EDISON, NJ -- Students and faculty at The Wardlaw+Hartridge School in Edison continued the observance of the Global Climate Strike with a series of climate disruption awareness raising and service learning activities designed to help save the Earth.

Seventh and eighth grade students volunteered their Common Work time on Oct. 2 to participate in the middle school student government Campus Cleanup. Together, they picked up over 35 shopping bags worth of trash to beautify the school campus and stand up for our environment. Students, faculty and staff participated in a school-wide effort on Sept. 27 to save energy by keeping the lights off or very low, not using printers and having a meatless lunch day.

The Wardlaw+Hartridge School is Central Jersey’s premier PreK-12 independent school. The campus is located at 1295 Inman Ave. in North Edison, near the Scotch Plains border and just five miles from downtown Westfield. It is a private, nonsectarian, coeducational day school that prepares students to lead and succeed in a world of global interconnection. Wardlaw+Hartridge provides an educational atmosphere characterized by academic challenge, support for individual excellence, diversity, and a familial sense of community.
