BHSU Book Drive!

In an effort to bridge the gap between our elementary and high school students, the  HHS Black and Hispanic Student Union is sponsoring a Book Drive. Through the spirit of Umoja (Unity) BHSU members will dedicate their time to read and mentor our younger HPS students. You can support this by donating African-American and multi-cultural books, pre-K through grade 5. 

For additional information, contact Mr. Lamond Battle, BHSU Advisor, or call 203-407-2040 ext. 6001

Yearbook

The cap and gown and the tassel you purchase for your senior this year will inevitably get lost in a drawer over the next few years. If you haven’t done so already, now is the time to buy a lasting memento that will grow in value each year – the 2021 Hamden High School yearbook.

Buy online with a credit card, debit card or PayPal at yearbookforever.com or visit A208 with $80 cash. Order now, so you won’t miss out when the yearbook is distributed in June, or when the class reunions start rolling around.
