In celebration of Bette Midler's birthday last week, P.S. 84 in Queens partnered with MillionTreesNYC, a joint initiative between New York Restoration Project and the City of New York through which one million new trees will be planted and cared for across the five boroughs by 2017. On Thursday, December 2nd, 20 students made their schoolyard even greener by helping plant nine new trees. Students gained first-hand experience in understanding the importance of creating and maintaining greener spaces in New York City. After this very special tree-planting event, students taped a "Happy Birthday" message to send to Bette Midler, as well as read a wonderful poem they wrote for her, thanking her and MillionTreesNYC for giving their school these new trees!
