Clifton High School Valedictorian Daniel Peltyszyn, said the first thing he wanted to do after graduation was “sit back and relax.” After becoming the top of the graduating Class of 2015, the respite is well-deserved. However, Peltyszyn said what he is most looking forward to is a change of scenery after three years at Clifton High School’s main campus… He will attend Rutgers New Brunswick as a member of the inaugural Honors College class in the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences… Peltyszyn said he plans to become a surgeon. If he had to choose a specialty right now, he’d opt for neurosurgery, he added.
Paterson’s School 5 Site of Rainwater Harvesting Experiment
Students at School 5 will be using a newly-installed cistern to water their Elysian Fields garden as a part of a “green” demonstration project… The cistern will catch rainwater that the students later will pump into the garden under the project, which is happening through a partnership between the Passaic Valley Sewerage Commission and the Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program… Officials from the Sewerage Commission and Rutgers Cooperative gathered with School 5 students on Monday to launch the project.
