TOMMORROW!!!! Parent Reminder: "Bullying Awareness Workshop"


Greetings Hami Family,


This has been an amazing year, and I am honored to have worked with so many families through our new Parent Center!  We are still growing, and the school in general, will have PLENTY OF VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES throughout the year!  It is my goal to start the year off in August with as many LAUSD processed volunteers as possible! Even if you have previously volunteered at Hamilton and/or currently processed at another school, you still must process. Will you help out?  Will you give of yourself on behalf of our children?  If you have a desire to volunteer, please see the attached procedures, and/or visit your Hami Parent Center.


Thanks in Advance,


Ms. Tyler

   As a school, we strive to help children pursue their dreams and reach their fullest academic potential, but we need the help of parents. Being that parents are the first teachers of our students, the Parent Center provides opportunities to help parents support their child’s learning at home and at school. The Parent Center serves as a resource to ensure partnership between the school and the parent.

  The Parent Center has brochures, pamphlets, and resource books on various topics (testing information, college admissions, parenting strategies, etc.) There is also a computer with internet access available for parents to research scholarships, explore prospective colleges and careers, and view the College Board website to apply for testing accommodations and check for important testing dates and other information.
