HMS 7th graders pen 'Be the Change' editorials

Each year, seventh-grade students at Hampton Middle School are involved in an interdisciplinary unit called, “Be the Change.” This program teaches students about the importance of attention and empathy to global challenges.

Students in Mrs. Catherine Close and Mr. David Hartman’s 7th grade English classes composed editorials based on a global challenge of their choice, after understanding the background on the issues and researching them in history class.
