Operation Green Team Arbor Day Poster Contest
Since GSES opened our doors in 2011, the 5th graders have participated in Operation Green Team’s Arbor Day Poster contest. In this annual event, HCS 5th grade students are invited to participate in illustrating a poster to celebrate the vital role trees play in our environment. We are very proud that over the years, GSES has represented HCS twice at the state level where the winning student planted a tree with Governor Ivey on the grounds of the Alabama State Capitol in Montgomery. Even with all of the challenges of the 2020-2021 school year, Operation Green Team has continued to hold the Arbor Day Poster Contest, and our GSES 5th grade students have submitted some “owlsome” posters!
