The Chestnut Street School turned 108 on Friday, Jan. 15. At the 2:45 p.m. dismissal, the bell on top of the building was rung in celebration of the long-standing school! Students were able to ring a replica bell in the front corridor of the building as well. Chestnut Street has been a staple in the West Hempstead community for over a hundred years and continues to educate kindergarten-age students each and every day.
