The children have been spending lots of their outdoor time learning about our beautiful tree that is the center of the Courtyard at State Street Church. It was determined this Fall that the tree is dying and must be removed for safety. Although we are all so sad to say goodbye to this beautiful giant, Teacher Resa has embraced this as an opportunity for us all to learn. A group of knitters made our tree a 30-foot-long scarf for adornment while it is the focus of the children’s studies. The children will take part in an interfaith ceremony to say goodbye to the tree and celebrate its extraordinary long life.
