environmental education

Partners with Purpose

Yesterday the Junior Unit hosted students from Wissahickon Charter School-Awbury to brainstorm ways of solving problems with the pond at Awbury Arboretum. Our students were able to share their knowledge on invasive plants with the students from Wissahickon, and in return we gained knowledge on watersheds from them.

By the time Wissahickon students left, there were preliminary plans made about how best to defeat invasive plants, remove trash and pollution, and educate people about the pond and wetlands area. We will be working on these plans over the next few weeks at Awbury.

Miriam Harlan Marches

Third grade teacher Miriam Harlan, a strong proponent of our school's long-standing environmental science program since she first joined the TPS faculty in 1985, attended the Climate March in NYC this past weekend.
