South High

Saturday's event at Worcester State was postponed due to a weather prediction of hail and thunderstorms along with a tornado warning. We are planning on having it this Saturday, June 12th at the same time and place as last week.

Today may have been junior skip day at South High School, but we worked with two of Mrs. Snay AP Environmental Science classes and they did absolutely AMAZING work. We did two demonstrations to teach the kids on the proper way to plant a tree. After the demonstrations the kids broke up into groups and worked as teams to dig the holes and plant the trees. Throughout the entire day the students were asking questions, and working hard to get all of the trees planted. One kid who does not like to get his socks dirty, even picked up a shovel and did his part to help dig one of the holes. Some of the kids stayed longer during lunch to help finish planting one of the trees. The students were willing to truly get there hands covered with mud. It was really fun to plant the 11 trees with these students. They were able to get out of the classroom and make a difference in the appearance of the school grounds.

"A man doesn't plant a tree for himself. He plants it for posterity."--Alexander Smith
