Normandin Advanced Learning Program

     Attention all 5th grade families of students attending 6th grade at Normandin Middle School next year (2020-2021 school year). If you are interested in having your child participate in the Normandin Advanced Learning Program please complete the questionnaire below. If you have any questions please contact the Hayden McFadden School.

Please complete this brief questionnaire for middle school advanced learning at Normandin Middle School. We will additionally take into account a student's academic, discipline, and assessment history. We will also be requesting a recommendation from a teacher or an administrator that your child feels can best describe why advanced learning is appropriate for them. The final decision will be made by the Normandin School Principal, and parents may appeal any decision once it is provided and request to meet with the Principal to discuss their child's application.

Message from principal Morgan

Message from principal

Dear Hayden McFadden Families,

Welcome to Hayden McFadden Elementary School. As your principal, it is my sincere pleasure to work alongside our dedicated staff and community to help provide an excellent educational experience for our students. We are committed to ensuring that your children receive the best education and support to learn and grow.

At Hayden-McFadden School, we believe that students should be afforded the opportunity to be a part of a school community that fosters positive relationships, creates a safe, supportive, and respectful teaching and learning environment, and provides learning opportunities that are accessible, rigorous, and aligned to MA standards for ALL student.

Families, teachers, support staff, community members, and administration all play a part in helping our students develop academically, socially, and emotionally. Together, we can make a positive difference. A strong partnership between home and school fosters greater success for our children. We encourage parents to communicate with teachers and staff to foster a successful partnership.

I encourage you to share your ideas, concerns, or questions. I wish your family, and especially your student, great success this school year.


Principal Morgan
