What is your wish for this project?
My wish for this project is that the students will be inspired and encouraged by their ability to to see a project through from the ground up. Hopefully, they will use this experience to continue making the world a more beautiful place.
How did it go?
It was a success! The students planned, raised money, and planted (in the rain!) At the end of our project, we had a Tree Celebration. With the students' families and caregivers present, we presented the students with a Roots & Shoots Certificate. (We also ate cupcakes in the shape of a tree!) They were so incredibly proud of themselves. I know they will be inspired to continue doing great things for our local community.
