Trees, Trees, Trees

In our outdoor classroom, the first graders had the pleasure of meeting Jane Kuhl from the Tecumseh NRD.  Jane talked with the kids about the important role trees play in our environment.  They discussed the proper places to plant trees, how to plant them, and how to care for them.  Every first grader received a Redosier Dogwood and a pledge card, naming them the "Official Tree Caretaker".  After all the trees were handed out, we had one extra, and the plan is to plant it here at Bennet Elementary.  It will be fun to watch the tree and the kids grow thoughout their years here at Bennet!
