Students at Unified Field Day event thumbnail247364

Wanting to give back to the community, Westhampton Beach High School senior Laurette Schaumloffel spearheaded a successful Unified Field Day at her school on June 2 for students in the Westhampton Beach, Hampton Bays, Southampton and East Hampton school districts.

Schaumloffel, who will be heading to Molloy College in the fall to study special education, said she formulated the idea for the field day while volunteering for her school’s Functional Academic Learning Program. She began planning the event in early September with the help of physical education teacher Conner Davis.

Schaumloffel is a member of her school’s National Honor Society and Youth to Youth Club and plays varsity soccer, lacrosse and basketball. She is also the recipient of the 2023 New York State Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance Suffolk Zone Award for her exceptional leadership and outstanding character.
