Parents' Association

Welcome to the 2018-2019 School Year!

Dear Parents,
 
On behalf of the Hamden Hall Parents’ Association, we would like to welcome you to Hamden Hall!
 
The goal of the Parents’ Association is to build positive school spirit and foster involvement and participation by Hamden Hall families in our very special school community. The Parents’ Association focuses on supporting school-wide initiatives and acts as a resource to help connect and involve our parents and students throughout the school year. Members of our Board attend all school functions and would be happy to answer any questions you may have about the school or the ways in which you may be able to become involved in the Parents’ Association.
 
As the school year unfolds, you will hear more about the Parents’ Association and the many exciting activities that will be taking place around campus, such as student Photo days, Homecoming, the Thanksgiving pie sale, Teacher Appreciation and the Mother’s Day plant sale.  As with all of our fundraising efforts, all proceeds from these events and others directly benefit the students. Please visit the Hamden Hall website, including the Parents’ Association page, to stay informed about what is happening at our school, including Parents’ Association meeting dates and Board opportunities.
 
Family involvement has always been an important tradition at Hamden Hall and it is one of our greatest strengths. We have found that the more you engage yourself within our community, the more rewarding your family’s experience will be. We hope you will join us at our first meeting of the year on Wednesday, September 12 at 7 p.m. in Swain Library. All parents are welcome and encouraged to attend, as we consider every parent to be a member of the Parents’ Association.
 
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or would like to learn more about how you can become involved with our dedicated group of parents.
 
Sincerely,
 
Phyllis Pari                                           Laurie Vingiano

  • Photo Retakes!

    Photo retakes are set for Tuesday, Nov. 13, in Swain Library between 8:30 and 11:30 a.m. There will be no charge if the student was absent, is new, or did not have his or her picture taken on the original photo day. Additionally, there is no charge if there was an issue with lighting or the student blinked in the original photo. If the student just wants to take another photo because he or she did not like the first one, a $10 retake fee is due when the new picture is taken. Original packages must be returned with a new completed form at the time of the retake. If a package selection is not made at this time, the lab will return the form.
