“Parental Involvement with an Intentional Purpose”
Parents, Guardians and Community Partners,
Welcome to the 2021-2022 Academic School Year!
I am excited to welcome you to Hamilton! I would like to take an opportunity to say thank you to our parents and community partners! Your ability to adapt to this new culture of learning and your dedication is to be commended. Parents, your ability to educate our students during this pandemic assures me that they are confident, ready and prepared for the new school year! To our partners, thank you for your continued support. School will no longer be the same however our commitment to preparing students for life will never change
I am Kimberly Roach-Trice, your family and community specialist. My assignment at Hamilton is to increase parental involvement and build community partners that will aid in assisting parents with those needs critical to helping students reach academic success and bridging the gaps between home, school and community.
Joyce Epstein suggests that there are SIX types of involvement that will support student’s success. The steps are parenting, communication, volunteering, learning at home, decision making and collaborating with the community. I will make every effort to assist our families with the available resources to help them accomplish their goals.
Hamilton parent meetings will be virtual! I am committing to engaging with you virtually 3 times each month. There will be information for those dates and times sent home the 2nd week of school. I urge you to continue to be involved in the education process of your student. Get to know your students teacher, we welcome parental involvement. It is my hope that together we can build an academic and positive behavioral atmosphere of achievement. I look forward to meeting all parents or guardians of each student in this building! I invite you to join us as we meet to shape partnerships for successful solutions and strategies for our students. I encourage you to become a part of a students’ academic pathway. My office is always open to you, feel free to contact me via phone (314) 367-0552 or email Kimberly.firstname.lastname@example.org
Let’s have a safe and fantastic year!
Mrs. Kimberly R. Roach-Trice
