Mrs. Cara O’Hop’s fourth-grade class in the Pittston Area Intermediate Center enjoyed Sue Guzik, local business owner of Fly Me Home, as an Earth Day guest speaker. The students learned about “upcycling,” which is taking old items and recreating them into something with a higher value. Students also had the opportunity to share items that they “upcycled” from home. In the end, the students definitely did their part in helping keep extra trash out of our landfills.
