Cypress Trees for Earth Day

Students in Seven Hills’ afterschool program, After the Bell, recently planted three bald cypress trees on campus, as part of Earth Day celebrations in late April. In addition to the ATB project, pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students, who studied the characteristics of the cypress tree, each took home cypress saplings to plant with their families. Said ATB and pre-kindergarten teacher Julie Brackett, “It is a very hands-on way for our students to give back to the earth and make family memories at the same time.”
