Green Apple Day of Service Brings Students, Families, and Partners Together for Campus Beautification

The first unified Hartford Public High School Green Apple Day of service (formerly 6 years as an Academy of Engineering & Green Technology event)  was a huge success.

On behalf of Hartford Public High School, Academy of Engineering and Green Technology Science and Engineering Teacher, David Mangus, extends special thanks to all community partners, staff, and students who participated in this annual event. Together, they picked up a huge pile of trash from the HPHS campus and surrounding neighborhoods. They built 3 picnic tables for the campus and local charities,  pulled weeds, and moved 10 yards of mulch to the landscaped beds surrounding the school.

The students finished putting the trim on their new shed and began putting the roof on the shed (as seen in photo at top of page)– built through the generosity of the Legrand (Formerly Wiremold).  Mr. Mangus states, “I continue to be amazed at the hard work accomplished by of our staff and students during this annual event. We will be planting bulbs soon!”

Mark Makwinski, Legrand, North America’s Director of Innovation & Advanced Design continues, “Our entire team was impressed with the students we worked with and we are looking forward to continuing our partnership  with HPHS.”
