On January 3rd the 8th graders participated in the 5th Annual College Awareness Day. This event was organized by Middle School Counselor Laurie O’Halloran. Seven current 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, learn about a typical college student’s schedule, factors that go into college selection and extra-curricular experiences offered at colleges.

On Friday December 7th 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 theme was Stand Up and Speak Out Against Bullying. The students were members of the Student Council and representatives of the OWL club (outstanding willing leaders) and SADD club. 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 including the provost of LIU. The guest speaker was Keith Davis, former NFL Giant who shared his personal story about dealing with the issue of bullying. He shared some key ideas with the students, “tough times don’t last tough people do and you don’t have to be great to get started you just have to get started to be great.” Fifteen year old Lexxi Saal, singer and songwriter performed and then talked about how she spreads awareness using her website BeatitBully.com. The students will return to the middle school and continue to spread the conference message. Prior to the conference students conducted a search of the C.W Post college website and identified basic facts and features about this college. While on the campus they connected this information with their actual impressions of the school. They will use this information in future explorations of their college searches.
Members of the Hampton Bays Middle School Let’s Move Club, OWL Club (Outstanding Willing Leaders) and SADD were spurred into action after the devastation left in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

These items were included in a school wide donation drive which also included 19 boxes of food. One of the middle school teachers transported the donations to collection sites for Long Island storm victims.
