High School Readiness Index:  Are You Ready for High School?

Research shows the following factors strongly affect your chance of graduating from high school.  How well do they describe YOU?


 
  •   My Grade Point Average (GPA) is 2.5 or above.
  •   My attendance is at least 96% or better.
  •   I have no D's or F's in English/Language Arts.
  •   I have no D's or F's in math.
  •   I have not been suspended.

Q:  Why does attendance matter?
Less than half of middle school students who were absent 8 or more days in a school year ended up graduating high school.

Q:  Why does GPA matter?
Only 4% of those students who left middle school with less than a 2.0 GPA graduated high school.

Q:  Why do ELA/Math grades matter?
Only three percent of students who had D's / F's in middle school ELA and math graduated from high school.

Conclusion:  Your effort in Middle School sets the path for high school.  Do the right thing now!

With Halloween almost here, the Long Beach Press-Telegram is again launching its Scary Stories contest for Long Beach area youth. Winning entries – both stories and artwork – will be published in the Press-Telegram on Halloween. The rules are the same as last year.  There will be three age categories for stories and drawings: elementary school (K-5), middle school (grades 6-8), and high school (grades 9-12).
 

Here are the rules:

• The deadline is Monday, Oct. 15.

• All entries must be emailed, with the entrant’s name and grade, and the subject line “Scary Stories,” to: ptnews@presstelegram. Stories can be submitted in the body of the email, or as a Word attachment; drawings should be submitted in JPEG format, no larger than 5MB in size.

• Stories must be no longer than 650 words.

• Artwork must be original (no tracings).

• Entries will be judged based on imagination, creativity and theme.

• The winning entries will be published in the Press-Telegram on Oct. 31, and posted online at www.presstelegram.com/.


If you have any questions, e-mail Press-Telegram City Editor Susan Jacobs at sjacobs@scng.com or call 310-543-6110. Local teachers  – current and retired – the Press-Telegram needs your help. If you have interest in being a judge, please let them know.

    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!
