EDISON, NJ -- Students at The Wardlaw+Hartridge School in Edison got into the spirit of Earth Day from their homes in yet another example of distance learning. Instead of planting flowers in the school’s garden and celebrating sustainability on the W+H campus, the students did their part to celebrate our planet at home.

Lower and Middle School students participated in Earth Day challenges with a variety of activities. Students built bird feeders, planted seeds, worked in their gardens, shared positive messages and images with chalk, read books and created videos to recognize the special day.

The Wardlaw+Hartridge School (1295 Inman Ave., N. Edison) is Central Jersey’s premier PreK-12 independent school. The campus is located 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.
