Seedlings

Mrs. Michele MIller, fourth grade teacher, has put together an opportunity provided by the PA Game Commission and the Wildlife for Everyone Foundation for each of our students to be sent home with a seedling (separate from what has already done for kindergarten) free of charge. Not only should all kindergarten students district-wide go home with a seedling this week, all NHW students will be provided one as well. They should be delivered this week - perfectly timed for Arbor Day!


We hope you can find a place either at your home or another place to plant your seedling(s).
