Holly Glen Elementary School was chosen by South Jersey Transportation Authority as a site for planting a tree to celebrate the spirit of Arbor Day and to recognize the importance of environmental stewardship. It is with hope, today’s special event will become tomorrow’s memory and will continue to be a shared story in every home within Monroe Township.
In honor of the tree planting, an assembly was held where students read writings about the history of Arbor Day, what Arbor Day meant to them, why trees are important and Arbor Day poems. The chorus sang an environmental song about flowers and a story about Earth Day was shared. The assembly ended with the ceremonial tree planting where 9 students were selected to help plant the tree.
