It is Monday, Jan. 6. Here are five things you need to know in Hamilton and Wenham:

1. Rain: Showers will be around on Monday, with a high temperature well into the 40s. There is also a chance of a thunderstorm and it will be foggy at times. Monday night, the temperature will drop to a low temperature of 15 degrees.

2. School: Students in the Hamilton-Wenham Regional School District return to school on Monday for the first time in two weeks. Unlike many area school districts, school was not cancelled last Thursday and Friday for the snowstorm because the holiday vacation has originally been scheduled to last two weeks. Pingree School in Hamilton goes back on Tuesday.

3. School Committee: The Hamilton-Wenham Regional School Committee meeting originally scheduled for Thursday, Jan. 2 was postponed because of the snowstorm and will now happen on Monday night at 7 p.m. in the multipurpose room at Buker Elementary School. The committee is scheduled to give final approval to 10 policies and review planned maintenance projects.

4. Vegetarians: Eurostoves in North Beverly will offer some recipe ideas for vegetarian cooking on Monday night during a class. Organizers say that the class will show “what you can do with vegetables, legumes and some dairy products.” It starts at 6:30 p.m. and is $75 per person or $150 per couple.

5. Selectmen: The Hamilton Board of Selectmen meet on Monday night at Hamilton Town Hall at 7 p.m. The complete agenda was not finalized last week because of the snowstorm, but one item is listed – the board will discuss the possibility of selling a portion of the Patton estate land for a housing development.
