Trees, Trees, Trees!

The teachers and children of ECDC celebrated Tu B’Shvat, the New Year of Trees. There is so much to learn, enjoy and discover about trees. We talked about all of the ways that trees help us – by giving us fruit, shade, and beauty. The children in Mrs. Brown’s class explored our building to find various use of wood. The children in Mrs. Suprano’s class were inspired by the bare maple tree in our playground and painted a winter mural. They are closely watching the maple tree through the seasons. At Assembly we sang a new song, Trees, Trees, Trees, and all agreed “We all need our trees, trees, trees!”

ECDC teachers and children are learning to enjoy and appreciate trees – all year round.

We are happy to announce that in honor of Tu B’Shvat, we raised $252 — enough to plant 14 trees in Israel.

Thank you to our children for earning quarters toward this cause and to ECDC families for your amazing generosity.
