Students Pitch in For Earth Day

By Amanda Moses

On April 20th, middle school students in Gateway Intermediate School (IS) 364 acknowledged Earth Day by lending a helping hand to clean up litter in the Canarsie/East New York area.

The IS 364 Falcon Friends Green Team joined the NYC initiative, “Jr. Litter League” in Breukelen Playground in Canarsie.  For one hour the teens removed approximately 40 pounds of trash from the playground.

“Our students have been engaged in many activities to restore the earth not only during Earth Month but every month of the year.  Our Green Environmentalists will continue to clean up our neighborhood parks weekly in an effort to restore the earth that provides us with everything we need to Grow, Learn and Be healthy,” said Christina Joseph, IS 364’s Science/STEM & Special Education Teacher.
