OK - so we are going to brag a little... Hamden's teacher of the year David Coss is a semi-finalist in the Connecticut Teacher of the Year competition! (There are LOTS of teachers in Connecticut's 169 school districts - so that's really something!) We are so proud of you David, and all the work done by all of our terrific teachers every day!
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!
