EDISON, NJ - The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in Edison celebrated Earth Day on Friday, April 21 with a variety of special indoor and outdoor activities. 

Mrs. Bonnie Farrell, botanist and parent of Sara Reiss of Fords, and Ms. Katherine Heiss of Red Bank, third grade teacher and Coordinator of Environmental Sustainability, led the Junior Kindergarten through fifth grade in planting all sorts of wonderful plants in the garden, including pansies, tulips, and lettuces. The third graders opened the assembly in Plumeri Gym by educating the Lower School about water, our most precious resource. Second graders read poems filled with wonderful ways to protect the Earth.

First and fourth graders learned about the weather by making barometers and creating a weather station. The fifth graders and their kindergarten buddies worked together to spread awareness about Earth Day by making infomercials about how to help the earth. The second grade and the Pre-Kindergarten classes painted watering cans in art class to use in their own gardens.

Students in JK through Grade 5 participated in a mannequin challenge the previous week, during which they had to remain still for one minute while simulating green activities. The mannequin challenge video was shown during Lower School lunch.
