 Every Hamilton County School Kindergarten Student to Receive Unlimited Free Passes to the Creative Discovery MuseumHamilton County Mayor Weston Wamp today announced a partnership with Hamilton County Schools and the Creative Discovery Museum to provide every family of a Hamilton County School Kindergarten student with free passes to visit the establishment. Nearly 4,000 students will receive a total of four passes to use unlimited times throughout the 2023-2024 academic year, with a June 30th expiration date.

“The future of our economy is largely connected to how well we serve our youngest citizens. Parental involvement in their children’s education is critical in paving the path for a future with endless opportunities,” said Mayor Wamp. “This partnership embodies the best of the public-private sector working together with a collective understanding that how we invest in our young people will set the tone for the workforce in the decades to come. I cherish the moments in which I can be involved in my childrens’ education, and I hope this opportunity does the same for the thousands of other Hamilton County School parents.”

This partnership was made possible by the county’s commitment to the Creative Discovery Museum in the 2024 budget, which the Hamilton County Commission unanimously passed.

“Interactive learning is a proven model that activates multiple parts of a child’s brain, which has lasting impacts on their overall intellectual development,” said Claire Stockman, Vice President of Education at the Creative Discovery Museum. “The Creative Discovery Museum is thrilled to join Hamilton County in providing thousands of students with a memorable and fun learning experience that likely would not be possible without this partnership.”

“Hamilton County Schools appreciates the Mayor's Office and Creative Discovery Museum for their work in creating this family connection and learning experience,” said HCS Superintendent Justin Robertson. “Education is a shared responsibility, and the district's commitment to collaboration with community partners continues to provide opportunities for students and families to explore learning interests and find resources. We look forward to our students enjoying this premier interactive learning experience.”

Passes will be distributed to Kindergarten classrooms across Hamilton County in the days and weeks to come.
