Ms. Shelly Gaydos, Principal


It is with great pleasure that I say welcome back to school! I trust your time away--whether counted in days or weeks--has been enjoyable, renewing, adventurous, and interwoven with fun and relaxation.

Students, you have wonderful opportunities ahead to make a difference in your life and in the lives of your peers. Achieving your goals will take commitment and a willingness to do the work. To help you along the way, we have a talented and dedicated staff ready to assist you. Our staff, your hard work, along with informed parents and an involved community that values education, will help put you well on your way to a successful future.

Parents, together we can make this the best school year yet. You can do this by making sure your children are in the classroom, focused on learning, and celebrating success along the way. When our students succeed, we all succeed because of the contributions young minds can make to society and the communities in which they live. I hope to see you participating with your children in our school.

I wish everyone a year filled with academic achievements and numerous fun, memorable experiences, while taking in all that Hammond High Magnet School has to offer.
