Upcoming District-wide Event Raises Awareness Of Post-Secondary Opportunities For Students
On Friday, February 24, 2017, in an effort to promote post-secondary education opportunities to all of the students in the Hamilton Local School District, we will be conducting our 7th annual "Future Focused Friday" themed day throughout our district by asking each student to wear clothing that represents their favorite college, university, trade, or military branch. Every employee is also participating by wearing clothing items that display the college, university, trade school, or military branch that they attended/served after graduating high school.
This program provides teachers and staff with the chance to talk about how they followed up high school graduation by extending their education through college or military service, or a combination of both. Teachers and staff are encouraged to initiate discussions with all students to find out about what they want to do when they get older and share details on how to go about reaching their career goals while exposing them to the many options available once each student graduates or receives their GED.
