Showing Unity from Home

Members of the West Hempstead School District painted colorful rocks with encouraging messages on them as a sign of unity during school closures.

“We wanted to visually show our togetherness in a way that was approachable and fun for all ages,” said art teacher Cassie Ross. The completed rocks were arranged in a slideshow and shared with the community. When school buildings reopen, the painted rocks will create a colorful rock garden.
