This summer, all Hamden children and teens (up to 18 years old) can find free summer meals in several of our schools and other Hamden locations. Sandwiches, salads, fruits and milk are among the tasty food offered. Call 211 for more information or visit CTSummerMeals.org.
No one should go hungry! Please help us spread the word about this wonderful program!
We recently became aware that Mayor Leng received a viable offer for the purchase of Church Street School. Although we do not yet have full information, we want everyone in the Church Street School community to know that if this sale occurs, it will not happen until AFTER the 2019-20 school year. Church Street students will still attend Church Street School next year.
If a sale is agreed upon, we will work with Church Street students, families and staff in the next year to assure a smooth and effective transition.
We will continue to update you as we receive more information.
In addition to excelling in both state and international marketing competition and raising funds and awareness for a variety of charities, the Hamden High School DECA students also manage and operate their high school's School Store. The store specializes in designing and creating custom apparel for the high school, other schools, teams, organizations, and businesses.
The most recent ordered completed by the students was tee shirts for the Dunbar Hill Volunteer Fire Department. To the delight of the DECA members, the fire department arrived at Hamden High School to pick up their order in a fire truck. Some of the DECA students were able to pose with the firefighters for a photo with the fire truck in front of the school.
Hamden DECA would like to thank the Dunbar Hill Volunteer Fire Department for their continued support.
Hamden's ESY (Extended School Year) program will have multiple locations this summer:
- Students at Alice Peck will be at Alice Peck
- Students going into grades K-6 will be at Dunbar Hill
- Students going into grades 7-12 will be at HMS
Finals are over, field trips are done and now it's time to enjoy the warmth that summer brings! Grab a book, kick a soccer ball, grill a burger (even veggie!) and have fun with friends and family over the summer break! We'll see everyone back at school on August 26th!
