Tour the Medieval Manor Museum

Tour the Medieval Manor Museum

Ninth graders at West Hempstead High School taught fellow students about self-sufficient living during the Middle Ages when they displayed their creative research at the school’s fourth annual Medieval Manor Museum on March 9.

In their Social Studies classes, the students learned about feudalism, manors and the daily lives of villagers, lords and farmers in the Middle Ages. They were then tasked with creating realistic replicas of manors where people could live and flourish on the land. The displays were made using posters, Styrofoam boards, food items and computer programs such as Minecraft to build manor houses, churches, farmlands, meadows and rivers.  

At the museum, fellow students viewed the projects and voted for the manor that was best suited for self-sufficient living.

Video: Love Is Universal

Love Is Universal
Love and kindness filled the hallways of West Hempstead High School as students participated in the school’s Love Is Universal Week held Feb. 6-10.

Over the five days, students, teachers and administrators engaged in activities that promoted compassion, appreciation and love for one another. They received badges for completing random acts of kindness, contributed to a paper “kindness chain” by linking kind-hearted words together, and wrote notes of appreciation to classmates and teachers during lunch periods.

The week concluded with P.S. I Love You Day named after the nonprofit organization established by sisters Brooke and Jaimie DiPalma who lost their father to suicide in 2010. Observers of the day wore purple in a display of solidarity for the organization’s causes which are to take a stance against bullying and to help end depression and prevent suicide.    

In recognition of this day, the entire student body and staff at the high school were encouraged to wear purple and participate in the “Take One – Give One” Post-It–Note activity, for which the lobby was filled with colorful Post-Its bearing messages of hope, love, empathy and compassion. Throughout the day, students were asked to take a note and keep it for themselves or give it to someone else.

Walking Through History

Walking Through History

West Hempstead High School Juniors commemorated Black History Month by creating an in–class museum to showcase the accomplishments of prominent African Americans in U.S. history.

Michael Paul’s and Stephanie Withopf’s Social Studies classes researched historical figures, events and groups that have impacted black history. Applying their research and creativity skills, the students developed exhibits using posters, trifolds, Prezi presentations, dioramas and books to highlight historical figures such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Booker T. Washington, Madam C. J. Walker, Medgar Evers and Michelle Obama.

As peers, teachers and administrators walked through the exhibits on Feb. 16 and 17, museum goers were prompted with questions about how students’ researched individuals had made a significant impact on society.

Among the visitors to the museum was Sen. Todd Kaminsky who spoke to Paul’s and Withopf’s classes about the importance of celebrating Black History Month and answered questions about his duties in office.
