On Friday, April 20, Churchill Road Elementary School students and staff participated in a school wide pep-rally to celebrate Earth Day. Organized by the school’s Environmental Studies Coordinator Debra Maes, 6th grade teacher Meghan Roman and Technology teacher Jordan Craig-Kuhn, the students were entertained by humorous skits performed by their teachers and other students that reminded the children of good recycling practices, cheered on a "sort the recycling" game show (won by 2nd grade teacher Joshua DeSmyter and 3rd grade teacher Jaimie Lofurno), watched a video created by 6th graders that highlighted the school’s environmentally friendly activities and programs and enjoyed song and dance routines performed by David Ericson’s third grade class and the school’s Eco-Team. During the program, the students learned that Churchill Road has reduced the amount of waste thrown out in the garbage by 90 percent.
