Hamden Public Schools is very proud of the work being done by our students across the district, in-person and during distance learning.

Each month Superintendent Goeler honors them with the Superintendent's Student of the Month award.

Calendar Recoginition

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 21-22 Calendar Recognition Ceremony.

Throughout the year, so many of our students and staff members at Hamden Public Schools go above and beyond. They are shining beacons of our core values and the district honors those who make our schools a better place every day.
