Celebrating Earth Day

The students at the William Spyropoulos School have been celebrating Earth Day all month long! Earlier this month, the Junior and Senior Student Councils began a plastic water bottle recycling program, and grades 3-8 voted and decided to donate all of the money collected to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Spring was in the air on Monday, April 23rd, as every student celebrated Earth Day by wearing green. Every class participated in activities focusing on Mother Earth. The seventh graders, for example, helped Mrs. Prokos’ kindergarten class decorate cardboard boxes which will be reused for storage or other purposes. The first graders wore floral wreaths as they went on a nature walk, and the fifth graders decorated their classrooms with beautiful posters reminding us all to “LOVE OUR EARTH.” The fourth graders began their tadpole study, and Mrs. Orfanidis’ class decided to make a difference by collecting change to help save the rainforests. And, in Computers, Eleana Maragopoulos and Sophia Skenderis presented a PowerPoint on the dangers of pollution. It was truly fun celebrating Earth Day at our school. Please remember to REDUCE, REUSE, and RECYCLE!

A Beautiful Day for the Parade!

On Sunday, April 22nd Manhattan was a sea of blue and white. Our students had smiles on their faces and waved Greek, Cypriot, and American flags as they marched proudly down Fifth Avenue. What a beautiful day it was to be celebrating GREEK INDEPENDENCE DAY! Kαι του χρονου!
