As a part of Earth Day celebration 2013 on April 22, Wyoming Area Earth Science classes, under the direction of Mrs. Erica Robaczewski, organized a makeover for the front entrance to the Wyoming Area Secondary Center.

The project consisted of removing debris such as leaves, garbage, dead plants, laying down new mulch and planting an attractive array of flowers. Ted Harris, of Wyoming Valley Pallet, Exeter, donated the mulch.

Mrs. Robaczewski’s students created “Earth Day Awareness” themed paper bags donated by Gerrity’s of West Pittston. The creative bags were returned to Gerrity’s and distributed to the customers on Earth Day, thus, spreading awareness within the community.

Wyoming Area Superintendent Raymond J. Bernardi recognized Mrs. Robaczewski and students at the April school board meeting.
