Fundraising

Help support Hampton Elementary School

As school budgets tighten as student population continues to grow, it is critical for the school PTA to advocate for full funding, quality teachers, and the resources needed for our school to thrive.  The Hampton PTA plays an important role in helping the school acquire resources, equipment and programs that enrich student learning.  Below is a sampling of activities and resources the PTA provides through membership fees, donations and fundraising capital.

AmazonSmile

AmazonSmile is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is that when customers shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com), the AmazonSmile Foundation donates 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to a designated organization. Be sure to select Hampton Elementary PTA when you sign-up for AmazonSmile!

If you are interested in purchasing shirts, shorts, sweatpants, and sweatshirts that shown off your school pride, take a look at the Hampton Elementary School Store page on Chessie Bay Apparel.

Dolphin Dreams Silent Auction and Raffle

To ensure that Hampton teachers, students and staff have everything necessary for educational success, the Hampton PTA holds a biannual auction to benefit the Dolphin Dreams Educational Foundation. Funds raised at the event are set aside and used to purchase items not provided by the school’s budget. This event is held every other year in conjunction with a fun family activity such as Movie Night.

Dolphin Depot Student Store

The Dolphin Depot is the school store. It is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:50 -9:10 a.m. The PTA manages the overall operation and budget for the school store and provides 5 th grade students with an opportunity to volunteer as workers and gain an understanding of the importance of customer service and smart business operations. Students can purchase novelty school supplies and HES items in the range of .10 ¢ to $1.50. Proceeds go to the PTA to support ongoing activities.

Hampton Wear

Show your school pride by purchasing HES apparel. Find a variety of items for sale using the store link on the PTA website. A portion of the proceeds go to support ongoing PTA activities.

HES Day with the O’s!

Come join in on the fun at the Yard with HES families and friends! As part of a spring fundraiser, the PTA annually sells tickets to an Orioles game.

Product and Restaurant Events

A series of fundraising opportunities held throughout the community in partnership with local establishments to support PTA programs. Locations may vary year-to- year. Examples include Applebee’s Pancake Dinner, Jump for HES at SkyZone and a Chipotle Dinner Night. In addition, the PTA partners with select school fundraising companies, such as Charleston Wrap or Scrips, as a way to provide the school community with various options for showing their support.

Scholastic Book Fairs

Each fall and spring, the PTA organizes annual Scholastic Book Fairs for the students. During school hours, each class visits the Book Fair and has the opportunity of purchasing books of their interest. In addition, each teacher publishes a Book Fair wish list providing families the opportunity to donate a book to enrich their child’s classroom library. A portion of the proceeds from the Book Fair will go to the PTA to support school activities.
