Hamilton Elementary School

Graduates of 1969

BRIDGING THE GAPS
Hamilton

PROLOGUE
Immediately following the graduation ceremonies the Hamilton PTA invites you and your family to attend a reception honoring the graduates. Refreshments will be served in the patio area located to the south of the cafetorium.

At approximately 8:30 a bell will be rung to indicate the beginning of the eight grade graduation dance. Please escort your graduate to the cafetorium. You are invited to view the dance preparations before leaving. The dance decorations, refreshments, and chaperoning are a result of the Hamilton PTA seventh grade parents wishing to honor the graduates and provide them with an enjoyable evening. The dance will conclude at 10:45 pm and will be released at the door to their parents.

The taking of pictures during the graduation speeches, choral readings, and singing has been found to be disturbing to the program and audience. We request that pictures be taken only during the processional, the awarding of diplomas, and the recessional.
