Hurricane Online Auction Goes Live Tonight!
Tuesday, March 20th
We had a great opportunity this year to make the Hurricane Party Auction entirely online so that all members of the community could participate. The auction is officially open as of 8pm tonight, Tuesday, March 20th, and will close at 10:30pm on Saturday, March 24th.

Take advantage of the opportunity to bid securely online, be notified when someone outbids you, and even set a max bid amount for specific items so you do not have to keep rebidding. Payments for final bid winners will be taken online as well as soon as the auction ends.

Be on the lookout for a special Newsletter with more about the Hurricane Party and Auction!

Community Listening & Planning Sessions
March 27th @ East Hamilton
Hamilton County Schools will hold a series of community listening and planning sessions this spring, as the system works with parents and the community to chart a course for the success of all children. "This will be the second round of listening sessions since I came to this community last summer and we look forward to citizens once again sharing with us their hopes and dreams for their schools and children," said Dr. Bryan Johnson, superintendent of Hamilton County Schools. "This ongoing feedback will be substantive and important toward shaping the future of our school system," Johnson added, "We came away from the first round of listening sessions with a very targeted list of key initiatives that we will work to accomplish with the community's continued support."
