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.

There is still time to read, read, read! Looking for ideas for good books? Need to review the requirements for summer reading assignments? Prefer to hand write rather than log your books online and need a summer reading log to print out? Hoping to refresh those math skills or complete the math packet (for students entering 9th grade)? All this and more can be found on the Wethersfield Schools Summer Reading and Math Program Page. Please click the title for more.

Keep those brains fit! Just like exercise keeps the body fit, reading keeps the brain fit. It's important for students to read as much as possible over the summer to keep their brains in optimal condition! Students in the Wethersfield Schools are encouraged to find some great books they are interested in reading and to begin logging their summer reading titles once they've finished them in the Wethersfield Public Library Online Summer Reading Programs beginning today, June 30th. Please click the title for more.
