These physicals are at no cost to you... and done all at Hamilton Middle School. Parents must, however, complete the physical paperwork prior to the 10th. The physicals are good through the 2016-2017 school year and can be used if your student participates in athletics outside of what USD 259 has to offer. Have your student pick up their paperwork in the office!

Hamilton's Got Talent: Talent Show
On Friday, May 13th, we will be wrapping up the school year with Hamilton's yearly talent show. Our gifted students will be given the opportunity to showcase their talents, skills, and abilities. All students are welcome to participate. Have your $1 ready!

Music Concerts
The last two weeks at Hamilton will be filled with the beautiful sound of music! Kicking off the concerts is Mr. Rainwater and our lovely choir. Their concert is Thursday, May 12th, at 6:00p. The following week, we have both of Ms. Turley's Band AND Orchestra concerts, the 18th and 19th! Our students enjoy an audience, so come out to support them.

25 Book Campaign and 7th Grade Field Trip
Students that qualified and met all 25 Book Campaign Goals have qualified to participate in its end of the year incentive... a field trip to Wichita Ice Center on May 16th! Congratulations to all students that stepped up and accepted the challenge to read! Also, our 7th graders will be venturing out the the Sedgwick County Zoo on the 17th! Permission slips must be signed and turned back in, prior to the day of the field trip.

PARTY PARTY PARTY
The last week of school holds lots of celebrations, activities, and parties! AVID families, and students interested in joining AVID next year are invited to attend our last AVID family night. Not only will there be fun, education, and entertainment, but they will also be conducting interviews for new AVID students so make sure that YOUR student is in attendance! We will also be having our Rock the Test Party on Wednesday, May 18th, for students that showed improvements from last assessment scores, to the ones just recently taken. Lastly, on Thursday, May 19th and Friday, May 20th... our 6th and 8th grade students will be enjoying their grade level parties at Emmanuel Baptist Church. The 19th is also the day students will be signing yearbooks. 

The Last Day of School Is Coming
As sad as we are to say, our 2015-2016 school year is coming quickly to an end. On the 17th, students will be given time to clean out their lockers. We strongly encourage students to slowly begin taking items home as early as possibly, to avoid excessive mess. We also recommend sending extra trash bags to school with your student, if you foresee lots of items coming home. Any textbooks, library books, or other supplies that have been checked out, showed be checked back in before the 17th. The last day of school is now May 20th! We enjoyed building with our students this year. For all of our 6th and 7th graders, we will see you soon! And for our transitioning 8th graders... good luck as you begin entering into adulthood!

Picture Day Follow-Up
Don't forget, it takes about 3-4 weeks for the pictures, taken April 26th, to arrive back at Hamilton. Inside the picture packet is a re-order slip that allows you to order additional photos and gifts at inter-state.com! Be on the lookout for more information.
