Principal's Message

July 28, 2022


Dear Bobcat families,


Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year at Hamilton Elementary. We know this year will be filled with learning experiences and enriching activities. We are so excited to welcome students in person to campus. I am grateful to be given the opportunity to be your principal for the second year and continue to learn about the community. 


This is my eighteenth year in Hemet Unified. I have been a teacher, English Learner Site Lead, an Assistant Principal, and now Hamilton’s Principal for the second year. I have worked at Cawston, Winchester, and Valle Vista Elementary Schools before coming to Hamilton. I have my Master’s Degree in Teaching and Technology. My passion is ensuring all students have the opportunity to learn and grow in their own capacity and with the support they need individually. At Hamilton Elementary, we will continue to implement a school-wide system of support called Positive Behavior Interventions & Support also known as PBIS. We use proactive strategies for defining teaching and supporting appropriate student behaviors. Students earn PBIS points for following school rules and can use these points to shop at our Bobcat Store. 


My husband and I have been married for 12 years and have three wonderful children ages 25, 23 and 18 years old. 


This 2022-2023 school year will be one for the books. We are currently hiring additional staff to be able to provide intervention and support, our campus is getting an upgrade, and we are also getting a new air conditioning system to provide additional comfort and support for Hamilton Bobcats. 


We will continue to follow the state guidelines as it relates to COVID safety. We will do all that we are able to support our students socially, emotionally, and academically during this school year. 


Thank you for trusting us with the education, safety, and emotional well being of your child(ren). I look forward to continuing to get to know each and every one of you better. 


Please continue to look for communication though Parent Square as well as social media.


Sincerely,

Alyssa King, Hamilton Elementary Principal
