JEH students plant along the raised wall near the Linden Ave. entrance (5/4/12)
Building on the success of last year's Tree Planting Day at John Eager Howard Elementary School, the 2012 Green Thumb Day offered every JEH teacher and student the chance to help make their school grounds a little cleaner and their school uniforms a lot dirtier. Students tended to their adopted trees around the school grounds, planted flowers along the Linden Ave. entrance, and continued to grow the school's outdoor classroom. Thanks to Howard for the great pictures!
At the end of a long day digging in the dirt and handling garden snakes, one student said, "Today was the fun day of my life!"
