NEW EGYPT, NJ, January 12, 2016

      Congratulations to the New Egypt Middle School “Green Machines” for winning the Lexus Eco Challenge with their “No Waste Wednesday” project!  The Lexus Eco Challenge asks middle school and high school students to improve their communities by participating in environmentally themed competitions. The "Green Machine" team members Hannah Lombardo, Michaela Weber, Sarah Weber, Charlie Devine, Julia Rice, Erik Brown, Hailey Tipton, and Alicia Spencer sought to reduce the amount of trash the school produced during lunches with their Eco Challenge project.
      To achieve their goal, the team encouraged students to recycle more and rewarded students who used reusable items like thermoses and metal water bottles during lunch. Raffle tickets were given to students who participated in the “No Waste Wednesday” lunches and prizes were awarded for each grade.  The results were impressive!  Before “No Waste Wednesday” there was about 90 pounds of garbage for each grade, and after the trash was reduced to only 32.5 pounds of garbage per grade.
      For winning the challenge, each “Green Machine” team member will receive a $875 scholarship award.  Additionally, New Egypt Middle School will receive $3,000 to help fund scholarships and our annual eco fair.

 New Egypt Middle School Welcomes NJ Watershed Ambassador into the Classroom.

Pictured here with the Ambassador are 6th graders, Emma Allen, Anna Markey and Haylee Schmick.  

 

NEW EGYPT, NJ, October 1, 2015,  


New Egypt Middle School’s sixth grade students recently hosted a special guest in the classroom.  Students in Mrs. Melchior’s, Ms. MacFarland’s and Mrs. Jacobus’ science classes participated in a unique hands-on learning experience provided by Alison McCarthy, NJ Watershed Ambassador.    


The NJ Watershed Ambassador program is sponsored by Americorps and aims to help students understand the importance of preserving and protecting NJ water supply systems.  This educational demonstration enabled students to ‘hunt’ for organisms found in local waters and classify them using a field guide.  Students were able to determine which organisms were likely to survive and which were negatively affecting our water sources.


Students were able to tie in their learning experiences to the Next Generation Science Standards highlighted in the 6th grade curriculum.  The day was filled with excitement and fun!  


“Although the program was provided at no cost, it had tremendous value,” said NEMS Science teacher, Tara Melchior.  “I plan to invite them back again next year!”


“It was a cool experience”, said NEMS student, Angie Tuma.  “I learned about still water and the interesting bugs you can find in them.”


“It was fun to find the bugs and examine them.  It was a hands-on activity about what we were learning, which made it fun” said Gavin Kincs, NEMS student.
