Students at Adelphi Academy of Brooklyn came to school on a recent Friday wearing all sorts of crazy things on their heads, everything from balloons to buttons. And their teachers didn’t mind a bit. They were wearing strange headgear too!

It was all part of Crazy Hat Day, a celebration of all things creative and fun at the private school located at 8515 Ridge Boulevard in Bay Ridge. Students, teachers and staff members all took part. Crazy Hat Day is one of the academy’s most popular school spirit events, according to administrators.

Students of every grade level were invited to show off their most creative headgear, much of which was handmade and one-of-a-kind.

The kids sported everything from balloons to buttons to flowers on their heads as they walked through the halls and sat in their classrooms. There were plenty of Santa and cowboy hats on display as well. Participants were also treated to a “dress down” day.

“Crazy Hat Day is always a fun event at Adelphi Academy of Brooklyn,” said Head of School Iphigenia Romanos. “The students love to show off their creativity and we, as staff members, enjoy seeing their personalities shine through the colorful and unique hats they create.”

Adelphi Academy of Brooklyn is the oldest private, independent, coeducational, college-preparatory day school in the borough and one of the oldest in the nation. It was founded in 1863.

Adelphi, which received its charter from the Board of Regents of the State University of New York, has been a member of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools since 1928.
