HHMS Employee of the Month - Samantha Dixon S Dixon

Hamilton-Holmes Middle School announces Samantha Dixon as December’s Employee of the Month.  Ms. Dixon has served the students of Hamilton Holmes for four years, yet she has the skill set and work ethic of a veteran teacher.  When she sees a challenge or issue that needs to be addressed to improve instruction for our students or functionality of our school, she tackles the issue and “spearheads” a solution.  We commend her for her ability to seek a positive answer to every question and a true team approach to every obstacle.  She leads her department in collaborative efforts, and always keeps the best interest of our students in the forefront.  We are very thankful to have her as a member of our school team.

HHMS Employee of the Month - Christie Davis Christie Davis

Hamilton-Holmes Middle School is proud to announce that the November Employee of the Month is Mrs. Christie Davis.  Mrs. Davis has been teaching in the King William County Public School System, for thirteen years.  Her priority is to build relationships with all of her students, and she goes to great lengths to ensure that her students know that she is always an advocate for each of them.  On any given day, during each class exchange, former and current students are lined up, awaiting the opportunity to speak to her.  Sometimes they simply arrive to say hello; however, she often assists them as they work through daily middle school challenges.  When entering the cafeteria, one can often find Mrs. Davis having lunch with her students, as they share the events of their day.  We value her continuous positive energy and commitment to her students.

Rising 6th Grader Meet and Greet - August 17, 2017

Greetings New Viking Families,

It is an honor to serve as your new principal at Hamilton-Holmes Middle School!  We have a great deal in common as, together, we will begin this journey as new Vikings this 2017-2018 school year.  With that in mind, our new assistant principal, Jennifer Perry, and I would like to welcome you to Hamilton-Holmes at a Meet and Greet on August 17th, from 6:00pm-7:00pm.  This is an optional opportunity specifically designed for all rising 6th grade students and their parents.  Mrs. Perry and I wanted to offer this experience in order to answer questions that may arise with our 6th grade students.  While this experience does not take the place of Open House, it allows for the administration to provide information that is specific to sixth graders, as we know that “new beginnings” can cause some anxiety for students and parents.  We will take a tour of the school, practice with lockers, discuss common questions about a middle school schedule, and explore academic expectations for sixth grade students.  If you are interested in joining us, please RSVP by completing the  6th Grade Meet and Greet Registration Form, (https://goo.gl/forms/3mhlkFn1HO5A4qZq2) or call the school 769-3434 in order to register.  We look forward to meeting you all soon.  Best wishes for an enjoyable and relaxing summer!

HHMS Employee of the Month - Julie Peck Julie Peck

Hamilton-Holmes Middle School would like to recognize Mrs. Julie Peck as the Employee of the Month of April.  Mrs. Peck is a supportive and caring teacher who helps her students any way that she can.  She is one to never give up on her students and works hard to provide them with the tools they need to be successful in her class and beyond.  Students in Mrs. Peck’s class learn how math plays a role in their everyday life and how it impacts them.  However, the greatest impact comes from Mrs. Peck’s connect and devotion to each and every student. 

In addition to her responsibilities as a classroom teacher, Mrs. Peck also serves as a grade level leader.  Her preparation as well as her abilities to organize and plan has been instrumental in grade level events this year.  Mrs. Peck’s ongoing service and dedication makes Hamilton-Holmes Middle School a better place.  We proudly recognize Mrs. Peck as the April Employee of the Month.
