Planting roots at St. Anthony Park Elementary

A new fire maple tree was planted outside St. Anthony Park Elementary School in early June as a gift from the school’s departing fifth- and sixth-grade classes. The tree helps replace some of the schoolyard trees removed due to disease or the threat of the Emerald ash borer.

Students and staff gathered for a planting ceremony during the last week of school.

The school thanks those who helped the students organize the gift, including fifth- and sixth-grade parents, the two student councils, Principal Ann Johnson, teacher Dan Clark, new SAPSA president Anne Aarness and the Saint Anthony Park Community Foundation.

Special thanks to parent Tryg Hansen for picking up and delivering the tree.
