Appropriate clothing required during warm weather

Now that the warm weather is finally making an appearance, please keep in mind that the Hamilton School District has a dress code which prohibits spaghetti straps, short shorts and skirts, and other similar summer attire. Specific details are listed in the Marcy handbook. Also, flip flops and other loose footwear without a strap around the back of the heel, are discouraged at school as they pose a hazard on the playground, in gym class, and on steps throughout the building. Please make sure your children wear safe, appropriate clothing throughout the remainder of the school year. Thank you for your cooperation!

Congratulations, Mrs. Trawicki!

Michele Trawicki was selected the 2019 Wisconsin Elementary School Principal of the Year by the Association of Wisconsin School Administrators (AWSA). Mrs. Trawicki, who has been Marcy’s principal since 2008, was presented with the award April 5 at a surprise presentation in front of her staff, Hamilton School Board members and family.

In a written statement, AWSA Executive Director Jim Lynch characterized her as an effective school leader who is known for her ability to form strong teams of teacher-leaders who relentlessly work to raise student achievement and engage parents and families in the learning process.

Marcy nominated as National Blue Ribbon School

Marcy was recently notified that it has been nominated for the distinguished National Blue Ribbon School award. National Blue Ribbon Schools are public and non-public elementary, middle and high schools that are producing outstanding results for all students. They have demonstrated consistent excellence, and have made progress in closing gaps in student achievement.

The National Blue Ribbon Schools recognition program is part of a larger U. S. Department of Education effort to identify and disseminate knowledge about effective school leadership and promising instructional practices. A school can be nominated by the state under two categories: Exemplary High Performing School or Exemplary Achievement Gap-Closing School. Marcy qualifies for both categories, but has been nominated as an exemplary high performing school.

The application process will be completed by the end of March and notification of awards will be early September. This is an amazing honor for our community and we are very proud of our school.
