Celebrating Arbor Day!
Shepard's Green Club partnered with the Deerfield Park District to do a fundraiser to raise money to purchase a Pear Tree to plant on Arbor Day! The students created a grade-level competition and voted on potential names. We now have Gerald the Pear Tree officially planted! We couldn't have asked for better weather for planting. Happy Arbor Day!"
