Over 300 Magnet students wielded shovels to dig, chop and backfill holes in which they planted crepe myrtles on Green Thurs, said teacher Robert Trudeau. It was a self-funded project of the Class of 2013. Some 30 trees were added to the campus.
About 42 shovels were loaned by parents to the students. Hopefully the students will take those shovels home today.
