Northport Students Join in Recycling Service Effort!

Students across the Northport campus are working to do their part and conserve our earth. Fifth grade teacher, Melanie Polascak, spearheaded a campaign to bring recycling to the school. Students interested in the effort meet in Polascak’s classroom on Tuesday and Thursday mornings to organize and to work together to get twenty bins from Waste Pro. Every Tuesday morning before school, twelve interested students go across campus and bring the bins to the front of the school then they meet again on Thursday to bring the empty bins back to their designated spots. Northport is very proud of the efforts of these students and their teacher sponsor, Mrs. Polascak. Lessons like these are invaluable and service projects help instill citizenship in our students and help them learn to become good stewards of the earth and their own community.
