Spring 2008

It was a beautiful spring day at St. George Catholic School in Byron, and more than 200 students helped plant 5 new trees on their schoolyard. A new outdoor classroom was created new the play structure, and a shade tree was planted in the play area. Parents came to help and keep things cheerful and moving along. The trees will be cared for over the summer by one excited student and his family.
