As is often the case with new construction projects, some of the existing trees at the site will be coming down. You may notice some trees coming down this week, and we are sad to see them go. Fortunately, the existing landscaping plan for the new building includes some new tree and foliage planting. Please review the below images for more information (click each image to enlarge them).
Sarah Harpole, our 2-5 Art Specialist, worked with many of her students to commemorate the existing trees through various projects. Here are some of her 4th graders giving the buckeye tree a great big farewell hug.
While we are excited for the new building and plantings, it's certainly hard not to be sentimental about our trees!
