Laning Avenue School successfully turned their Earth Day Celebration into a school-wide event by incorporating it into their school day on Friday, April 25.

The students rotated between several different environmental activity stations, organized by Laning’s Environmental Committee volunteers. Students watched a demonstration on water pollution and a slideshow on how to beautify the Earth. They walked away with tips on how to reduce their waste, plant more green, and ultimately leave zero footprint. Students also had a chance to plant an herb to grow in their Laning classroom.

Lastly, students were engaged in a school-wide art project. Using recycled plastic tops from containers they collected in weeks prior to the event, students worked together to adhere the tops to plywood sculptures. The result: Colorful, hand-made, one-of-a-kind artwork! This new up-cycled art will be on permanent display at Laning Avenue School. This fun and educational Earth Day celebration could not have been successful without the support of Laning’s principal, Julie DiGiacomo, and a generous donation from West Essex Building Supply.

The Laning community hopes that everyone can remember that Everyday is Earth Day!
