Congratulations to Hamilton students, parents, staff, and Rice Univ.'s "Coalition on Hunger & Homelessness" representatives for a great success at Hamilton's first "Sandwiches for All" Event held on Sunday, Dec. 8th, at Hamilton.
Over 80 students gathered and made 1,045 meals for Houston's homeless population--setting a record since the Coalition began holding "Sandwiches for All."

From parent, Kati Ozanic-Lemberger:
"Hamilton has been an absolutely wonderful experience for our children! The transition from Travis Elementary was flawless and we love that our neighborhood middle school is OUR school. Our son, 8th grade, has had wonderful teachers and incredible individualized attention throughout his Hamilton years. I am very impressed with the rigor that is expected from the TPSP 8th grade project. All of his teachers have paid close attention to his individual learning style and helped him reach his academic goals. Our daughter has entered 6th grade and is off to a great start! All of the teachers are top notch and I am very thankful for how the entire staff has helped our children excel and prepare for high school and beyond."
