The second graders are doing amazing work for their yearlong Community Action tree study and they are really making a difference in our community.
Recently they have been focusing on the trees in our neighborhood…
They have been cleaning, mulching and tilling about 20 tree beds in the neighborhood. They have also been learning about how to care for these trees and keep them healthy and happy and why that is so important.
Then they focused their efforts on the tree in front of the Brevoort campus … they cleaned, tilled and mulched it.
Finally, they created a beautiful tree guard and bench that they made themselves in wood shop with Rotem! How impressive!?
