May calendars were handed out Tuesday, April 30th.  Make sure to ask your child for it.  We have many activities going on in May at Hamlin.
Friday, May 2nd, all students in School District 125 will have an 11:15 dismissal because of a school improvement day. Bus service will be provided as usual.
Tuesday and Wednesday, May 5-7, is the White Pines trip for those students who are eligible.  Students that are not attending White Pines will report to school at the regular time each day.
On Friday, May 16th, there will be an 11:15 dismissal for ALL HAMLIN UPPER GRADE CENTER STUDENTS ONLY.  The early dismissal on this day does NOT apply to Lawn Manor or Meadow Lane schools.  8th graders will return to Hamlin at 4 P.M. on that day for their awards ceremony and dinner dance.
We will be adding four extra days to the school calendar this year to make up for the snow days that we took off.  The last day of school will be Thursday, June 12th instead of Friday, June 6th as stated on the district calendar.

If you have any questions about any of the above, feel free to contact the office.

 Hawks-Turned-Cardinals Pay a Visit!

Thank you to the Eisenhower Speech Team who visited April 29th and performed four very impressive skits for our Hamlin students and staff.  Hats off to their head coach, Mark Urban, and the team, especially our very own Hamlin alumni who are pictured above:  Paulina Martinez, Alejandra Acosta, Destiny Patino, Alexis Guadarrama, and Renee Haskins!  Hamlin is so proud!
