The Williston Northampton girls hockey team will be hosting Tabor Academy on Saturday, January 7, 2012 at 4:45 p.m. for the Pink in the Rink event to support breast cancer research.
“Many ice hockey teams across the country have been honoring and supporting this cause, and we are so excited to be doing the same,” said head coach Christa Talbot ’98.
Students will be raising money through a bake sale and raffles at the event. Please join us to cheer on the Wildcats as they take on rival Tabor and make a difference to a great cause!
Thanks to more than $500 in donations, students at The Williston Northampton School were able to buy Christmas presents for three families in western Massachusetts. The funds were raised during a week of fundraising efforts on campus including bake sales and the sale of bracelets for “Dress-down Day.” Students in three advisor groups worked together in the effort, baking, organizing the events, shopping, and gathering with friends for a wrapping party.
The Williston Northampton School hosted a blood drive for the American Red Cross on Monday, December 12. Seniors Alex Nunnelly (Florence, MA) and Adrian Mendoza (Santa Ana, CA) worked together to organize and recruit donors for the December blood drive.
The holiday season is a crucial time for blood donations, since demand for blood increases due to holiday travel, and supply falls because people are busy. “It’s difficult … to get donations right before the holidays, so our participation is crucial and appreciated,” says history teacher Peter Gunn, who works with students each year on the blood drive. Accroding to Gunn, Williston’s participation rate has been among the top five for highschools in Massachusetts twice in the past five years (second and fifth). Six students have received college scholarship funds as a result of the program’s success.
