We just received news from the RI Blood Center that
Portsmouth High School came out on top, once again as the #1 school in Rhode
Island for donating blood.
Not only did we have the most units of blood donated in
relation to the size of our student body, but we generated more units than any
Throughout the year Portsmouth Patriots have given of
themselves to help others. Hopefully, they learn to make regular blood donation
a part of their every day lives for many years to come.
Equally important, though, is the praise we receive
regularly from the staff at the RI Blood Center on how mature, courteous, and
respectful our students are. And this praise comes from professionals who
work in schools throughout Rhode Island. Our blood drives are organized,
quiet, and make little disruption to the school day. This is a great
example of Patriot PRIDE.
