Congratulations to Rachel Bey-Burghart, the Lite Rock Teacher of the Month for January.

Mrs Bey-Burghart is a first grade teacher at South Main Street School in Pleasantville..

She was nominated by her student Derrek Doughty for her pushing her students to do their best, and for the appeal she posted about her class on Donors Choose Project which has brought in over $1500 in donations benefiting her kids.

You can read Mrs. Bey-Burghart's powerful appeal here and donate to the cause if you would like!

Mrs. Bey-Burghart wins a membership to Island Gym and a Lite Rock pizza party for her class from Capri Pizza in Northfield, and a $50 gift card to Hamilton Mall.

For submitting the nomination, Derrek Doughty is now qualified for a $2000 scholarship from Lite Rock.

Get your school involved in the Hamilton Mall’s School Spirit Challenge.

Now through April 30, 2017. Shoppers can earn points for their favorite school when they present a Hamilton Mall receipt to the Information Desk.  The school that earns the most points by April 30 will receive $5,000 from Hamilton Mall, and the first and second runners-up will receive $2,500 and $1,000, respectively.

After you have completed your shopping trip, simply take your receipts to our customer service desk to submit your receipt and earn points for your school!
