With the coordinated efforts of ReTreeUs Program Manager Richard Hodges, school Principal Lisa Demick and parent Erica Giddinge, the students on May 12 began planting some of the 17 trees, a variety of apples and peaches, near the existing garden and around the school. Hodges will educate the students, staff and parent volunteers on how to properly care for the new trees and the positive environmental impact they will have in the community, as well as returning for continuing education.
