NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - The rain did not prevent Salt Brook Elementary School from inviting New Providence High School students from across town for a day of community service on Friday.

It was the high school’s third community service trip of the year, as students previously visited the Community Food Bank of New Jersey in Hillside and Allen W. Roberts Elementary School in New Providence.

The 23 high school students on Friday’s trip took part in various field day activities such as the Bean Bag Toss, the Long Jump, and the Spoon and Golf Ball Relay. The high school students on the trip also visited two gym classes and ate lunch with third- and fourth-grade students in the cafeteria.

The event’s chair and New Providence parent Amy Reiling and New Providence High School guidance counselor Christine Noppenberger worked in conjunction to coordinate the event. It took a few months to put everything in order to make this year’s field day successful.

Reiling said that the Salt Brook students “ had a blast” this past Friday.

“I thought the day went great,” Reiling stated, “We had a little problem with rain, but regardless the Salt Brook students had a blast. The events ran well, were organized, and lots of fun.”

When New Providence High School students arrived at Salt Brook Elementary School on Friday morning at around 8:30 a.m., they were greeted with smiles from the children, parents, and faculty. In fact, a few of the high school students on the trip saw their former teachers and chitchatted about countless elementary school memories.

Reiling also believed that “the Salt Brook students loved having the high school students at school."

“The Salt Brook students loved having the high school students at school,” Reiling said. “They enjoyed playing games in the gym with them and the high school students were amazing during the field events; they were enthusiastic and participatory. All of the students that came had lots of energy and helped make the events run smoothly. It helped so much, I’m not sure if things would have run as well without them.”
