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.

Third graders at Emerson-Williams had a great time visiting the Wethersfield Public Library.
Twenty students gathered in the SDMS Library after school on Wednesday, May 18 to talk with and ask questions of former Atlanta Falcon football player turned sports writer Tim Green. Tim spoke about his educational journey as an English major at Syracuse University, his life in the NFL, the importance of education, and his career as a writer. He also fielded questions from aspiring SDMS authors about the process of getting published, finding an agent, and the book he's most proud of--Unstoppable. On May 19, students will have the opportunity to Skype with author Kwame Alexander, award-winning poet and novelist. The author Skypes were funded through the generosity of SDMS PAC.
Wethersfield Public School students are in the midst of taking the state SBAC Testing. The ability of our Charles Wright students to take the assessments on their classroom Chromebooks has brought our students greater comfort and familiarity with the process. The assessments were shortened this year to just one English Language Arts (ELA) assessment and two Math assessments further lowering any test anxiety.
