Students with "Chucky," their adopted tree in the back courtyard at JEH (4/24/12)
Last April, RHIC sponsored a school-wide tree planting day at John Eager Howard Elementary School in which students planted over 20 trees around the school grounds. As part of the 2012 Week of the Young Child, JEH classes spent some quality time with their adopted trees. In addition to learning more about their respective trees, students are maintaining, decorating, and even naming the trees.
What do you call your favorite tree?
These young arborists chose "Lenny Oak:"
