Oakdale-Bohemia Middle School and Connetquot High School joined forces to collect hats for Operation Hat Drop, an initiative started by kindergartner Anthony D’Alessandro to collect hats for those with an autoimmune disease or who suffer from hair loss.

OBMS teacher Mr. Burger first came across Operation Hat Drop in a newspaper article. He read about Anthony D’Alessandro, a young boy from Massapequa who suffers from alopecia and who began collecting hats for children who also have an autoimmune disease.

Mr. Burger thought it would be a great opportunity to bring Anthony’s initiative to Connetquot, reaching out to OBMS’s community service club and several Connetquot High School groups to coordinate club efforts there. From his initial outreach, students excitedly got to work, collecting hats.

One of Mr. Burger’s students, Olivia Ekezian, became very involved in the drive and took it upon herself to reach out to several branches of police and several local groups for their support.

Olivia and the club’s efforts paid off as members from the Suffolk County Police Department’s K9 unit, emergency services unit, the fifth precinct and the Police Benevolent Association as well as members from the NYPD women’s lacrosse team, NYPD men’s hockey team, the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Office and Community Ambulance Company all gathered at the middle school to show their support on Feb. 8. With Anthony and his father in attendance, each group was able to meet with Anthony one-on-one and give their sizable hat donations.

At the high school, the efforts continued with the Business Honor Society, class of 2027, the Connetquot Civic Club and Connetquot Softball all collecting hats. By Feb. 16, students had collected 74 hats in total! To go along with the generous donation, each student also wrote a card with encouraging words of support.

Seventh graders in Signora Fusco’s Italian class at Oakdale-Bohemia Middle School learned all about the Italian artist, Amedeo Modigliani.

Modigliani, an early 20th century artist from northern Italy, was well-known for painting portraits of Parisian influencers while he was living in Montmartre at the turn of the century. He is best known for his unique style, interpreting his subjects with long necks, almond-shaped eyes and small lips. While working on their personal identification unit, the students had fun creating self-portraits, imitating Modigliani’s style.

OBMS National Junior Honor Society collects donations for animals in need

The Oakdale-Bohemia Middle School National Junior Honor Society was hard at work during the month of December, collecting donations of dog and cat food, treats, toys, blankets and cleaning products for the nonprofit group, Francesca’s Furry Friends.

Francesca’s Furry Friends was named after Francesca Gallo. She was passionate about helping animals in shelters during the holiday season. Francesca lost her battle with leukemia in her teens, but the tradition she started many years ago continues with the help of the OBMS NJHS and their advisor, Mrs. Senia.

Posters were hung around the school, notifying students of this important event and announcements were made by honor society members each morning. One of the members, Lila Shapiro, even made her own posters and a collection box. She visited various local businesses, asking to place the box in store. Aside from the in-school collections made by many OBMS students, Lila was very successful with this creative initiative and was able to collect and donate many items to the worthy cause.

This year, OBMS collected over a dozen large bags of dog and cat food, toys, treats, collars, leads and blankets. All of the goods were donated in Francesca’s honor to the Kent Animal Shelter, Almost Home Animal Rescue and Gatto Pups and Friends. This year's fundraiser proved to be a wonderful way to remember Francesca and her dedication to helping animals in need!
