CLARK — Students in Tara Filippini’s fourth grade class at Valley Road School in Clark celebrated Arbor Day. Students read about Mr. J. Sterling Morton, who inspired the national holiday by discussing the importance of trees with the community. In honor of Mr. Morton, students used recycled paper to create ‘leaves’ stating various reasons why trees are so important. Just as Mr. Morton spread the word on the importance of trees, the fourth graders will decorate the halls with their leaves to remind people of their importance. In the photograph above, fourth graders Daniela Thompson, Mackenzie Oyola, Lauren Kelly, Chris Nudo, and Emily Pereira display reasons why trees are so special to them.
