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!
NO OFFICE HOURS THIS WEEK, THURSDAY NOVEMBER 5th --- 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!

Coats For Kids - You Can Help Keep Hamden Kids Warm!

The cold weather is upon us, and once again the Hamden Rotary Club is holding its annual "Coats for Kids" program. This terrific program provides NEW coats to Hamden Public School children in need. A donation of $20 buys a new, warm coat (but any donation amount is welcome). The Rotary Club also makes it possible to donate coats in honor of someone (think holiday gifts!) and will provide to you a beautiful note card for you to mail to that special someone, describing the donation you have made in his/her honor. How cool is that? This Flyer describes the program and provides information on how to make your donation. 

Parents Supporting Educational Excellence (SEE)

Parent SEE is a parent leadership training program that will be starting soon in Hamden and open to all parents. This is a wonderful opportunity for parents to engage in dialogue with other Hamden parents and practice skills needed to effect constructive change for their child and other children’s education. It’s a FREE course that will take place on Tuesday nights from 5 – 8:30 (Jan 19 – May 3).  Dinner and child care are provided and parents who complete the program will earn a store gift card. If interested, speak with your child’s school principal or contact the program coordinator, Brenda Shuler at brendajshuler2000@yahoo.com or (203) 407-2035 ext. 28
