Donations from students, teachers and families from Willow Bend Elementary, North Ridge Elementary and Terra Vista Middle School purchased multiple Weeping Willow, Desert Willow, Chinese Pistache & Vitex trees for the school’s “Willows for Willow Bend” Eagle Scout Project. Approximately 30 volunteers from Troop 505, Troop 575, Willow Bend Elementary and Frenship High School planted a total of 26 new trees around Willow Bend’s campus on Saturday, March 19th in honor of the 10th Anniversary of Willow Bend opening its doors.
Volunteers expressed their enthusiasm in planting trees for the school—especially those for which the school is named—and are excited to watch them all grow and mature. These shade trees will one day become a beautiful “welcome” for those who attend Willow Bend school.
