In recognition of Earth Day, more than 50 students and staff from Hampton Bays Middle School participated in the Great East End Cleanup on April 20. Students from the National Honor Society, Outstanding Willing Leaders, SADD, and Builder’s and Varsity clubs, as well as the track and field, softball and lacrosse teams, attended the cleanup with their advisers, coaches and teachers Jennifer Destefano, Deanna Devon, Jennifer Farrell, Elizabeth Lanni, Joan Moran, Marianne Pendleberry, Teresa Strano and Rich Doulos and Laurie O’Halloran, who organized the event..

“This participation shows the continuing commitment that the middle school has towards community service and the staff’s efforts at ensuring middle schoolers have service opportunities,” said Mrs. O’Halloran.

As a special treat, Southampton Town Councilman Christopher Nuzzi visited the students to thank them for their participation and inform them that they were the largest volunteer group in the Town to participate in the cleanup.
