Due to the presidential election primary and the need to use our schools as polling places, there will be NO SCHOOL ON APRIL 26, 2016. To make up the day, there WILL BE SCHOOL ON MAY 27, which was previously a day off for students. Please mark your calendars!

Do you have an idea for how we can make Hamden Public Schools even better? Maybe you've thought about ways to improve parent involvement, after school programs or other aspects of our school system? Our superintendent, Jody Goeler, would love to hear your thoughts- so he has created "Thursday Office Hours" every Thursday morning from 7:30-8:30. Visit the Superintendent's Office page under DISTRICT INFORMATION for details!

Family Math Night - November 4, 6:00-7:30

It's time again for Hamden's annual K-6 District Math Night on Wednesday, November 4, 2015 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM at Hamden Middle School (2623 Dixwell Avenue). Teachers from all of our elementary schools will be showing parents and children how to play math games as well as learn ways to practice at home - and have fun celebrating math learning! Please note, this event is intended for parents and their grades K through 6 children, so to ensure parents can fully participate in learning activities with their children, only K-6 children and their parents/guardians may attend. (Supervision for siblings will not be provided.) Parents are asked to pre-register for this event by submitting the registration form to their child’s classroom teacher by Friday, October 23, 2015.


A Photo Finish at the Hamden Color Fun Run!

Superintendent of Schools Jody Goeler just can't keep up with Board of Education Secretary Adam Sendroff - but they both had a fantastic time running in the Hamden 5K Color Fun Run on Saturday, September 19th. Runners were splashed with bio-paints along the route, which made the run extra fun for participants and spectators. All proceeds from the Fun Run will benefit Hamden Public Schools PTAs.
