The group is hoping to raise $2,000 for the trip and is collecting solar-powered calculators, Non-electric pencil sharpeners, notebooks, folders, pens, pencils and other writing supplies, art supplies, books for children, books for children and teens, small backpacks or drawstring bags and clothing for children ages 1 to 17.

Quarter 3 Final Makeups
HCSS visited Chicopee Mayor, Mr. KOS!
Earlier this year, the Hampden Charter School of Science learned that its request for expansion had been approved. We were eager to share this good news with the students, families, and staff members that make this school so great, and we were excited to reach out to others who have supported us along the way. On Friday, March 27th, Chicopee Mayor Richard Kos happily accepted us into his office so that we could bring him the incredible news in person! Mr. Celik and Mrs. Ross invited Chicopee parents Erns Rinvil and Tanya Bolston to come along as parent representatives. Fatiha Muhammad was asked to speak on behalf of the NHS about our upcoming Haiti trip, Mert Yanbul was asked to talk on behalf of the NHS and all student athletes, Thomas Czartoryski was asked to speak on behalf of the Science Olympiad team, and Natalie Ionkin was invited to present the Mayor with a beautiful piece of framed art that she had created. We would like to thank Mayor Kos and the city of Chicopee for its support over the years as we worked towards our school's success.
NHS Proudly Announce its Community Service Trip to HAITI!
The HCSS NHS is serving not only our community but the global community. During Spring Break of 2015, students, parents, and teachers of HCSS will be visiting Haiti. The purpose of this trip is to help and support the people in need; with the focus on orphaned children in Haiti. HCSS students will have a chance to know more about other cultures, meet the local people, broaden their horizon, and get a life experiences that are not available to most.
We are going to visit orphanage houses and distribute school materials, clothes, foods, and other supplies they need. We are planning to purchase school materials, toys, and clothes here in the USA. Since, we are not allowed to bring foods to the Haiti, we need to purchase them in Haiti. We are looking for people, companies, and foundations to support us financially. If you have any resources, please let us know.
