HEAD OF SCHOOL ANNOUNCEMENT Welcome Ms. “Mindy” Labo!
STEM Investment We are in the process of finalizing our STEM program for the 2022-2023 academic year and will be making significant investments in new coding, robotics, and engineering programs using Lego Ed Classroom, Spheros, Bee-Bot & Blue-Bot, Ozo-Bot Robot, and Apple Ipads. Supplies will be purchased by Hampstead Academy however we ask all students grades 1 - 5 to please purchase their personal Chromebook found HERE for a price of $179. All other investments and supplies will be provided by Hampstead Academy. We do have older Chromebooks on hand that may be used if this is too short of notice for Fall 2022. All students starting at grade 1 will be required to purchase the recommended Chromebook beginning Fall 2023. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
