Principal’s Message

Dear HMS Students and Parents:

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 specifically 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 21 homeroom teachers, the unified arts team, special education teachers, an advanced learning/enrichment teacher, two reading specialists, Title One tutors and two guidance counselors, one full-time and one part-time. We also have a fine support staff consisting of special education paraprofessionals, a media specialist, school lunch and custodial staffs, and our school secretaries, that enrich our learning environment.

The Hooksett School District’s Mission and Belief Statements and the 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 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 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! Thank you as always for your support.


Stephen Harrises, Principal            Annie Kelly, Assistant Principal
