The spacious lawn of the Davis Street campus was alive with musical performances, sports games, delicious food, and other activities and crafts as the Upper School community enjoyed the annual MayFest celebration.
May marks Mental Health Awareness Month and the Grade 11 Student Government hosted an activity day during assembly time to help Upper School students alleviate stress, pause for a moment of self-care, and take a well-deserved break from academics.
The art of storytelling through poetry and spoken-word evokes emotions allowing listeners to become part of the story. Standing on the stage of the Taylor Performing Arts Center with nothing but a microphone and a notebook, spoken-word poet Sarah Kay performed excerpts from her book, No Matter the Wreckage, for Upper School students and faculty as part of the Visiting Writers Series, a program supported by the Betty Lou Blumberg Endowed Chair of English. Mrs. Blumberg was also on hand in the audience and met Sarah at the conclusion of the assembly.
Hamden Hall Country Day School is a nurturing and inclusive community with a dynamic learning environment that promotes academic excellence by understanding each child and fostering their individual growth.
