2014 - 2015 Kearny School District HIB Grade

Daily Announcements



Franklin School received first place in the Hudson County Improvement Authority's 13th Annual Crayon Recycling contest! Kearny has participated in this contest for the past few years with many schools in our district donating their old, broken, unused crayons.

 

America Recycles Day, celebrated on November 15th each year, encourages participants to recycle, to reduce waste, to buy recycled products and to become advocates for recycling initiatives.

To date, our youngsters (in Hudson County) have collected over 11.17 tons of old, broken crayons that have been recycled into brand new “crazy-colored” crayons for their use.

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, recycling trends continue to experience positive growth as municipalities across the country implement programs that foster environmental stewardship.

"The steps that our county school children have taken through the Crayon Recycling Contest demonstrate the impact that even little measures, such as collecting a few stray crayons from around the house, can have on our environment at large," said HCIA Chief Executive Officer Norman Guerra.

Pictured are Franklin School first grade teachers Caroline Karp and Caitlyn Lowry, who headed the crayon drive.

"Celebrity Read"


“Celebrity Read,” a longstanding initiative of the United Way of Essex and West Hudson, has been designated a “Local Legacy” by the Library of Congress. This program has been expanded to include individuals from all walks of life who wish to model their love of reading and the pursuit of education as a pathway to success.  Library Media Specialist, Mrs. Marlaina Melker, along with Principal Yvonne Cali of Franklin School recruited “Celebrity” readers to visit with and read to our Kindergarten and First Grade classes.  Our guests included several of our beloved Kearny school retirees; Marlene DiPasquale, Judith Dolan, Barbara Toczko, Deborah Lowry, Jill Cressman, and Bob Cressman.  Other friends who joined us were Kearny Fire Department Chief Steve Dyl and Fireman Mark Isabella, and also special guests Caroline Manzo, Chris Manzo, and Rob Cali.


  

PBSIS and Jr. Peer to Peer joined together to collect supplies for the troops.  The school collected 20 boxes filled with supplies for the troops. Care packages will be made and shipped to the troops overseas.
