Blues just edge out Reds in Color Day 2017. Everyone has a safe Memorial Day weekend.
Green and Healthy Schools Innovation Expo, May 31, 4-7 pm, Hosted by the Jenkintown School District – 325 Highland Avenue, Jenkintown PA, 19046
The Pennsylvania Green and Healthy Schools Partnership, in cooperation with the Jenkintown School District and sponsors – Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission and the Philip Rosenau Company – is sponsoring an Innovation Expo on May 31. The intent of the showcase is for schools and districts in Southeast Pennsylvania to display and share with their peers exciting lessons, programs and projects that promote school building efficiency, health and wellness and environmental and sustainability education.
The event is free and open to educators, students, administrators, parents and the public. Schools are registering to present their work in a science fair-like display and then circulate among the tables to learn from others from 4:00 – 6:00 pm.
The Jenkintown School District is offering a tour of their 2016 National US Department of Education, Award Winning Green Ribbon campus at 4:00 pm.
At 6:00 pm there will be a panel of experts discussing Integrated Pest Management, Asthma Triggers in Schools and the Benefits of School Gardens. Following the panel, awards will be given to exhibitors demonstrating the best innovations in Curriculum, Facilities & Grounds Management, Administrative Practices, and Student-Led Projects.
Local legislators have been invited. It will be an amazing event, the public is welcome to learn and be inspired by the next generation of environmental leaders.

On Thursday, May 18, Mrs. Hackett’s 4th period 7th graders and The Black Student Union teamed up with The Home and School Association to plant in the school garden. Students planted to encourage tradition and a sense of community connecting the activity to the reading of “Brown Girl Dreaming” by Jacqueline Woodson and African-American culture and heritage. Thank you to Sandi Spindler who volunteered to lead in the process.
