Ms. Margaret Zacchei, Principal

The Alfred W. Hanmer School has a stimulating environment and its setting in historic "Olde Wethersfield" offers many unique educational opportunities for children. Each year the pages of history come alive with architectural walking tours along streets lined with 17th and 18th century homes, and with on-site programs at the ancient burying grounds, Wethersfield Cove, and the Webb-Deane-Stevens Museum.

Built in 1967, Hanmer School was named in honor of Alfred Welles Hanmer (1867-1953), a community leader who served as the Director of the Comstock-Ferre Company, and as Wethersfield's First Selectman for forty-six years.

The staff is committed to providing students with a quality education.  Each year the administrative and teaching staff review students' academic strengths and weaknesses based on an in-depth review of CMT results and other assessment data, and establish school wide goals for the following year.

The Hanmer School community of students, parents and staff are proud of their school and continue to dedicate themselves to total school improvement focused upon setting high expectations for students within a supportive, motivating environment.

On Thursday, May 7th the Wethersfield Elementary Schools participated in National "Bike to School Day". All the schools had a huge turnout, with many running out of room on their bike racks for all the bikes students rode to school! Besides using the trip to school as a chance for children (and adults!) to get the physical activity they need, it's also fun, boosts the sense of community, and helps to alleviate traffic around schools. Wethersfield Schools Parent Council also used "Bike to School Day" to day as an opportunity to honor Wethersfield's school crossing guards. These men and women provide an invaluable service to the community by helping Wethersfield children get to school safely every day. Please click the title for more.

Pre-K to sixth grade students showed their love on our very own "We LOVE Webb because..." bulletin board. These are only a few hundred reasons that we love Webb School!
Photos from January 25th through January 30th.
Sixth graders at Webb began an Independent Writing Project this year under the direction of Ms. Wynne. The idea came in part from Google's practice with their employees who are are given 20% of their work week to devote themselves to an independent project that is company related. Students began by exploring a range of writing genres and finally settled on their own to try out. They are studying mentor texts, researching, drafting, and collaborating with other writers. They are creating everything from cook books to sports casts- from fantasy novels to children's books. While some students recently published their first round and are moving onto a new project, others are carrying out their writing project for the entirety of the school year. This sample is a video clip, that was made entirely by three sixth graders, that broadcasts their writing. Enjoy!
