Hamden Middle School


Friday, April 13th is a half day.  School will be dismissed at 12 PM. 

Spring Break is April 16th to April 20th.  School will be closed  that week.  Enjoy the time off!

Spotlight: Career Day

Career Day is a school wide event that has happened for the past three years. Planning for the event begins in October when all students complete a survey identifying their career aspirations.

Based off of those results, about 40-50 professionals from the community are invited to come give two 30-minute presentations to students regarding their specific occupation.   This year a few of the professions highlighted were: Physicians Assistance, Engineering, Electrician, Business, Robotics, Professional Athlete, law Enforcement, and Sports Anchors.

All 894 students are hand scheduled to attend the presenter of their career choice. It is a wonderful event that allows students to hear directly from the source about a career they may choose to pursue in their future. 


The Book Fair is Coming!

Attention Students, Faculty and Parents/Guardians!

The Scholastic Book Fair is coming!  Beginning the week after April vacation (April 23rd through 27th), the HMS Media Center will be hosting a buy-one-get-one free (BOGO) fair.  This means that when making a purchase, students will have the opportunity to choose an item of equal or lesser value for FREE.

We are also offering a new, free service called eWallet: a secure, cash-free way for students to shop at our book fair.  Parents will provide students with a pre-determined spending limit, and will be charged only the amount of money that students spend.

For more information about our Book Fair, and how to set up eWallet, please visit our Book Fair Homepage.

This fair is an excellent opportunity for students to support our school and to stock up on books to read over summer vacation!
