It’s not too late to complete your annual DPS Family Satisfaction Survey!
This year, Hamilton families are completing the survey online. You may have received a link by text or email or you can login to Parent Portal and the survey instructions will be in the upper right hand corner of your homepage. Click. Submit. It’s as easy as that!
This anonymous and confidential survey is designed to measure how well Hamilton Middle School involves families, the quality of family-school relationships and what you think about the school culture. The honest feedback you are providing will help us make positive changes at your school and across the district, helping DPS provide a better learning environment for your child.
Please come check our collection of cell phones in the Main Office if your child has had a phone confiscated or lost. Unclaimed phones will be donated after the school year to a charity.
Unclaimed items from the Hamilton Lost & Found will be donated to Clothes to Kids of Denver after the end of the school year.
All Chromebooks should now have been returned for the summer. If scholars failed to return items or the returned items are not in the expected condition some fees will apply. Fees can be paid in MySchoolBucks. More information is available HERE.
Remember that returning 6th and 7th grade students will keep their Chromebook cases at home over the summer break. The cases will be reused for the 2019/2020 school year.
Summer is quickly approaching, which is causing many of us to daydream about laying by the pool and BBQ’s with friends. The long school break can also cause many of us to panic as we try to figure out how we will keep our children safe and entertained during the summer months.

Nothing from July 18, 2019 to July 24, 2019.
