A Special Day of Learning: Over 50 Special Guests and Presenters Engage 800 Millbridge Cubs
In the classrooms, projects inspired by the Earth were the day's lesson. By mid-day, students enjoyed the winning apple in the Millbridge Apple Challenge, hosted by Nutriserve, Delran's food service provider. The big winner was Granny Smith! By the end of the day, each classroom also had a special presenter speak to them about important issues such as: pedestrian safety, eating well, saving money and resources, creating energy with solar power, our nature trails in Burlington county and how to preserve local habitats by disposing of trash in the correct place.
Each children left school, with their own seeds to plant in their community. Milkweed seeds, wildflower seeds and acorns were distributed by teachers, to continue the positive message of celebrating Mother Earth.
