Principal's Corner

Welcome to Hampton Elementary School!

The staff and I welcome you to an exciting school year!  We are looking forward to learning and growing as a school family. This is a year like no other.  Safety is our top priority and the well-being of every student/faculty member is important to us.  This will be a new and challenging experience for all of us as we travel this journey of hybrid and virtual learning.  Yet, we are up for the challenge! Our school staff has been working non-stop to make this a great and productive school year.  We know that we will face obstacles along the way, but there is nothing we cannot accomplish as a team.  We are in this together.
This is my sixth year as principal of this amazing school. Prior to joining the Hampton Elementary staff, I served as principal at Ben Hazel Primary for three years, a school counselor, a literacy coach, and a classroom teacher for fifteen beautiful years. I have been a part of the Hampton District One Family since 2008. I have taught first through fourth grades in neighboring school districts. I graduated from South Carolina State University with a degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. I earned a Masters Degree in Elementary and Secondary Guidance and a Masters in Administration and Supervision. I reside in Hampton with my husband and son. My son is a junior at Wade Hampton High School.  Not only have I become part of an extraordinary school family, but I am also honored to continue to work with some of the best students in our state.  

Hampton Elementary serves children in fourth through sixth grades. We provide an excellent academic program that is challenging, yet developmentally appropriate. Hampton Elementary has an outstanding teaching staff with a wealth of knowledge. We also have an excellent support staff that works in different capacities to support student learning. We seek to apply best practices in all areas. It is our goal to continue to provide an exciting learning environment for all students. “Hornet Pride” is our school's motto. We are proud of our school and the accomplishments of our students and staff members.

At Hampton Elementary School we are dedicated to continuous school improvement. We embrace each child as an individual learner and are committed to improving the academic growth of all students. As the first teachers in your child's life, we need your support and cooperation. Please feel free to share ideas and suggestions with us as together we work to create a learning environment that continues to strive for excellence. I look forward to serving the students and families of Hampton Elementary School.

With Hornet Pride,

Cassandra B. Williams, Principal
