Valentine's Day special


As the school has done for the past three years, Valentine’s Day was an occasion for Oakland Beach students and faculty to give their hearts and the Heart Association a little extra attention. They took part in jumping rope and hoops for heart under the direction of physical education instructor James DeSimone who is seen swinging a skip rope. The kids, like Kaitlyn Degnan pictured here, also got to do hula-hoops. Ariana Costa found time to rest on a ball while holding a ball. Both are first graders and skipping rope is first grade teacher Janice Adamec. Last year the school placed fifth in the state raising more than $3,000 for the Heart Association. There were no fundraising requirements to participate in the Valentine’s Day activities, but as DeSimone observed, “this is a very generous community.”
