We planted five more trees of different species to add to the amazing tree diversity we already have on campus. Mr. Lopez, and Grounds members Martha Tucker, Jana Roush, and Susan Lurie led this work, although the fireman from District 11 planted one tree themselves. Then we mulched many campus trees, with the invaluable help of David from Facilities. The beautiful trees were supplied by the Denver Office of Forestry and coordinated by Darren Potucek there. The Office of Forestry has donated and delivered dozens of trees to GW over the years, including the twenty they recently planted on the ball fields and in the Monaco right of way. Such a gift to the school.
Alyssa Richason has been recruiting volunteers and publicizing the event for weeks and handled registration and pizza service yesterday with great aplomb.
Tools and mulch were contributed by DPS Facilites. Thank you, Efren Martinez. Sarah Pezoa, another GW alumni parent who continues to give service to the school, organized tool distribution and collection all day.
My heartfelt thanks goes to every member of the Grounds Committee who spent month preparing for the annual Go Green Day. It is such a pleasure to be part of a group of volunteers who have served the GW community for years with so much expertise, time and dedication.
