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 ensure that all students are prepared for lifelong success by fostering relationships with students and the community.  We help students build upon strengths and identify areas of need. We teach students to reflect upon their own learning and make goals for the future.   

The Hanmer School community of students, parents and staff are proud of their school and continue to dedicate themselves to total school and community improvement.  We stay focused on making a difference for ourselves, our school and our world.

The Wethersfield Family Hour of Code Night
Posted 12/01/2017 11:35AM
Once again, the WHS Computer Science students would like to invite kids in grades 4 - 8 and their parents or guardians to the WHS Family Hour of Code.  The event will be in Room 402 at WHS on Thursday, December 7, from 7 - 8 PM (but you can arrive as early as 6:30 to avoid waiting in line).  This is part of the world-wide "Hour of Code" celebration happening in December.  You and your kids will be writing computer code to create colorful, noisy programs.  You don't have to know anything at all about computer code; that's the point!  We guarantee you will write your first code in ten minutes or less, and have fun doing it.  You will be assisted by current and former WHS Comp Sci students, who will help every step of the way.  We will be adding one or two new choices to the program, so if you have joined us before, please come again and see what's new.
The event is open to all employees and residents of Wethersfield, and their kids in grades 4 - 8.  (If you need / want to bring younger kids, just let us know; we can adapt!)
You can sign up by completing the form at:
You can also see the attached flyer for a more colorful invitation, here:
Hope to see you there!

Such very exciting news!!! This morning, at Emerson-Williams, we welcomed representatives from the Fund for Teachers organization as they surprised and presented Mr. Bubser Grade Six Emerson with a Summer 2018 Fellowship Grant in the amount of $5,000! This is incredibly exciting news that will benefit all of Emerson-Williams when he brings back his amazing new learning. Mr. Bubser will be studying ways we can increase the overall mathematical thinking and problem solving here at EW. He will travel to Italy (Florence and Rome); Geneva, Switzerland; and Frankfurt, Germany. While there, he will speak with experts, investigate math museums, and discover examples of historic and modern problem solving that he will bring back to us.
