Children begin a new journey in West Hempstead


Many of the kindergartners at Chestnut Street School in West Hempstead were filled many emotions that come along with your first day of school. On Sept. 4, parents accompanied their nervous, but excited children as they made their way to the entrance of the school to begin a new journey. Prepared with new backpacks and lunch bags that featured their favorite animated characters, children at Chestnut Street were ready for their first day of school.
