Principal’s Message

Dear Students and Parents:Steve

Welcome to Hooksett Memorial School! Our school programs provide third, fourth and fifth graders with opportunities for individual growth in academic, social, and emotional areas. We offer a robust academic program that is extended and enriched with numerous school wide activities, as well as co-curricular offerings. The school community is strengthened by the active involvement of parents, volunteers, and the entire school community. We are fortunate to have a beautiful learning environment designed for the upper elementary students.

Our professional and support staff seek to facilitate a 21st Century learning environment for Hooksett Memorial School students. The school is comprised of 22 homeroom teachers, the unified arts team, a media specialist, special education teachers, an advancing learning teacher, two reading specialists, Title One tutors and two guidance counselors. We also have a fine support staff consisting of special education paraprofessionals, school lunch and custodial staffs, and our school secretaries, that enrich our learning environment.

The Hooksett School District’s Mission, Belief Statements, and Core Values provide the guiding principles for our educational efforts. In order for Hooksett Memorial School to serve as a positive and effective learning environment for each child, we encourage everyone to work together as a team. We strive to deliver 21st century instruction for our 21st century learners. We believe that providing a learning environment that is conducive to all learning styles fosters varied and rigorous learning experiences. We feel it truly does “take a village to raise a child,” and are confident that the HMS staff, working with all school community members, positively influence learning outcomes. As students, parents, or residents of Hooksett, this is your school. Your participation, input, concerns, and assistance are important in helping to provide each of Hooksett’s children with the best education that meets their individual needs.

We look forward to working with you during this school year!
