Pupils inspired in Treasured Tree Hunt - Peterborough Examiner - Ontario, CA
Posted By SARAH DEETH/Examiner Staff Writer
A grove of trees next to Otonabee Valley Public School has become a muse of sorts for Carol Patterson-Leclerc’s Grade 2 and 3 class.
To honour the trees, which shade a playground about 20 feet from the classroom window, the class has written a poem and nominated the area for the city’s Treasured Tree Hunt.
The Treasured Tree Hunt began April 20 and closes July 1.
Participants enter by nominating, photographing or writing a story about a tree or group of trees.
Organizers with the Treasured Tree Hunt were at the school yesterday to help pupils measure the trees in their nominated grove.
