Kindergarten students in Daniel Ianniello’s class at Chestnut Street School virtually met with students in Sheila Dempsey’s class at West Hempstead High School to partake in a variety of Halloween-themed activities on Oct. 30.

The two classes came together via Google Meet to play a spooky game of bingo, read a Halloween-themed book and decorate pumpkins. Principal Faith Tripp and Dr. Nichelle Rivers, director of performing, fine and culinary arts, visited the kindergarten class to join in on the festivities!

The West Hempstead School District is proud to announce that four of its high school students have been named College Board National Recognition Program Scholars. Students Oluwadolapo Babalola and Zaki Michel were both recognized with 2020-21 African American Scholar for Excellence in Academic Achievement awards, while Michael Sheehan and Nicholas Solar were honored with 2020-21 Hispanic Scholar for Excellence in Academic Achievement awards.

To be recognized through this program, students must score in the top 2.5% of PSAT/NMSQT test takers and identify as one or more of the following: African American, Hispanic American or Latin, Indigenous, or attend school in a rural area or are from a small town. During the past several months, students who submitted applications were evaluated and recognized accordingly.

“I am incredibly proud of Oluwadolapo, Zaki, Michael and Nicholas,” said West Hempstead High School Principal James DeTommaso. “This recognition will help colleges see the potential and power of their curiosity and their commitment to learning. They are outstanding role models and have raised the bar for other students to follow!”
