STUDENTS CELEBRATE THE PLANET

Wantagh Elementary School first grade students reflected their vision of Earth Day while dressed in homemade shirts as they entertained parents and faculty with a concert to emphasize the importance of recycling. Under the direction of music teacher Beth Marinis, the students sang the “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” rap, “The Bag Lady” and “Going Green,” demonstrating the rhythm patterns they have been learning in music classes. They also played their hand crafted musical instruments made out of recycled materials during a STEAM lab lesson about the importance of recycling.
