County Special Services School District Receives Sustainable Jersey for Schools Grant


By Press Release

COURT HOUSE – Cape May County Special Services School District was awarded two $2,000 Sustainable Jersey for Schools grants.
Barbara Makoski, superintendent, stated, “We are very excited to receive a Sustainable Jersey for Schools grant for both of our schools. These funds will allow us to enhance our programs and teach important concepts to our students. Because all of our students have special needs, it is vital to actively engage them in authentic projects in order to truly learn about sustainability practices.
“At Cape May County High School, students will learn about aeroponic gardening, and actually grow food that will be prepared in our Back Porch Café Restaurant Occupations Program, a true farm to table initiative. At the elementary level, Ocean Academy students will use math, reading, and science skills to dive in and conduct waste audits, compile data, and document and make recommendations to improve our recycling program.”
