Hamilton High School students Dominic Pino and Andrew Tai placed seventh of 90 teams at the 2015 Junior Varsity National History Bowl in Washington, D.C. A contribution from the Hamilton Education Foundation helped fund the students’ travel expenses.

In qualifying for national competition, the students won the Wisconsin State Junior Varsity and Varsity Championship. They also were junior varsity champions for Northern Illinois and came in second in the Illinois State Junior Varsity Championship.

The National History Bee and Bowl strives to promote history education throughout the U.S. and around the world. The fifth annual national championships included the National History Bowl, National History Bee and U.S. History Bee.

Templeton students earn State Honors

The Wisconsin School Music Association (WSMA) Middle Level State Honors Music Project invited three Templeton Middle School students to participate in the band:

  • Lisa Nuelk – clarinet;
  • Morgan Price – tenor saxophone; and
  • Holly Venkitaswaran – flute.

This is the fourth consecutive year that Templeton students have been invited. Students went through a rigorous audition process held in April and were notified of their acceptance early June. Only 300 students were chosen to participate from more than 1,200 auditions throughout the state.

When a selected student is unable to attend, students chosen to be high alternate have the opportunity to perform. Three Templeton students were selected high alternate:

  • Jason Gahr – trumpet;
  • Olivia Neils – clarinet; and
  • Jaya Suneja – clarinet.

The Wisconsin State Honors Music Project offers talented youth the opportunity to rehearse and perform with nationally-known conductors in choir, orchestra and band. All honors groups will perform October 31 at the Wisconsin State Music Conference.

District to conduct telephone survey

A random sample of 300 Hamilton School District residents will be called in June as part of a community survey. The survey is a follow-up to ones conducted previously in the district. The district conducts the survey to:

  • learn the expectations and priorities the community has for its schools;
  • understand community sentiment on critical school issues;
  • verify perceptions of satisfaction with the district’s overall performance; and
  • evaluate and plan communication.

School officials are asking community members for their cooperation if they are contacted.

“It’s important to learn the perceptions of all members in our community – including those who do and do not have children enrolled in our schools,” Public Information Coordinator Denise Dorn Lindberg said. “When contacted by one of the callers, we encourage residents to participate in the survey.”
