Central High School invaded by Little People on Earth Day

EAST students hosted Woodruff kindergarten classes in tree-planting and other activities.

EAST students at Central High School invited Woodruff kindergartners to visit the EAST outdoor classroom for Earth Day activities. All 160 of the kindergartners helped plant trees, butterfly bushes, raspberry, blueberry and blackberry bushes, grape vines, strawberry plants, tomatoes and pepper plants. The children also decorated an Earth Day Banner and made coffee fossils. Each EAST student took a group of 10 children and helped them plant a tree and participate in other activities. Each tree was named and adopted by the children, whose names will be on their respective trees.

The outdoor classroom will be an ongoing project for many years, so when the kindergartners get to high school, they will see that “their” tree has grown just like they have. Future plans for the outdoor classroom include a pond, a butterfly garden and a place to sit and enjoy nature.

Special thanks go out to Mr. Gunn, our Agri teacher, and the Superintendent's Leadership Team for helping in this special day. An additional thank-you goes out to Oscar Hoskins and his supervisor of Helena-West Helena Sanitation Services for special help grading the outdoor classroom area.
