HELPING STUDENTS RECEIVE AN EXPERIENCE OF A LIFETIME
On Tuesday, November 12th PSEG Power Connecticut’s Vinny Fiumidinisi, Plant Manager Bridgeport Harbor Station, and Scott Sargent, Manager at BHS U5, joined 7th-grade students from Bridgeport’s Roosevelt School as they headed to Nature’s Classroom for an experience like no other. Thanks to support from PSEG Power Connecticut, over 20 students will spend three days at Nature’s Classroom where they will experience education from another perspective, outside the walls of the classroom.
Nature’s Classroom is a residential environmental education program, located in Connecticut.”This is one of those experiences of a lifetime that these kids will forever remember. It’s three days of hands-on learning, socializing and experiencing things that they would’ve never had the chance to and it’s all because of PSEG,” said Jackie Simmons, Principal of Roosevelt School. Students will spend their days exploring the site and experiencing new challenges and discoveries. This unique opportunity will help students gain a better understanding of dynamic interactions in the natural world, as well as interpersonal interactions among themselves.
As a leading corporate citizen, PSEG Power believes that community and civic engagement is paramount to the growth of individuals and communities. We are proud to support Roosevelt School’s mission to created opportunities and individual growth through experience.
