Attention 8th Graders and Parents - Class of 2021!

Next Saturday, October 29, 2016 is the second of two High School Choice Summits for families interested in applying to our eleven LBUSD high schools.  It will take place on the Liberal Arts Campus of Long Beach City College, 4901 East Carson Street, Long Beach, CA 90808 (click this link for map), from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM.

The Summit has two parts.  First, there are ticketed workshop sessions where parents and students can learn more about the goals and academic expectations of our different pathways.  

Second, there is an open exposition center that families can visit to speak with faculty, student, and parent ambassadors about their experience in each pathway.

Ticketed Workshop Sessions:  Sign Up Now!

Just click the green button on this linked page to register now for the pathway workshop sessions you want to attend.  Not all high schools are alike.  Not every high school has the best programs for a particular student!   That's why these free workshops are important!; and you'll want to sign up beforehand.  To give you an idea:

REDcards for Hamilton

If you have a Target debit or credit card, did you know that Target will donate a portion of your purchases to Hamilton? 


Screen Shot 2016-02-23 at 4.28.09 PM.png

Yes!  Our school has already received over $2,500 through this program.

Taking responsibility for a debit or credit card is serious business!  Be sure to investigate the pros and cons of any card before you apply for one.  As an example, for the Target cards, you might look here, here, here, and here

Finally, if you already have a Target card, or have decided that the benefits of having one outweigh the risks, click here or on the image above to apply.  And don't forget to enter Code 32321 to designate Hamilton MS as the beneficiary of your contributions!
