Members of the West Hempstead Middle School student council welcomed fifth-graders from Cornwell Avenue and George Washington elementary schools for a tour of the building on May 31.

Serving as tour guides, the student council members led groups of incoming sixth-graders through the hallways, showing them classrooms, lockers and the library, and answered questions about coursework, teachers and the student body. Afterward, the younger students participated in ice breaker activities to get to know their future peers from the other elementary schools. 

The district commends the student council members for volunteering their time to assist the incoming class and serve as familiar faces to them in the upcoming school year.
