SUMMER READING CELEBRATION
This Friday, Sept. 19, we will celebrate all the great books we read this summer. Students should bring a beach towel and good book to say goodbye to the warm weather. Keep an eye out for World of Readers, coming up soon! (We can always use more parent volunteers for WOR. Contact Mrs. Church or Mrs. Vasseur.)
KIDS' NIGHT OUT: The 6th Grade sponsored Kids' Night Out returns Friday, Sept. 19 from 5:30-8:00 PM. It's a night of fun, food, movies and games for students in Grade 3-6. The cost is $5 and students may bring additional money for pizza and snacks at the event. Participation is "first come, first served" because space is limited. NO TICKETS WILL BE SOLD AT THE DOOR. Permission slips are available at the front office.

Families play an essential role in the education of our students. With this in mind, Hamden Public Schools has created the Hamden Family University. The HFU is a chance for parents, grandparents and others involved in raising our children to learn about topics related to parenting and educating children, as well as increase their own skills in areas like computer use, personal finance and accessing resources in our community. Click here to see the course offerings. Click here for the flyer.
Refreshments! Prizes! Free Lunch and Childcare!
We hope you will attend on October 18th for the inaugural Hamden Family University! Childcare will be available so your children ages 3-12 can learn and have fun while you do the same!
