Jennie E. Hewitt Elementary School

As you leaf through these pages of information and regulations, you may wonder, "How did it all begin?"

We must thank two factors -a wonderful lady, Jennie E. Hewitt, and a rapid growth period in Rockville Centre schools in the 1920’s. Miss Hewitt joined the school district in 1899 as a first grade teacher. She grew to become one of the best loved and most highly respected educators to serve the district.

The community, foreseeing a shortage of classrooms due to a rapid population growth in the 1920's, purchased a parcel of land on the corner of Hempstead and DeMott Avenues. The property formerly belonged to Lillian H. Funk of Schenectady, New York.

At a special meeting held January 11, 1927, a bond issue providing for the erection of a new building on the site was approved 321 to 12. Hewitt School was completed in the fall of 1928, with three tennis courts added to the playground in 1929.

With the untimely death of Jennie E. Hewitt, the new school was named in her honor. Today, you can view the plaque dedicating the school in her name in the school’s main entrance.

As Rockville Centre continued to grow, additions to Hewitt were added in October 1933 and February 1950. Our newest addition took place in 1998.
