Welcome to Hampstead Hill Academy!

Note from Principal Hornbeck

This is the year Kirwan has to pass! Maryland ranks number one in the nation in median household
income but we are 31st among states in the percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) spent on
education. A recent poll by Goucher College found that 76% of Marylanders would personally pay more
in taxes to improve public education. Good schools improve the lives of families, keep families in the
City, increase the earning power of skilled graduates and increase your property values. We need you
to put pressure on your elected state officials to fully fund the Kirwan Commission recommendations.
According to our partners at Strong Schools Maryland (,
“more than half of all Maryland schools, (822 out of 1,412) are now considered to be schools meeting
the standard of concentrated poverty. [Maryland] schools are tasked with off-setting the negative
impacts of poverty without the resources to provide high quality, research-based solutions.” The 2020
legislative session in Annapolis is finished in 180 days. Again, Kirwan must pass this session. You can
Principal Matt Hornbeck make a difference. Call your legislator, visit your legislator, write an opinion to submit to the Baltimore
Sun, and get at least two other people to join you at rallies this year for public education in Annapolis.
Go to the Strong Schools Maryland website to learn more about the Kirwan recommendations and why universal pre-kindergarten,
high-quality vocational training and coding/programming certificates, more funding for higher-need neighborhoods, pay that will
attract the very best teachers, and much more is going to make Maryland competitive again. Join Principal Hornbeck on HHA’s Team
of Ten working on this once-in-a-generation issue.

Hampstead Hill Academy (HHA) inspires and creates leaders in all generations of this community. As a member
institution of BUILD (Baltimoreans United in Leadership Development), Hampstead Hill Leaders including parents,
staff, administrators and students take action and get results. We have worked on getting out the vote,
understanding safety in our community, funding our schools and more. We recently created a Core Team of leaders
to listen, identify, engage, and activate all of the leaders in our school community around the issues that matter to
all of us. The Core Team attends School Family Council (SFC) meetings and is trained in the BUILD ideals of relational
power and community organizing. If you are interested in joining the team please speak with Jill Vasbinder
Morrison, HHA parent and BUILD Leader ([email protected]). Current Core Team members are Alejandra
Flores, Felicia German, Cassandra LaBella, Liz Kaplan, Lucy Mendez, Christina Luthers, Meagan VW, Matt Hornbeck,

What value does school add? How much does each student learn over the course of a year? In the fall and in the spring, all students in grades 1 – 8
will take tests called Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) in reading and math. MAP testing helps to determine your child’s instructional level
and measures their academic growth over the course of the school year. MAP is nationally normed with millions of students across the U.S.
Students will take this untimed test on a laptop or iPad in their classroom. MAP tests are unique in that they adapt to your child’s level of
performance. This significantly reduces anxiety and helps make the test a more positive experience. In addition, the tests take less class time while
providing the teacher with detailed information about each child’s performance and growth.

As test results start to roll in from the last school year, we know that
the PARCC test, based on the Common Core Standards, sets a high
bar. As a reminder, there are about 120 school days left before 3-8
grade students sit for the new MCAP test (PARCC replacement) in
reading and math. HHA students did very well on the PARCC test,
handily beating the City and State averages in all grades in reading
and math.

Delegate Adrienne Jones took over as Acting Speaker of the Maryland House of Delegates on
April 7, 2019, following the death of then-Speaker Michael Busch. On May 1st, the House of
Delegates unanimously elected Delegate Jones as Speaker of the House by a vote of 139-0, after
Delegates Maggie McIntosh (D-Baltimore City) and Dereck Davis (D-Prince George's County)
bowed out of the Speaker's race in favor of Jones. Jones is both the first female and first African-
American speaker in Maryland state history. Adrienne Jones' professional experience includes
working as Executive Director of the Office of Fair Practices and Community Affairs in Baltimore
County, Director of the Office of Minority Affairs in Baltimore County, and a part-time columnist
for The Baltimore Times. She served as Deputy Director of the Baltimore County Office of Human
Resources until her retirement from service in Baltimore County Government on June 30, 2014.
Jones attended Baltimore County Public Schools and earned her B.A. in psychology from the
University of Maryland-Baltimore County in 1976. She attended The National Security Seminar,
U.S. Army War College in 2007 and received an Honorary Doctor of Law Degree from Goucher
College in Towson, Maryland. In 2007, Jones was named for the third time one of the "Top 100
Women in Maryland" by the Daily Record, and inducted into the Circle of Excellence for Sustained
Achievement. She received both the Harriett Ross Tubman Lifetime Achievement Award and the
Living Women History Maker's Community Award in March 2010.


Please know that the breakfast and lunch menus are subject to change without notice. However,
changes are rare. In general, you can rely on the menu. The monthly menu template has been
updated to reflect that HHA has a salad bar, only serves chocolate or strawberry milk once a
month rather than every day, and serves a deli sandwich or sun butter sandwich rather than
peanut butter and jelly. Reasons for these long-standing practices at HHA include healthy eating
and nut allergies. There is a balanced meal served every day that includes a whole fruit. Thanks to
Cafeteria Manager Gwen Moore and her terrific staff for all they do each day. Our little cafeteria
serves more than 100,000 meals each school year!


National Walk to School Day is Wednesday, October 2, 2019! Walking to school promotes
student health, builds community, and has been linked to improved student performance.
In addition, it removes cars from the morning commute, reduces congestion, and benefits
the environment. Learn more at




HHA 7th grade students will participate next week (October 7th) in a life-shaping, week-long Outward Bound trip camping and hiking along the
Appalachian Trail and canoeing in the Potomac River. Special thanks to faculty leader Melissa Riorda! We expect the Outward Bound motto, “To
Serve, To Strive, and Not to Yield” will mean a great deal to the students who are on these trips this fall. See more at .


HHA 6th grade students will attend NorthBay Adventure Camp beginning Monday, October 7th. Special
thanks to faculty chaperones Kelli Poole, Katya Kleine and Jason Farber. This program is designed as a 5 day
4 night residential outdoor education program where students learn language arts, math, science and social
studies while they conduct authentic investigations of environmental issues. The NorthBay program uses
authentic environmental issue investigation to teach common core language arts and math, and next
generation science. Guiding questions are:

1. How do your actions affect your future?
2. How do your actions affect your community?
3. How do your actions affect the environment?

Each day has a science skill and character/environmental theme that help to guide students to answer these
questions. There are classes in the morning and rock climbing and activities like a giant swing in the afternoon. After dinner, campers partake in
one of NorthBay’s most unique environmental and character education components – NorthBay Live! NorthBay Live incorporates live
performances and cutting edge media to deliver a message that stresses that there is power and responsibility in our individual choices. See more

Leaders Go Places (LGP) continues for the 6th year at Hampstead Hill Academy.
The program is stronger than ever. The table included here shows the levels
of Scholarship, Citizenship and Leadership that students need to achieve in
order to qualify for LGP status. That status carries lots of tangible rewards, like
t-shirts, field trips, certificates and pins. More importantly, that status proves
a student’s contribution to our school and community, something that should
make us all proud. Each Friday, the entire middle school meets in the gym for a
community circle. Often, the circle ends with videos to celebrate the students’
accomplishments. If you are interested, you can see the video from our first
full week at

The LGP Student Committee met to make some very important decisions.
Students on the committee went through a very formal application process, which included written applications and interviews. During our first
meeting this year, the students analyzed last year’s budget to determine the best way to allocate the funds this year. Students voted on the t-shirt
design and the 1st quarter field trip. Based on their vote, we will continue our tradition of taking every student who reaches level to Hershey Park
in the Dark on Friday, November 1st. Other important dates include the first middle school dance on Wednesday, October 16th and the final first
quarter deadline of Monday, October 28th.



Lucie Purkey and Angel Brown are the announcements crew for the first part of the school year. You can hear their voices each morning direct

motions, and middle school students will explore team sports,
develop long term fitness goals and begin a fitness journal that they
will use throughout the year.



Ms. Riorda: All the students have been exploring in the garden and in Patterson
Park. The elementary students made observations in the school garden using five
of their senses. They have had the opportunity to look, smell, touch and taste
many of the plants in the garden. They even heard the crickets and the buzz of
bumble bees. Middle school students have been exploring the pond ecosystem and
making observations about the plant and animal life there. Unfortunately, they
have also observed the human impact on the pond in the form of trash found in the
water. As always, please dress your child for the weather and forgive the grass
stains they might get while exploring nature.


Ms. Burt and Mr. Cobb:

What Does the MCAP
Look Like for Your

Spend some time learning about this new state assessment for your child at the Maryland State Department of
Education at


 No gum at school. It is distracting and prevents students from reading aloud clearly.
 No smoking in or around school property. This is against the law on school property.
 No double parking or idling at drop-off and pickup. Double parking creates a dangerous situation, and you could get a $252

ticket for double parking.
 No crossing in the middle of the street. Cross your child at the corner. Do not encourage your child to get to school by

crossing in the middle of the street! This can be extremely dangerous for your child.
 Please remind your child, especially older children, that ball playing is not allowed in front of the school or on the blacktop

during school arrival and dismissal times. Also, ask them to be mindful of smaller children to avoid accidentally bumping
into them.


HHA is serious about attendance. Our talented staff cannot teach unless students attend school. There is a district-wide focus on student
attendance. Again this year, there will be mandatory hearings at school headquarters for the parents of students with poor attendance. Each

month, the newsletter will include this chart so students and parents can review attendance averages.

Congratulations to the 8th Grade Team for having the highest attendance average for September.
The students in this grade level will have a PTO sponsored pizza party.

if they have perfect attendance. If your child receives perfect attendance during the month of October, he/
she will receive a certificate the first week of November and will be able to redeem three incentives on the
back of the certificate. If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Seymour at [email protected]

Dear Friends and Neighbors,
We hope your families have enjoyed the first few weeks of the new school year! While the Maryland General Assembly is only in Session from
January to April, each of us have spent the last few months gearing up for the quickly approaching 2020 Legislative Session. Next year is shaping up
to be a crucial moment for public education in Maryland, both in terms of adopting an equitable funding formula, as well as around school
The work of the Kirwan Commission on Innovation and Excellence in Education is set to conclude in the next few month with the General Assembly
ultimately determining the final outcome of its recommendations next Session. These recommendations are the output of three years of work to
ensure Maryland’s education system is set up for success on par with the highest achieving systems around the globe. The five core areas for
improvement identified are:

 Early childhood education
 High quality and diverse teachers and leaders
 College and career readiness pathways
 More resources to ensure success of all students
 Governance and Accountability


Next Session will be the culmination of many years of work to ensure the best possible outcomes for our children and has only been made possible
through the advocacy of many people. We hope that you will stay engaged, learn more about the final recommendations when released, and
continue building support for this generational opportunity. There will be a forum on the Kirwan Commission's policy recommendations and how
those policy changes will impact Baltimore City Public Schools on October 24th. The forum will take place from 6-8pm at Dorothy I. Height
Elementary (2011 Linden Avenue, Baltimore, Maryland 21217). If you would like to attend, you can RSVP and complete your registration, or find
another nearby forum at

As always, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our offices if there is anything we can do. All of our contact information is below, and we look
forward to helping wherever possible.

“Many parents assume that cavities in baby teeth don't matter, because they'll be lost anyway. But
that's not true. Dental decay in baby teeth can negatively affect permanent teeth and lead to future
dental problems.”

In light of the upcoming holiday, it is important to keep in mind the importance of dental health and
hygiene. Encouraging healthy habits at a young age will set them up for a lifetime of success. “It’s OK
to eat that candy on Halloween but it’s important to have a plan,” says ADA dentist Dr. Ana Paula
Ferraz-Dougherty. Here are some tips for a healthy Halloween:

 Time it Right - eat a snack right after a meal and avoid snacking throughout the day
 Choose candy that doesn’t stay in your mouth for too long
 Have a plan for when and how much candy will be consumed
 Drink more water and avoid sugary drinks
 Brush your teeth at least twice a day
