Spring Concerts in Full Swing at Cornwell Avenue & George Washington

Spring means the sweet sounds of music and concerts from our students!


Throughout the month of May, Cornwell Ave, George Washington, West Hempstead High School, and Middle School hold their annual spring concerts for the West Hempstead school district community.

District Related Arts Show

Did you visit the District Related Arts Show? I sure hope so because our talented students were on full display! What makes this show special is that it features the work of students from kindergarten through 12th-grade. The pieces on display include a variety of 2D and 3D media, including drawings, paintings, ceramics, printmaking, digital photography, collages, and sculpture.
