The Pomperaug impaCT club was recognized as a “Gold Sponsor” at the Salvation Army Annual sponsor appreciation event for their efforts.
Pomperaug ImpaCT is a student-athlete led club aiming to "impact CT" by volunteering and fundraising for the Salvation Army charity organization. The club’s mission statement is to bring both the Pomperaug and neighborhood community closer together through charitable actions as student-athlete leaders.
Since the club’s inception in the 2021-2022 school year, impaCT has raised over $11,000 and collectively volunteered over 400 hours to benefit the Waterbury Salvation Army. This school year, impaCT has officially expanded to include North Haven and Weston High Schools.

Students at PHS designed and built an electric car to compete against other schools in the statewide ElectroThon competition. Under the direction of PHS teacher Nick Napoli, the club is a comprehensive learning experience that provides a hands-on opportunity for students to learn STEM principles and have fun at the same time.
Students displayed their car at the BOE meeting earlier this week, sharing how the club was formed, how the car was built, and how the competition works. The students raced against other cars from schools across the state in October at the ElectroThon race at Lime Rock Park in Salisbury, CT. A race where the winner is determined by how far the car goes on battery power. The club will be incorporated into the curriculum through the transportation technology course next year.
