Teacher Appreciation Week

Hello Hamilton Parents,

For our second Teacher/Staff Appreciation event, the Hamilton PTO wants to help our terrific teachers and staff out by possibly providing supplies that they need to get them through to the end of the school year, and perhaps beyond. At our request, teachers and staff have made a list of supplies that they are out of or are running short on, a “wish list”.

We have turned all of the wish lists into SignUpGenius forms, and we are asking parents to donate the supplies that our teachers/staff need. Click on a teacher/unit name below and this will take you to a SignUpGenius form. If you find something you would like to provide, sign up for it, buy it, and send it to school with your child! If you need help with delivering your gift to a classroom, contact either Sarah Ripple at [email protected] or 608-334-0342, or Cathy Auger at [email protected], and we will help.

Happy Spring!
