The West Hempstead High School Language in the Community class
celebrated Valentine’s Day by baking dog treats and selling them to
members around the school.
Made from scratch in the school’s PAES Lab, the homemade pumpkin dog
treats were made and packaged by students in Sheila Dempsey’s class.
PAES stands for “practical assessment exploration system” and will serve
as a simulated work environment for middle and high school students
with specific learning needs. The proceeds totaled more than $230 and
will be donated to the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter.
