5th Graders Dig Arbor Day

"Planting a tree is an act of faith in the future." - Jerry Hertaus Fifth grade students at Rockford Elementary Arts Magnet School join forces with the City of Greenfield to help plant trees on Arbor Day, April 29,2011.

The City of Greenfield held a kick-off event on Arbor Day to initiate the beginning of their city park phased development, located on the corner of Town Hall Drive and County Road 50. The first phase is to establish trees along the edges and periphery of the park land. Amy Same's fifth grade class joined their efforts for a new park.

"Planting a tree is an act of faith in the future." Greenfield Mayor Jerry Hertaus said in a letter to the class, "Your involvement marked participation in the very first trees planted upon our City Park."

Principal Brenda Petersmeyer commented, "The students did a great job! I received many positive comments about their help!"

The students enjoyed lunch with other community groups and then helped to plant three trees at the park. For more information on the Greenfield City Park project, contact the Greenfield City Hall at 763-477-6464.
