We’ve had a terrific Earth Week! Our theme this year was “Trees”, and we spent the week working with Conservation Services to plant over 100 new trees on the Crocker Conservancy. Students in Pre-K through Eighth Grade spent time on the Crocker Conservancy for planting.
In addition, students enjoyed a fascinating presentation from our special guest speaker, Mr. Steve Carroll from Blandy Experimental Farm, on what trees are and how they work in addition to hearing from our resident expert, Mr. Legge.
Another fun project originated out of the Art Department, as the entire school tie dyed shirts in art class! We held a campus wide contest for students to create their own logo design for the shirts, with more than 50 students submitting an entry. Lauren H. won a logo design competition for the t-shirts!
