During the 2019-2020 school year, we will host monthly school tours. These tours are open to parents, community members and prospective students.

Summer Assignments


Our mission as a Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) at Hampden Elementary and Middle School is to promote and encourage communication between parents, teachers, administration and the community.  The PTO also sponsors and organizes fundraising and school events, which deepen our community spirit and enrich our children’s educational, social, and developmental experiences at Hampden Elementary and Middle School.

Friends of Hampden

We are looking for community members and parents who are willing to volunteer any amount of time to help keep us running! Contact us to learn more about how you can help, or to suggest an idea. We always welcome new suggestions for how best to support our school.
