EDISON, NJ -- Students from Barlow Elementary School in Plainfield spent the morning of Dec. 13 visiting with Lower School students at The Wardlaw+Hartridge School in Edison. The Plainfield students were accompanied by the W+H Upper School students who have been tutoring them as part of the Project Plainfield initiative this year.

Barlow Elementary School principal Wilson Aponte joined W+H Lower School Head Silvia Davis, Director of Global Scholars Nicole Nolan and the students for a campus tour, special introductions at Upper School morning meeting, a Middle School concert dress rehearsal and activities in the second grade classrooms. Before returning to Plainfield, the group gathered for a photo in front of the tree in the main reception area.
