CALLING ALL VOLUNTEERS!
Are you ready to make a difference in the community where you live? If so, please join Hailey Bankowski, Mrs. Foster & INTERACT in an exciting endeavor. Hailey has been asked to be the coordinator-liaison between Palmyra High School students and the Palmyra Cove Nature Park. Hailey recently met the NJ Watershed Ambassador, Nina Odunlami to obtain some very important information about our local natural reservation. Tim Robinson from the Burlington County Soil Conservation District, the watershed ambassador in our district, Joe Traum, and Mrs. Odunlami are in the works of planning for some time in April at the Palmyra Cove Nature Park. Hailey and INTERACT are calling for volunteers so that this clean up will be successful. The cove is part of our town, so it will help with cleaning up Palmyra too! PHS staff and parents are encouraged to volunteer as well. For now, mark your calendars. The BIG CLEAN UP is slated for April 18, 2015 at 8:00 am at the cove (rain date April 25). JOIN US - MAKE A DIFFERENCE! For more information and/or volunteer sign up, please email Mrs. Foster (firstname.lastname@example.org) or see Hailey Bankowski.
