Dear Hampton Academy Families,

             From the staff at Hampton Academy, we welcome the New Year and all the challenges and possibilities it brings.  As we set goals for the second part of our school year, we hope that 2020 will bring good health and happiness to all of our students and their families.

Hampton PTA Reflections will be held in our library on Tuesday, January 7, at 6:30. Please join us on Thursday, January 16, for a spaghetti supper to support our grade 8 trip to Washington, DC. Two seating’s for dinner will be offered. Look for updated information next week.     

We use the Messenger system to send voice and/or text messages to your computer, home phone or cell phone.  As a reminder, to utilize the full functionality of this program, we must have updated home, cell and email contact information.  If you have any recent changes, please be sure to let us know as soon as possible. Information concerning inclement weather, school closure and early dismissal procedures can be found on the SAU/Hampton Academy websites.  In the event of a cancellation, you will be notified at 6:00 AM.  Occasionally, school opening will be delayed by two hours (9:37 AM instead of 7:37 AM).  An early dismissal may also be necessary, in which case students are dismissed at 11:30 AM instead of 2:22 PM.  

             As always, we encourage you to be in close contact with your child’s teacher(s) to ensure optimal growth and progress.  The Afterschool Academic Assistance program provides students with an opportunity to get a head start on homework or assistance with projects and assignments.  If you would like your child to take advantage of this opportunity, please notify your child’s teacher so a permission form can be sent home.  Late bus transportation is available for students on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.  

Ski Club begins this Friday, January 3.  We have approximately one hundred and forty students participating in this popular event.  We will be using e-mail to communicate with families regarding updates and cancellations for the program.  As a reminder, ski equipment can be dropped off in the dining hall on the mornings of Ski Club.  Please label everything!  A parent/chaperone meeting will be held the first Friday at 1:25 PM in the dining hall prior to leaving for the mountain.

The Hampton School Board is in the process of working with the Hampton Budget Committee to review the proposed 2020-2021 School District budget.  The public review is January 16, at the town hall and the Deliberative Session will be held at Hampton Academy on February 4.  All meetings begin at 7:00 PM.  The School Board is scheduled to meet January 14, at 6:30 PM, in the HA Dining Hall.  There is no school on January 20, in observance of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. A list of school and district events is listed below.

On Thursday, January 23, Winnacunnet High School is offering “Course Selection Night” for parents and students of the class of 2024, at 7:00 PM. This evening will outline the process of student transition to ninth grade at Winnacunnet.  Students and parents will learn how to select courses and what elective opportunities are available.  The class selection portal will open on Friday, January 24.  More information will follow

            The basketball and wrestling teams are currently competing and our after-school clubs are all well attended and underway.  Please check our web calendar for upcoming dates, locations and start times.  The Spelling Bee and Geography Bee competitions are also held this month.
