Zoey Navarro Vasquez, a kindergarten student at the Chestnut Street School, created The Learning Wheel as part of the school’s 100th day celebration. The interactive wheel can be used to play a variety of educational games students can play, including spinning the wheel and acting out the animal it lands on while both in-person and remote students try to guess.

West Hempstead High School students in Sheila Dempsey's class celebrated Valentine’s Day by baking dog treats and selling them to members around the school. The class sold the treats to members of the staff and donated the proceeds to the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter. Great job by all!

 Members of the Dignity and Tolerance Club at West Hempstead Middle School celebrated kindness and positivity throughout the week of Feb. 7, culminating with PS I Love You day on Feb. 12. The purpose of P.S. I Love You Day is to destigmatize mental health issues and remind students that they are cared for.

“We want to let the kids know we’re here for them,” school social worker and club adviser Cari Lubliner said.

The theme for this year’s P.S. I Love You was “together we will rise.” Students created posters with QR codes that directed those who may be in need to the Long Island Crisis Center and placed positive notes throughout the building. Additionally, the school’s student council donated money for purple bracelets with special messages inside.
