Earth Day River Clean Up

To help North Cross School celebrate Earth Day and demonstrate plastics’ permanence in our world, internationally-known Dr. H. Bruce Rinker led a hands-on team experience, then spoke to middle and upper school students about the significant global impact of water-borne plastics.  

Early Monday morning, Rinker led a group of students in a North Cross community clean-up of plastics and pollution from Tinker Creek.  Working in a small area, the 20 students worked on the shore and in the water.

International Dinner Band Story

Bukuru Celestin is a refugee from Burundi who treated his North Cross audience to a joyfully upbeat night of original Afro-beat Gospel songs with his sisters.  Celestin developed his music at the Jefferson Center's Music Lab.  He arrived in Roanoke in 2008 and, because of the support received from the Jefferson Center’s programs, has been able to develop his music to the point of releasing his first CD this summer.
