In an effort to help our students understand and be an informed member of our global community, children and staff at Shepherd Glen held a Multicultural-Day. Students prepared and displayed their research and learnings about different countries and their cultures. Pictured here are students and teachers exploring a diverse set of musical instruments from many cultures while engaging in story telling. What a great day!

Hamden students had to defend their "cockpit controller" design as part of the year-long "Sikorsky Challenge" competition. Their presentation was followed by questioning by Sikorsky engineers - and they answered all their complex questions masterfully! They also had to use their design to fly a helicopter in a flight simulator and present a storyboard that summarized all their work.
Our team did an amazing job and scored in the top three in the state - meaning that they are invited to compete at Expofest at the Oakdale Theater in Wallingford later in May. Congratulations Team Hamden! (Team pictured with statue of Igor Sikorsky)
