We are now accepting applications for Parents SEE - a 12-week leadership course where parents learn what to expect from schools, how to partner with them, and how to be a successful civic leader on education issues. Hamden Parent SEE's next cohort will begin in late January 2015. Participants in Parents SEE become part of a strong community of parents interested in learning the details, context, and strategies to promote school practices that increase achievement for all students.

Shepherd Glen Changes Planned

Hamden Board of Education Approves Changes to Improve Drop Off and Pick Up Areas at Shepherd Glen

The Board of Education recently approved a plan to improve safety and better accommodate for student drop off and pick up in front of Shepherd Glen Schoo on Skiff Street Extension.

Due to weather and other logistical obsticles, these changes cannot be implemented until Spring 2015, but Board members are committed to working with Hamden Police and other town offices and officials to assure that actions are taken to improve the current situation even before these changes can be made. A BIG thanks goes to all the parents, Board members, Hamden Public Schools' administration and other concerned citizens for their committment and efforts to resolve this important issue.

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.
