Kindergarten, first, and second-grade students at Bellmore’s Charles A. Reinhard Early Childhood Center celebrated Earth Day by planting trees and flowers around their school building. Prior to the planting, kindergarten students showcased their earth-friendly creativity by parading around the auditorium for family and friends in hats made from recycled materials. Additionally, under the direction of Randi Andersen, the students performed a few songs, including “The Flowers Are Blooming.”
“Students have been learning about Earth Day and the three R’s – reduce, reuse, and recycle,” remarked Principal Clifford Molinelli. “At Reinhard, being conscious of our earth isn’t something we talk about at this time of year only, but throughout the year.” He continued by mentioning some of the ways students help the earth during the school year, including their recycling program.

In recognition of the Reinhard students’ work on behalf of the planet, Nassau County Legislator David Denenberg presented the students with ice pops to enjoy. In return, the students provided him with their ideas on ways to help the planet.
