It is with great excitement and pleasure that I welcome you to the 2015-2016 school-year! This year Baltimore City Public Schools will open for students on Monday, August 31, 2015.  School will start promptly at 8 A.M. 
Our goal this year is to make sure that we meet the needs of “Every Student in Every Subject Every Day”.  As we work towards meeting our goal, we would like to invite every family member to become actively involved in their child’s education. Our staff eagerly anticipates developing a stronger partnership with you to strengthen the bond of establishing a well-rounded community school.  Please make every effort to participate in the wonderful academic programs and activities we have planned to assist our children with College and Career Readiness.  
   We thank you for your continuous support.  We promise to put forth our most dedicated efforts to help your child meet his/her maximum potential.  As your child departs for school each morning, we ask that you remind them to follow our Code of Conduct: Being on time and prepared, Leading by Example, Encouraging safe behaviors and Showing and earning respect. 
In conclusion, please know that we take our commitment to you and your child seriously.   Their safety and education are the two most important responsibilities we have.  We remain committed to providing the highest quality education and a safe school climate.  We know that it is only through a united commitment between school and home that our children and school can reach the highest potential.  We look forward to working with you and your child as we prepare them to become productive citizens.  It gives me great pleasure to serve as your child’s principal.  My staff and I are standing ready to serve you and your child and we wish you a prosperous and healthy school year. 
 Thanking you in advance for your continued support,
Ms. Hamlin
