Coming Together for A Good Cause

The Connetquot Central School District community recently rallied together in an effort to benefit both the Friscia and Battista families, who were unfortunately hit with tragedy this school year. Hosted at Bella Bambina’s Pizzeria in Oakdale, dozens of community members attended the event, as they were able to take part in a Chinese Auction and raffle with proceeds being directly donated toward the families. Due to the overwhelming community support, more than $6,000 was raised for the families to assist with financial hardships.

An Afternoon at The Arbors

Members of Oakdale-Bohemia Middle School’s National Junior Honor Society, along with chaperone Mary McGonnell, visited the residents of The Arbors Assisted Living at Bohemia this past April. During their time with the residents, the students played bingo and afterwards shared a snack with them.

Student-artists enrolled in Danielle DePalma’s art classes at Oakdale-Bohemia Middle School recently applied their artistic talents to create two beautiful murals which now reside in the school’s hallway and library. Students Zohayr Adnan, Isabella Pusateri and Leah Strauss used some of Brazilian artist Romero Britto’s popular works such as “Mona Cat” as inspiration and then created their own representations of his pieces so that they could be admired by all.
