FAIR LAWN, NJ - Impressed by Westmoreland Elementary School's Good Will Ambassadors Club, NBC 4 New York Meteorologist Erica Grow visited the school on March 28 in conjunction with the station’s “Weather Kids” program.

"This morning's experience and live weather broadcast from Westmoreland School was an exceptional and exciting learning opportunity for our students!" Principal Christy Dell'Aglio said.

The "Weather Kids" program is designed to grow early interest in earth science and weather, according to John Durso, Jr., Vice President of Community and Communications at NBC 4.

The most exciting part? The students participated in a live telecast yesterday at 11 a.m. 

Link to the live telecast:

More than 100 fourth- and fifth-grade students learned about weather safety, toured NBC 4’s Storm Chaser weather vehicle and received certificates recognizing their completion of the course.  

Westmoreland’s application, submitted by teacher Christine Hildebrandt, was one of more than 1,000 applications received by NBC 4 New York and Telemundo 47 in conjunction with the popular program, according to Durso.

"Westmoreland was so proud to be the 13th school NBC has visited within the tri-state area as part of this awesome program," Dell'Aglio said.

Meteorologist Erica Grow shared a weather presentation with the students who learned about different types of weather phenomena, storm systems and storm safety, and had the opportunity to ask questions. 

Following the presentation, Dell'Aglio said students joined Grow outside for the live weather broadcast. Grow mentioned the Good Will Ambassador Club at the school and interviewed two of the club members.

"As part of our application for the program, we referenced this club and how much our students have accomplished to raise money and gather supplies for those who have suffered loss or devastation after an extreme weather event," Dell'Aglio said. "NBC was very impressed with this idea and chose to highlight our students’ efforts."
