In honor of School Board Recognition Month, West Hempstead students expressed their appreciation to the district’s board of education on behalf of all students, teachers, administrators and families of the community during the board’s business meeting on Oct. 17.

Setting the tone for the meeting were members of the high school chamber orchestra and chamber choir, who performed the district’s alma mater. Following, Ryan Emmanuel-Cooke, the district’s Director of Innovative Educational Opportunities, showed a video (located at bottom of article) of students learning about what members of the West Hempstead Board of Education do for the district and expressing their gratitude for their hard work and dedication to the community.

Students then presented each board member with a canvas bag, purchased by central administration, containing a copy of the video on a flash drive, along with an oversized thank-you card and portraits of each board member that students districtwide had helped to create. The original artwork will be framed and displayed in the administration building.     

“To be a school board member means you’re investing a gret deal of time in learning, studying, growing and working together to make decisions that truly help and support our staff and students,” said Superintendent of Schools Patricia Sullivan-Kriss. “I would like to thank the school board for the service and support they have shown me, the district and our students.”
