Community volunteer Amy Livingston, representing Recycle New Albany and Historic Northside Garden Club, visited students in the 21st Century Community Learning Center Summer Program at New Albany Elementary School on Wednesday, May 21. Livingston, along with teachers, performed a skit to show students how to reduce, reuse, and recycle. During the presentation, students learned to sort objects for recycling and decided if items could be reused. This presentation was a part of the program’s goal to provide a variety of character education and youth development lessons to students participating in the 21st Century programs.
Several students from the New Albany Elementary School 21st Century Community Learning Centers Summer Program visited the Union County Heritage Museum on Thursday, June 15. Students toured the museum and learned about local history, fossils, and Toyota. Students in the fifth grade summer reading class, as well as the Math Club, Science Club, and Writing Club participated in the field trip.
