“Parental Involvement with Intentional Purpose”
Parents, Guardians and Community Partners,
Welcome to the 2020-2021 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 caring is to be commended. Parents, your ability to educate our students during this pandemic assures me that they are confident and ready 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 succeed academically 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 may very well be virtual now, I urge you to continue to be involved in the education process of your student. Get to 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 your students’ academic pathway. My office is always open to you, feel free to contact me via phone or email.
Let’s have a safe and fantastic year!
Mrs. Kimberly R. Roach-Trice
