Deerfield School 5th Graders Celebrate Earth Day in Mountainside

In celebration of Earth Day, the fifth grade students at Deerfield School in Mountainside took part two wonderful activities. To start off the afternoon, a Flowering Dogwood Tree was planted on school grounds.
The tree was given to the school courtesy of the County of Union. Following the tree planting, students participated in a community clean-up activity. On a nature walk of the school property, and while wearing gloves, they collected any garbage that they came across. The afternoon was a huge success and students saw first-hand the benefits of cleaning and protecting our earth’s natural resources.
