Hundreds of students, their families and teachers recycled for months to raise money to buy new trees for Will Rogers Middle School in Belmont Shore. The Rogers PTA contributed funds.

And this weekend, the Rogers Green Party planted them.

Led by Mr. Sheldon (king of recycling and known to adults as Paul Sheldon), a small but mighty team of volunteer students and parents spent several hours Saturday digging holes and planting 25 trees. Mr. Sheldon was also able to afford some bamboo for the greening of the campus, located at Monrovia and Appian Way.

When you see these hard-working volunteers in our photos, give them a shout-out. And check out the trees. The give-away is the freshly dug dirt ring at their base.
