Anyone who says youth doesn’t care about the world around them has never spent time with the students in the Hampton Township School District. Meaningful contributions to their community and surrounding areas always have been a top priority for Hampton students.
Listed below is a sampling of how our students help the community:
- Hampton High School and the Parent Faculty Association sponsored four blood drives last year with the Central Blood Bank. 626 units of blood were collected, potentially helping almost 2000 people! The Central Blood Bank awarded our school $4000 in scholarship money in recognition of Hampton’s great participation. This money was divided between four seniors to be used for their secondary education. More than 200 students, who were 16 years and older, donated their blood. No other schools in the area surpassed Hampton’s blood drive participation. Thanks to our students, staff, parents and community for giving the gift of life to others.
- Thanks to students who were earning their Eagle Scout badges, several schools now have outdoor classrooms; an outdoor trail between the high school and middle school also was fixed up.
- In the months of November and December 2012, students at Hampton High School raised over $5,000 in goods and money for local charity.
- The Hampton High School Interact Club, along with students at Poff Elementary School, collected over 200 items for the “Christmas in the Streets” program in December. This program provides toys to homeless children during the holidays. Students at Wyland raise money each year for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
