Across the district, students received blue spruce saplings last week, thanks to volunteer work and donations.
Now in its 26th year, the program began with an anonymous donor known as the Tree Lady. Through the October Hill Foundation grant, many trees have been distributed to students throughout the years. This year Middle Gate Elementary School math/science specialist Pam Fagan said roughly 1,300 trees were sent home with Newtown students.
