NORTH CALDWELL, NJ - West Essex High School celebrated Earth Day with a visit from Stouty the Squirrel, who scurried over to the high school during lunch and posed for photographs with students for $1.

The money raised will be used to beautify the high school courtyard gardens and an outdoor classroom, according to WE CARE Treasurer Liam Fost, a sophomore from North Caldwell, who posed for a photo with Stouty (aka Matt Stout,  a sophomore from Roseland.)

"It is for a good cause," Stouty chirped. (Note: Stouty is also the vice president for WE CARE.)

WE CARE organized the Earth Day events.
