(North Bergen, NJ—December 18, 2014) The High Tech National Honor Society (NHS), moderated by veteran Language Arts teacher and Department Liaison Joan Marie Bellotti, recently sponsored its annual Book Swap, a popular five-hour event, held in the Resource Center of the North Hudson Center of Hudson County Schools of Technology, announced Dr. Joseph Giammarella, Principal of High Tech High School.
Students and staff brought gently used books, magazines, DVDs, CDs, and even VHS cassettes to swap for other such media. Everyone had the opportunity for even swaps.
Held twice a year in the winter and spring, the NHS Book Swap proved to be a successful and enjoyable means to recycle used items. This year, students, faculty, and staff donated about 300 items for swapping. After all of the items had been swapped, students had the opportunity to partake and own remaining items.
