During the last week in March, Student Council, OWL club and SADD club members conducted programs for anti-bully awareness. These activities were the result of a Leadership conference they attended in the fall. Students designed a power point presentation on cyber bullying and presented this to the 6th grade. During the lunch periods the student used a “bullying hurts” theme to illicit awareness and changes in student behavior with bullying. Students decorated silhouettes of students and handed out band aids to emphasize their message.

On January 7th the 8th graders participated in the 6th annual College Awareness Day. This event was organized by Middle School Counselor Laurie O’Halloran. Twelve college students visited the 8th grade classes to talk about college life. The college students are children of staff members at the school as well as Hampton Bays High School graduates. They shared their insights and perspective about attending college. Eighth graders had an opportunity to ask questions and learned about a typical college student’s schedule, factors that go into college selection and extra-curricular experiences offered at colleges.
High School and Middle School SADD clubs combined for their annual Holiday celebration with the Seniors who reside at the Bishop Ryan apartment complex. Advisors Rich Gostic, Jeanne Polan and Laurie O’Halloran organized the event. Conversation and refreshments flowed at the gathering which was held in the community center. The afternoon ended with the students singing Holiday songs as they wished the Seniors, Happy Holidays.
On Friday December 6th student leaders from the Hampton Bays Middle School attended the Kids In Action Leadership Conference at the C.W. Post campus of Long Island University in Greenvale, N.Y. This year’s conference was an Anti-Cyber-Bullying Rally. The students were members of the Student Council and representatives of the OWL club (Outstanding Willing Leaders) and SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions). Advisors, Toni Dossiano, Jeanne Polan and Laurie O’Halloran accompanied the group. Over 35 middle schools across Long Island were represented. Various dignitaries spoke to the students. The guest speaker was Anne T. Donnelly, Nassau County Asst. D.A. She presented a program called “S.T.O. P. Then Send” that focuses on the dangers of Cyber Bullying. The students will return to the middle school and continue to spread the conference message. Students submitted an essay on the topic of Bullying Prevention and participated in the Toys for Tots fundraiser with the Marines. Students also learned some basic facts about the C.W. Post campus and were able to get a first impression of the college while there.
