    Students with any additional help if you are not able to reach your teacher online or through a Google Hangout. (cssmith@hamilton.k12.nj.us)

    Students who were interested in the Writing Club before our remote learning can begin with journaling their daily thoughts and joining the Kuser Kat Writing Klub. 

    Parents are invited to weekly Parent Coaching Corners to provide support to Kuser families with Self/Family Care, Academic Resources, and a question and answer segment.
