Third grade students recently explored the topic of "winter color" during a December Greenhouse Enrichment activity. Using a variety of evergreens, blue spruce, blue cedar berries, red stemmed dogwood, hemlock pine cones and even some "ever-yellows", they created a festive arrangement as each piece was discussed and added. All plant materials used were gathered from the school grounds and the cups were recycled from the cafeteria.
Congratulations to Matthew Cucciniello and Maggie Reardon for being the recipients of New York Jets tickets on November 29, 2015. The 6th grade students participated in the NFL Play60 Challenge for an entire month. At the conclusion of the month, the students that participated were entered into a drawing and Matthew and Maggie were chosen! They got to go on the field prior to the game as well as received a prize pack from Modells! Great Job and Congratulations!

November 11, 2015 To the editor: As a student at Allamuchy School District in Allamuchy, New Jersey, my concerns and issues are on pollution in bodies of water. One major issue is oil spills. Oil spills from an oil tanker create an oil slick that can affect areas of the ocean. Sewage that washes up onto beaches could affect the health of humans, plants, and animals. Over 70% of pollution at sea come from routine shipping and from the oil people pouring it down drains on land. I believe the solution to the problem can be solved in our society by education, laws, and economics by making people aware of the problem by banning together to organize community beach-cleaning sessions, make laws tougher for people who pollute, and the polluter should be fined a hefty penalty for them to behave in an environmentally responsible way. We can make pollution less of a problem and the world would be a better place. Teddy Schultz Jr. Allamuchy, New Jersey
