Rumson Arbor Day Celebration

This year, the STC joined forces with the Rumson Schools Parent Teacher Organization and Student Government Association to expand the Arbor Day celebration by hosting a school wide “Buck$ for Bark” fundraising campaign, raising awareness of the importance of trees and funds to plant a campus legacy tree for each grade level. The benefits of trees on campus are numerous. Trees offer shade for outdoor activities, provide oxygen, cool pavement and buildings, screen views, provide a habitat for wildlife, reduce stress, and offer a beautiful setting in which to learn.

The fundraiser was a terrific success and the students exceeded their goal of $3600. The result will be a campus rich in trees and outdoor educational opportunities. The 2016 Arbor Day celebration culminated with a ceremony on April 29th presided over by School Superintendent Dr. Bormann and Mayor Ekdahl at the school campus.
