Dear Hampton Academy Families,     

On behalf of the staff, we would like to thank parents and students for a safe and successful school opening. Thank you to all parents who attended our Open House, grade 6 Environmental Camp meeting, the Quebec meeting, and our Competency Based Grading Overview. Also, thank you to all the parents who are supporting our fall athletic teams.

The PowerSchool parent portal is available for you to keep up with your child’s grades, assignments and announcements.  If you have not yet created an account or are having difficulty logging into your account, please call us at 926-2000 for assistance. Mid-trimester progress reports will be available the week of October 15. The first trimester marking period ends November 30. Report cards are expected on December 13. Parent conferences are scheduled for the week of November 12. Students in all grade levels should have well-established homework habits by this point. Please contact your child’s teacher if you have any questions or concerns regarding academic progress.

In observance of Columbus Day, there is no school Monday, October 8. A calendar with all release dates and holidays can be found on the SAU 90 website.

Please join us Wednesday evening, 6:30 pm, for our second competency grading/listening night.  Hampton Academy staff will be available to share grading information and answer your questions.  A third meeting has been scheduled for January 17, 2019.  As always, if you have any questions about your child’s progress, please call the school or email your child’s teacher.

On Thursday evening, October 18, at 6:30 pm, a representative from Pat’s Peak will be at Hampton Academy to answer questions and assist with online enrollment in our popular ski club program.  The program begins on Friday, January 4, and runs for five consecutive Fridays, weather permitting. The ski program relies on the support of parent chaperones; skiers and non-skiers.    

The sixth grade will travel to Camp Merrowvista in Center Tuftonboro, NH, for environmental camp the week of October 22-26.  Red Ribbon Week will be celebrated the week of October 30. Our Guidance Counselors and staff will offer a number of activities to encourage students to take the pledge to resist drugs and violence. Below is a list of October events at Hampton Academy. We will continue to use the Messenger program to communicate with families.

            There is no school on Friday, October 26, for 7th and 8th-grade students.  Staff will be setting up their classrooms in the new edition. On Monday, October 29, students and staff will be in the new addition.  Construction crews will then move into the existing building to continue the renovation of Hampton Academy.  Sixth-grade students will remain at Marston School for this school year. An open house for the community will be scheduled in November. Project completion is scheduled for August of 2019.  

Sincerely, 

David O’Connor, Principal                       Anna DeVylder, Assistant Principal
