Join us for an engaging opportunity to learn about the school’s diverse programs, meet our dedicated staff, and immerse yourself in the vibrant culture of Hamilton at our Dia de los Muertos Fiesta. It’s not just an open house; it’s a celebration of learning and community, where you can envision the exciting journey that awaits you and your child at Hamilton. We look forward to sharing the spirit of education and festivity with you.

5th-Grade Shadow Days

Hamilton Middle School invites every feeder Elementary School (Southmoor, Bradley, Shoemaker, Samuels, Holm) for a shadow morning to bring the entire 5th-grade class to Hamilton. The tour includes getting to know your 6th-grade team, interactive stations, and time for lunch. This invitation is sent out the the school’s 5th grade team.

If your child is not currently attending any of the feeder schools listed above, you have the option to sign up below.


This tour is exclusively designed for students who are currently not attending a feeder elementary school (Southmoor, Shoemaker, Samuels, Holm, Bradley), and Hamilton Middle School is their designated neighborhood school. Hamilton has already invited 5th-grade classes from our feeder schools to participate in our Shadow Tour Day.


We extend a warm invitation to your 5th-grader for our Shadow Tour Day, scheduled on January 9th, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. This exclusive opportunity is specifically for students who are not attending the feeder schools listed above.
