Students and staff members from throughout the district shaved their heads for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation to raise money for childhood cancers. The Bald Eagles of West Babylon raised more than $10,000 on March 25 at Lily Flanagan’s Pub in Babylon Village.

This is the third year the Bald Eagles participated in the event and for the past two years, they have been the top fundraising team. In 2016, the team raised more than $10,000 and last year raised more than $13,000, thanks in part to the support of the Junior High School student council. Faculty members of the Bald Eagles of West Babylon team include: John Snyder (health/physical education teacher – Junior High School/Senior High School); James Fulton (art – Senior High School); Kelly Connolly (English – Senior High School); Bryan Heaton (music – Junior High School); and Dan McKeon (principal – Junior High School).
