A Message from the Principal

February 16, 2017

April 22nd , Earth Day – a day for us to focus on our environment
and be conscience of the many ways to make it a better place for each of us!

The New York Senate has passed many acts since 1970 (the year Earth
Day was first celebrated) to protect our earth: The Clean Air Act, Clean
Water Act and the Endangered Species Act. This year they have decided to
honor Earth Day by sponsoring a poster contest for children in Grades K-6. The
theme is “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle”, words we have been using since the days
of Kindergarten.

Although April seems like months away, it will be here before you know
it. The poster submission deadline is March 24, 2017. I would love to see
every student participate! What a great way for our school to spread the
word on the importance of recycling! Senator Boyle has agreed to display
all entries on his website and students will receive a certificate of
acknowledgement for their participation. Go to www.boyle.nysenate.gov for
details.

The contest teaches our students that helping with environmental
issues now will make a difference in their world for the future. Be
creative and show New York State and Senator Boyle that Babylon Memorial
Grade School cares about the three R’s.

Have a good weekend,

Steve Goldberg
