Students throughout Reinhard Early Childhood Center in the Bellmore Public School District marked Earth Day with songs, a commitment to live green and by planting fresh greenery on April 20.
Kindergarteners and first and second graders each gathered in the auditorium with their classmates, joined by their families and loved ones who excitedly cheered them on. Rising Star Leaders sang songs about the importance of caring for our environment and recited the Earth Day Pledge in which they promised to “keep our land clean.”
Second grade students then went outside to help beautify Reinhard with a new tree. Adding a new tree on Earth Day is an annual tradition for second graders, and select students had the opportunity to participate by laying a shovel-full of dirt on top of its roots. Students in pre-kindergarten also potted flowers and plants in the school courtyard. The new greenery will act as a daily reminder of the importance of living an environmentally-friendly life.
