The new USDA breakfast and lunch regulations have required an increase in the variety and types of nutritious foods offered to students. There has also been a national push to increase breakfast consumption in children, such as through programs like breakfast in the classroom. Wethersfield Public Schools Foods and Nutrition Services Department is interested in studying what we can do to improve student school meal participation and increase student consumption of the healthy foods being offered to them. To accomplish this, we have partnered with the Cornell Center for Behavioral Economics in Child Nutrition Programs (the B.E.N. Center) in their initiative called the Smarter Lunchrooms Movement.

Alfred W. Hanmer Elementary School

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.
