Congratulations Jaden Campbell!

Jaden won the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Region 9 – Western New York’s 9th Annual Arbor Day Poster Contest for fifth graders.   Jaden’s winning submission will be sent to Albany to be judged with other student winners selected from each of DEC’s nine regions.  The winner of the statewide contest will have their entry used as the official 2018 New York State Arbor Day Poster and distributed at schools, libraries, government offices, nursery and landscaping businesses, and environmental organizations statewide.  Additionally, our school will receive a tree planting.  The tree will be named in honor of Jaden.
