Hamilton Connects is a program created to connect, educate and support families within the Hamilton School District through free evening presentations and valuable resources.
“Being a parent is often considered one of the most challenging roles in life, requiring immense dedication, patience, and constant learning. In today’s fast-paced world, raising children comes with its own set of complexities and uncertainties,” said Hamilton High School Counselor and Hamilton Connects Coordinator Kristin Hasbrook. “Hamilton Connects offers a wealth of valuable information that parents may be eager to explore and learn more about.”
Families are invited to attend Hamilton Connects evening presentations at different school buildings throughout the school year. Most are free and only require advanced registration. Those who attend gain access to a wide range of resources and support that can help navigate the intricate journey of parenthood with confidence and knowledge.
