Slam Dunk the Junk - Parsippany High

On May 10, the Parsippany High School Environmental Club organized and hosted the annual grounds cleanup: Slam Dunk the Junk-Keep Morris County Litter Free. This is a state-wide campaign and held by the New Jersey Clean Communities Program and sponsored by the Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority.

PHS Environmental Club advisors Nancy Lennon and Kelly Garbarino, club President Sean Callaghan, Vice President Daniela Rengifo Marmolejo, Secretary Caitlin Ford, and many PHS students collected garbage and beautified the school grounds for over two hours, resulting in multiple bags of garbage and recyclables being collected. Refreshments for the effort were supplied by the PHS PTSA and were very much appreciated.

The PHS Environmental Club will be receiving a $500 grant for participating in this campaign and will use the money to buy necessary equipment to further the recycling program at PHS.
