Welcome to the Fred P. Hall School. We are located in the south west corner of Portland, Maine.  We currently have nearly four hundred students in grades kindergarten through five.  We are excited to be planning the design of a new Hall School set to open in September 2018.  We hope that you will use our web site to learn more about the wonderful work that we are doing with students.

Hall School Information

We have new start and end times for the 2016 -2017 school year.  Our first bell will ring at 8:50 a.m. with a second bell at 9:00 a.m. to officially begin the school day.
School will be dismissed at 3:30 p.m. each day. The only exception is Early Release Wednesdays when school will be dismissed at 2:30 p.m. Early Release Wednesdays run from October through May.

We will have staff on the playground for the supervision of students at 8:30 a.m. each morning.  Please be sure that students do not arrive prior to 8:30 a.m. as there will be no supervision on the playground. 

We will continue to have universal breakfast for all students.  All students will be able to pick up a breakfast bag each morning at the start of our school day.

5th Grade Artist Research Project with Mrs. Kendall

All grade 5 Hall students are currently completing their artist research project by making their own 12' x 12" cloth pillows. These pillows display students' own interpretation of their chosen artist's work.  This multiple week research project is a wonderful souvenir of their art experience at Hall School!

Enrichment Clusters

During fourth grade enrichment clusters on Wednesday's students are working in teams of four to design, build, and program robots. Students are challenged each week with a different building and programming task. On the final day all three groups put their designs and programs to the test. We currently have three kits and I am working with groups of 12 students. We are looking to build the robotic and programming opportunities going forward. Thank you to the PTO for their generous support in getting this program going.
