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 : https://www.gopetition.com/petitions/give-hamden-students-enough-time-to-eat-lunch.html
Thank you to all in advance!
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 email@example.com. More information about tools available from the national PTA to help with diversity & inclusion initiatives can be found online at https://www.pta.org/home/run-your-pta/Diversity-Inclusion-Toolkit.
