Seniors Cassandra Cowell, Marissa Petrucci, and Helen Way were awarded the Land, Air, and Natural World Award from Project Green Schools, a Massachusetts-based organization dedicated to environmental education, for their Tree-Plenish project last spring. They were commended in a virtual ceremony held in May.

In April 2021, Cowell, Petrucci, and Way collaborated with Tree-Plenish, an organization that partners with schools and students to plant trees in accordance with their school’s paper usage, to bring tree-planting to the Ursuline community. Community members signed up to plant a total of 50 trees, with an additional 50 trees donated to Needham’s Arbor Day to be planted in residents’ own backyards

Congratulations on your hard work being recognized!
