Arbor Day Tree Donation

Mr. Norman Zetka with the Bastrop County Soil & Water Conservation District is shown here with Mrs. Medrano and the Junior Harvesters. Mr. Zetka delivered 15 trees to the school. The Junior Harvesters planted three of the trees in the new Outdoor Fitness Center on Bishop Street. The remaining trees will be shared with the other campuses as well as the Veterans Memorial Park in town.

The Junior Harvesters dedicated one of the trees in honor of Richard Lowery who dedicates many hours helping in the garden.

Earth Day 2012

Mrs. Medrano and the Junior Harvesters planted a tree in honor of Earth Day 2012. This year the group replaced a young Bradford Pear that didn't survive the drought.

This tree is planted by the flagpole outside the 3rd grade hallway. Our students and staff will have the opportunity to care for it and watch it grow every day.

The Junior Harvesters will be planting more trees on Arbor Day in the new Outdoor Fitness Center by the gym on Bishop St. We'll post pictures here.
