HMS Ecology Club won Restoration Trip to Angeles Forest
The HMS Ecology Club were one of the winners of the Tree-by-Tree contest hosted by Edison Electric and TreePeople. Seventeen schools were selected to share their amazing environmental activities and post their pictures on Facebook.
We placed 4th with 640 votes and won a restoration trip to the Angeles Forest. We thank all the students, parents, teachers, and staff that voted for us!!!
We took our field trip on April 5, 2013. Ms. Saenz (6th grade Math/Science Teacher), Ms. Valdiviezo (7th Language Arts & AVID teacher) and Ms. Cole (school nurse) joined us.
A few of the AVID students joined the Ecology Club to learn about planting trees that have burned down in the forest.
Andrew Cushman and volunteers from TreePeople met us at the forest. We even had Hawthorne Cable follow us there and stayed the whole time filming our students. It was an all day event and the students/staff planted 210 trees!!!
