Kindergarten class raises money to donate to Emmaus Shade Tree Fund

Civic responsibility is learned over time and through experience and at Lincoln Elementary School, Karen Gennaro’s all day kindergarten class has begun discovering the labor and the joy of community service. A recent pine cone experiment project combined class activities with Emmaus borough beautification.

Students created pine cone experiment kits which they sold to friends, family and other students. The project required the children study trees as well as construct and operate a school store. The store was built using cardboard boxes.

Declan Schoen

Q. In what grade are you?

A. I am a 2017 graduate of Emmaus High School.

Q. What was your favorite subject? Why?

A. I don’t know if I could pick just one. My two favorites, however, were probably physics and art. I really like how physics uses both logic and mathematics to solve real world problems in an almost intuitive way. As for art, I have always enjoyed expressing myself creatively through visual art and I have recently developed a strong passion for photography, which I explored through my AP Studio Art class.
