Trees are critical for healthy and vibrant communities. Mrs. Jane Clark’s first graders at South Newton learned this and other interesting tree facts from guest visitors recently. Greg Moser from the City of Newton and Jeff Icard from the Forestry Service demonstrated how to plant new trees and how to care for existing trees. The guests along with student helpers planted seven new seedlings on the school’s campus to signify our 7 habits of leadership. This special learning lesson was held at the perfect time as earth-concious citizens celebrated Arbor Day on April 29th.
