AwardBaltimore, Maryland, December 11, 2022 – Hampstead Hill Academy has been awarded a Top Workplaces 2022 honor by Baltimore Sun Top Workplaces. The list is based solely on employee feedback gathered through a third-party survey administered by employee engagement technology partner Energage LLC. The confidential survey uniquely measures 15 culture drivers that are critical to the success of any organization: including alignment, execution, and connection, just to name a few.

“Earning a Top Workplaces award is a badge of honor for companies, especially because it comes authentically from their employees,” said Eric Rubino, Energage CEO. “That’s something to be proud of. In today’s market, leaders must ensure they’re allowing employees to have a voice and be heard. That’s paramount. Top Workplaces do this, and it pays dividends.”

A Note from Principal Hornbeck – “Circle of Ten”

March, 2023

Please write me at principalhornbeck@hha47.org to join HHA’s new “Circle of Ten”, which will support a new statewide initiative to bring restorative practices to every school in Maryland. Depending on interest, we can certainly have more than one Circle of Ten. It’s called Restorative Schools Maryland, and I can’t wait to work on it with you. In other news, I am very proud of our entire school community for achieving a full eight year charter renewal. The BCPSS Board met in special session February 23rd to unanimously approve the CEO’s recommendation. It’s terrific to have that kind of stability. Finally, we’re in the home stretch folks. The rest of the school year will fly by. This period between winter break and spring break is great for sustained practice and the learning of new skills, making attendance super important!
