Many of the students who attend Crossing Elementary were able to take trees to plant in their yards at home. This was made possible through the Neighborhood Forest’s Tree Program. Parents registered for the trees online and students brought them home just before Earth Day. The goal of the program is to send home a tree with every child who wanted one. For more information about this program, please visit; www.neighborhoodforest.org.
