Every year, Hamden Public Schools publishes a school calendar that distributed to all Hamden students and their families, as well as many community organizations and features art work (and in other years writing samples) from students across the district. 

Normally, these students and their art are honored in a ceremony with the Superintendent. With the climate the way it is, HPS has decided to celebrate the calendar virtually (as with everything else these days)... please join us in congratulating these talented artist and watch our 20-21 Calendar Recognition Ceremony.
