Our Middle School Students Rock!

Hamden Public Works and HMS - A Wonderful Partnership!

While our middle school students learn about the environment and the importance of trees to their lives, Hamden becomes a bit greener! This video (created by HMS English teacher Kaye Colello and science teacher Danny Martins) captures some of the students’ work in developing a reclaimed portion of the Hamden Transfer Station land into an outdoor learning classroom.  The video includes the planting of a white oak (CT’s state tree) at the transfer station. This video is a finalist in the Scotties Tissues' Trees Rock Contest - eligible to win $10,000! Go Hamden!
