Students who are part of the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council had the special opportunity to present to the Board of Education during a budget workshop meeting on March 5.

The nine-member council is comprised of students from the high school, middle school, George Washington and Cornwell Avenue. To begin the meeting, each student spoke to Board trustees about opportunities they see for improvement in the district’s buildings. Items included water fountains, lockers, desks and science lab equipment.

“These students should really be commended for the hard work they put into these presentations and the courage to speak in front of administrators, the Board and community members,” said Superintendent of Schools Dan Rehman.

The next Board of Education budget workshop is scheduled for Tuesday, March 12 at 7:30 pm in the high school’s video conference room. All residents are invited to attend as the district continues its process of developing the proposed spending plan for the 2019-20 school year.

Students Construct Museum

An annual tradition at West Hempstead High School for Black History Month continued this February, when students created a museum featuring accomplishments of African Americans in U.S. history.

Michael Paul and Stephanie Withopf’s Social Studies classes designed poster boards, diagrams, dioramas, tri folds and books after researching historical figures, events and/or groups connected to Black History. Projects spotlighted the Apollo, Little Rock High School, Muhammed Ali, Chuck Berry, hip hop and many other topics and influencers.

Projects were assembled in Mr. Paul’s classroom on Feb. 14 and 15, when peers and staff members had the opportunity to tour the museum while answering questions at each stop to become further educated on Black History.

West Hempstead High School seniors Cameron Phillips and Marisa Sheehan were both recently awarded with scholarships from the Long Island Mathematics Board. They received these distinctions with plans to major in mathematics college. 

In order to qualify for these scholarships, students identified teachers that had the most influence on their study of mathematics and wrote essays that expressed their love of math.

Each student selected a current teacher at West Hempstead High School. Cameron highlighted Melissa Benson and Marisa featured Cathieann Rowland as the teachers that have provided inspiration to perform well in mathematics.

The presentation of the scholarships is scheduled to take place on March 15 at SUNY Old Westbury. The ceremony is held during the introductory ceremonies for the Long Island Mathematics Conference.

“Congratulations to both Cameron and Marisa as these scholarships help the two of them reach their goals of careers in mathematics,” said Principal James DeTommaso.
