Welcome Back to Campus!

Message from the Hamden Hall Parents’ Association

Dear Hamden Hall Families,
On behalf of the Hamden Hall Parents’ Association, we welcome you to the 2023-2024 school year! We look forward to seeing returning families and extend a special welcome to our new families.
The goal of our Parents’ Association is to connect our parent community, foster an inclusive and positive school spirit, and build relationships through our events and fundraisers – all of which ultimately benefit our entire student body.
Throughout the school year, we host a variety of traditional fundraising events which include the Thanksgiving Pie Sale, Picture Day, and Mother’s Day Plant Sale.  We also fundraise to support the Friday assemblies for our lower, middle, and upper school children.  We support and show our appreciation to the committed faculty and staff by hosting a  breakfast during staff appreciation week. We also host a beautiful reception at our Hamden Hall graduation for our families.  In addition you can find us at all the Hamden Hall home football games at the concession stand selling game day snacks to our families!  
Your support and participation are what make all of this possible, and is the reason why our Parent Community is so special.  We wish you all a wonderful start to the new school year and are looking forward to connecting with you soon!

Warm regards,

Sandy Kaliszewski
