Thanks to Stix ECC parent
volunteers, we have four new trees in our playgrounds! Angelee Brockmeyer
arranged for us to receive FREE trees from Project Releaf. They are Basswood
trees and are about 7 feet tall. Paul Brockmeyer, their son Abe, and John
Pitman volunteered time on the weekend to help dig holes and plant the trees.
One spot had a lot of rocks and asphalt, which was hard digging, but the other
spots were better soil. We are so excited that we now have 3 new trees on the
pre-k playground to (eventually) provide shade in the warm weather! We also
have one of the new trees on the K-2 playground for shade and interest. It will
be a great learning experience for students to watch the growth of these trees
over the coming years, and they are learning the value of planting new trees to
make the world a better place.
