he students of Millburn Regional Day School were delighted to attend our Third Annual Apple Festival
Apple treats were sampled and crafts were made. We thank Mr. Bob’s class for providing apple butter and crackers, Ms. Michele’s class for making apple pie, Ms. Lisa’s class for making apple turnovers, Ms. Laura for assisting students to make applesauce, and Ms. Erica for bringing apples to dip in honey for a sweet new year. Ms. Helen’s and Ms. Denise’s classes provided all the supplies needed for making apple wreaths and apple faces, while Ms. Linda and Ms. Marilyn assisted children in making apple prints. Students enjoyed playing a bingo game with the help of Ms. Lydia, and spent time coloring pictures and completing word-search pages provided by the Career Awareness Center. With the help of Ms. Amy and Ms. Val, all students placed an apple with their pictures on our “MRDS Family Apple Tree.” Ms. Helen’s class assisted with setting up tables and chairs. We thank all of those who participated in our annual event!
This grant was awarded by the Bergen County Utilities Authority in recognition of our outstanding recycling program. This is our third year receiving this prestigious award and we couldn’t be more proud. Our program has benefitted greatly from these grants, which have allowed us to purchase a new shredder for our Career Awareness Center, a greenhouse for our elective program, and a portable tent which serves as our staging area during our school-wide clean-ups.
Bergen County Executive Kathleen Donovan and representatives from the Bergen County Utilities Authority were on hand to present this award. Representing Bleshman at the Check Presentation Ceremony were students Taryn, Andrew, and Lynn; Dr. Howard Lerner, Superintendent; Tara Bohan, Supervisor of Instruction; Angela Cupo, Principal; and, Giordano Rodriguez, Community Integration Coach.
Congratulations everyone for all you do everyday to keep our environment and community clean and healthy.
