Arbor day was on Friday, April 29th this year

In the month of April, through ice pop sales, Harrington Park School raised $1000 which will be donated to a nonprofit group called American Forests. http://www.americanforests.org/  American Forests is the nation’s oldest nonprofit conservation organization and has been an influential voice for conservation and the environment since its founding in 1875.  American Forests will plant 1 tree for ecosystem restoration in the US for every $1 donation made. So, thanks to the kids at Harrington Park School, 1000 trees will be planted to restore areas of need in the US! Way to go kids!
