Order in the Court1

Aligned with their social studies curriculum, West Hempstead Middle School seventh-graders received a special visit from Honorable Brooklyn Criminal Court Judge Karen Gopee and New York City Police Sgt. Dwayne Palmer.

The two guest speakers educated the students about the freedoms and rights that citizens of the United States have through the lens of the U.S. Constitution. Through reenactment scenarios, students further understood the laws and the duties of being a good citizen.

Following their presentation, the students participated in a question and answer session with Judge Gopee and Sgt. Palmer.

A special thank you to the West Hempstead Middle School PTSA for arranging this assembly as well as Denise Vega who was instrumental in securing these two presentators for the seventh-graders.
