The mission of the Spring Glen Elementary School PTA is to enrich every child’s learning experience by connecting the home, school, and community. We achieve this by:

  • Building a welcoming, diverse, and inclusive community among parents, students, teachers, and staff.
  • Strengthening communication between parents, the school, and the district.
  • Supporting additional opportunities available to all students.
  • Providing additional resources to the school.

Every year,‌ ‌the‌ ‌PTA‌ ‌will spend approximately $35,000 to directly benefit students – approximately $90 per student. ‌This includes:

  • $20,000‌ ‌for‌ ‌school‌ ‌and‌ ‌classroom‌ ‌support‌ ‌including in-school assemblies, ‌classroom materials, ‌playground supplies, and ‌teacher‌ ‌appreciation‌ ‌event‌s.‌ ‌ ‌
  • $6,000‌ ‌for‌ events ‌such‌ ‌as‌ ‌Art‌ ‌Night,‌ ‌Field‌ ‌Day,‌ ‌and‌ ‌Invention‌ ‌Convention.‌ ‌
  • $3,000 ‌for‌ ‌student and family support including afterschool scholarships and funds for families in need.
  • $6,000 for administration and committees, including Diversity & Inclusion.

To contribute, please donate below or make a contribution via check. Donations of any size are appreciated so please‌ ‌consider‌ ‌making‌ ‌a‌ ‌contribution‌ ‌in‌ ‌an ‌amount‌ ‌you‌ ‌can‌ ‌afford.‌ Friends and family who would like to contribute are also welcome. Thank you so much for your generous support and we look forward to seeing you at all of the PTA activities and events throughout the year!

Art Night 2020

This year’s Annual Art Night will be  “A Celebration of the Renaissance”. This event will take place on Friday; March 20, 2020 from 6:30-8:30 pm. Mr. Sullivan and the art night committee have planned over 20 wonderful hands-on art projects for Spring Glen families to enjoy.

The Art Night Committee hopes you will consider overseeing an art activity that evening.

You do not need to have any artistic flair to assist the children and families. All materials and directions will be available.

The evening will include hands on art activities, a scavenger hunt with door prizes, a fun photo opportunity, student musical performances and a display of artwork from every student in the school. There will also be food and drink to top off the fun-filled event.

Please click here to sign up to help facilitate a station that evening.

Thanking you in advance for your support.

Inviting you all to participate – Give Hamden Students more time for lunch.

Dear Spring Glen families, this is a district-wide petition to the Board of Education initiated by a Spring Glen member and fellow parent. Please help us with this effort by signing the petition. You can also help by sharing this with other Hamden parents, especially parents at other schools (and ask them to share it within their school communities). This won’t be successful if it is just a Spring Glen effort! Here is the link :

Thank you to all in advance!

An Important Message From the Spring Glen PTA

The Spring Glen PTA is looking for leaders interested in running a Diversity & Inclusion Committee. Calls have gone out at PTA meetings but there are still opportunities to get involved in roles of leadership and support. The PTA and Spring Glen School strive to be organizations that reflect, respect, and promote the strengths drawn from similarities and differences within the Hamden community, be they age, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, family structure, language and culture, socioeconomic status, etc. To get involved, contact Kristen Talwalkar at More information about tools available from the national PTA to help with diversity & inclusion initiatives can be found online at
