(North Bergen, NJ—January 25, 2017) 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 Blu-rays to swap. Everybody 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 500 items for swapping. After all of the items had been swapped, students had the opportunity to partake and own remaining items.
“The Swap is a wonderful resource for recycling and sharing the love of reading with others,” says Mrs. Bellotti.
The National Honor Society wishes to thank everyone for donations to the Book Swap.
