Spring Wind 2024
April 22-26, 2024

Spring Wind week this year runs April 22nd through April 26th!
In 1972, two then-current Hempstead students, Mike Breitbach and Jim Feeney, wanted to create something to empower students and even teachers through choice and allow alternatives to the traditional classroom experiences. Together, with their hopes and dreams of creating an air of excitement, these two young men conceptualized a week of adventure, learning, and nonstop fun for all the members of the Hempstead community. Now in its 52nd year, Spring Wind still lets us have a week where we can take a break, share a few laughs, and learn something new. We hope students have a great time enjoying the 2024 Spring Wind!

Spring Wind week will end on Saturday, April 27th with our Prom dance for Juniors and Seniors in the Atrium at Clarke University, from 8-10 pm. The theme is “Enchanted Forest.”

Throughout the week, students will be in and out of classes- excused if they are signed up to attend any events- which means it will be imperative that students communicate with their teachers about missing any class work. We would like to continue this fun tradition for years to come, therefore we would like to encourage important conversations with your student(s) about being the best Mustangs we can be.
