MOUNTAINSIDE, NJ - In celebration of Earth Day, the fifth grade students at Deerfield School in Mountainside, took part in two wonderful activities.
To start off the afternoon, a Flowering Dogwood Tree was planted on school grounds. The tree was given to the school courtesy of the County of Union.
Following the tree planting, students participated in a community clean-up activity. On a nature walk of the school property, and while wearing gloves, they collected any garbage that they came across.
The afternoon was a huge success and students saw first-hand the benefits of cleaning and protecting our earth’s natural resources.
