SAN ANGELO, Texas — On Tuesday, April 20 students from three San Angelo Independent School District campuses participated in a tree-planting event celebrating Earth Day, usually celebrated April 22.

According to an SAISD release, students from Holiman Elementary, Lincoln Middle and Lake View High schools participated in the event.

Schneider Electric worked with SAISD on the Earth Day celebrations and tree plantings. The company donated a red oak tree for the three campuses. 

Company representatives provided students with information on sustainability and energy-related careers.

“We have partnered with San Angelo ISD for a few years now, and Earth Day is a great way to give back to the community,” Marissa Bunce, Schneider Electric representative, said.

A group or class at each campus participated in the events. 

Fifth graders in the Garden Club at Holiman Elementary School joined the event.

"At Holiman, we have an outdoor classroom that’s already up and going with fruit trees, rose bushes, vegetables and fruits,” Ginger Luther, Holiman Elementary Principal, said. "Our students in the gardening club learn how to preserve our earth weekly as they go from planting to harvesting.” 

For Lincoln Middle School, Mrs. Ramirez's eighth-grade science class attended the ceremony.  

At Lake View High School Mr. Morris's Greenhouse Production class attended the event and learned about environment-related careers, according to the release.

SAISD thanks Schneider Electric, its students, Facilities and Maintenance team for assisting in the process.

SAISD, students and staff at the three campuses look forward to the trees thriving and providing future generations with oxygen and shade, the release said.
