NORTH SALEM, N.Y.— The Pequenakonck Elementary School kindergartners and the ONE CUB Kindness Initiative celebrated Earth Day on April 22 by performing acts of kindness to help the ecology of the planet.

As part of ONE CUB’s school/home connection, students brought home two green leaves which they used to write their earth-friendly acts of kindness.  PQ’s young learners recycled, saved water by turning off the faucet while they brushed their teeth, cleaned up litter and helped their parents in the garden.  After cutting the leaves out, the kindergartners brought them back to school.  Each leaf was read aloud to the class followed by a cheer for helping keep our planet clean.

All the leaves were collected and displayed on the ONE CUB tree mural, which is now flourishing with the kind acts of North Salem’s kindergartners in celebration of Earth Day and springtime!

ONE CUB’s mission is to empower students with the knowledge that they can make a difference in our world through kindness.

Putnam County highlights

Putnam County: ”Where the country begins” pretty much sums up my view every day as I traverse this beautiful area. At every turn there is a reservoir, farm, trail or the stunning vista of the Hudson Highlands. Less development and fewer traffic lights showcase nature’s bounty uniquely during each season and I never tire of taking it all in. I often stop and take pictures on my ...

More than just a book store

Hands down, it is your local independent bookstore. They have faced challenges (think “When Harry Met Sally”) and still do (um, Amazon), but those that remain have carved out ...
