Dear Parents,

We are excited to welcome students back to Hamilton Holmes for the 2022-2023 school year!  Our focus this year will be on “hitting the reset button”.   COVID-19 presented a great number of challenges for students, parents, and teachers.  While we cannot predict what will happen next with the pandemic, we do need to put our focus back on supporting students, teachers, and families with quality instruction and a positive school climate.  With that in mind, we are finishing up preparations to open the building to the community for Open House night on Wednesday, August 17th!  It is important that we provide people with the chance to have face to face conversations and establish positive relationships early on.  I look forward to seeing everyone on the 17th, and starting the new school year off in a great direction on the 22nd! 

On a personal note, I am looking forward to my new role as the principal at Hamilton Holmes.  For the prior 14 years, I worked at King William High School.  I spent 8 years teaching Social Studies and coaching football, and for the past 6 years I worked as an assistant principal.  I know our community values high quality education for our students, and I am excited to partner with the community to reach that goal! 

For Open House on August 17th, from 2-7 PM: Please park in the side lot by the cafeteria entrance and enter through the cafeteria doors.  We will have several stations set up for parents and students (dues, counselors, printed schedules, etc) to go through prior to meeting with teachers throughout the building.  Please also take time to complete returning student registration by following the steps below:

  • Parents of students who attended KWCPS in 2021-2022 will need to complete "Returning Student Registration" for your child(ren) using the PowerSchool Parent Portal. This will need to be completed in order for your child to be assigned to a class, receive a schedule, or be assigned to a bus route.

  • CLICK HERE to log in to the PowerSchool Parent Portal. 

  • Once you log into your child's account, click on the "Returning Student Registration" button on the left side of the screen.

  • Use the blue bar at the top of the screen to click on each child on your account. You will need to complete the forms for each child in order for all records to be updated.

  • If you have forgotten your login information or have any questions, please contact Hamilton Holmes Middle School at 804-769-3434. 

  • Thank you for your help in collecting this vital information prior to the start of the 2022-2023 school year!

An important part of student success is being present!  Please ensure your child attends school regularly and arrives on time. KWCPS updated the attendance policy for the 2022-2023 school year.  Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions about our attendance policy.

We posted a general supply list on our school website and our Facebook page.  We will share out grade-specific information as needed.  Please contact me if you have any questions.  

Thank you for your continued support of Hamilton Holmes Middle School!
