“Our Green Team consists of 225 students who have spent the year researching and recycling plastics in many ways,” said Sharon Kernan Cumiskey, sustainability co-leader for the Green Team, adding the students also work closely with the Delran Green Team in their endeavors.

During the visit, the students showed Kim and Singleton all the activities they have been working on.

Students gave a tour of the school’s SOLACE Outdoor Classroom, which was built by Green Team students during the pandemic.
