Earth Day/Arbor Day
Last Friday we had a clean-up/tree planting afternoon for Earth Day/Arbor Day.  The kids enjoyed walking about 8 blocks around the school picking up litter; then we planted five lilac bushes at the east end of the school. The weather was nice and the kids were well-behaved, which made a great afternoon!
