Hamden Family University
Dear HMS Parents,
Hamden Public Schools is hosting its first ever Family University on Saturday, October 18, from 9am to 2pm, at Hamden Middle School. Registration forms are available in our main office. I encourage you to register early so you can be assured of getting your choice of the wonderful workshops being offered for Hamden parents! The Secretary of State, Denise Merrill, will be the guest speaker, sharing her experiences about being a parent and an advocate for children. There will also be free childcare (for children ages 3 – 12), free lunch and giveaways and raffles at this event. Come join other Hamden parents and participate in this day as schools and families work hand in hand to build student success. Registration forms can be returned to any Hamden school.
Beginning next week, Cross Country will meet only on Mondays and Wednesdays.
There will be an informational meeting for students interested in joining TSA (Technology Student Association) and VEX Robotics after school on Tuesday, September 23, in Room 164. See Mr. DelGiudice with any questions.
Students interested in joining Best Buddies are invited to attend an informational meeting on Tuesday, September 23, in Room 133.

A beginner's yoga class will be offered starting Monday, October 6. See Mrs. Perrotti for a permission slip which must be signed and returned before the first class.
