Families of children who will attend kindergarten this fall at Chestnut Street School were invited to the school on April 26 for a kindergarten visitation.

Parents received a presentation from Principal Faith Tripp, who discussed the curriculum, how to prepare for kindergarten, and ways that they and their children can become familiar with the building.

While parents took notes in the gymnasium, West Hempstead’s future scholars were divided into classrooms with teachers to experience kindergarten firsthand. They spent the afternoon coloring, counting, reading and writing.

Along with the children getting a glimpse of kindergarten, parents walked away more prepared for the school year to come.
