Hamilton Action Team (HAT) is a parent group supporting Hamilton through fundraising and other volunteer activities with a commitment to make Hamilton a great school for all its students. The group was formed in March 2006 by a group of parents passionate about Hamilton, and then incorporated as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit a year later. All Hamilton parents are welcome and encouraged to join HAT in supporting our school.
HAT meets the second Wednesday of most months during the school year at 6:30 p.m. in the Hamilton library. Check the school calendar for our meeting dates.
PARENT INVOLVEMENT – YOU ARE A HUGE PART OF HAMILTON’S SUCCESS!!
Hamilton relies on you, the parents, to make the difference for our children. Your active involvement in fundraising and volunteer efforts provide crucial support to the school. Without your participation, HAT would not have the resources to provide the many different support activities for the school. These activities help raise capital dollars and also promote student, parent and community collaboration in a productive and often social setting.
VOLUNTEERS ARE ALWAYS NEEDED
Volunteers are our best asset. The more involvement and ideas we have, the more we can enrich the experience of Hamilton students. HAT depends on student, parent and community volunteers to organize fundraising activities big and small, coordinate community service projects, and host teacher appreciation week.
Interested in participating? For more information on how to get involved in HAT, whether through volunteering, donations or sponsorships, please contact HAT Involvement.
