Mrs. Herschlein shared, “Thank you to the GPFA Green and Earth Day Committee volunteers, especially the chairs, Mrs. Silver and Mrs. Wohlferd, for a great celebration of Earth Day! The kindergarten students loved the Earth Day relay races and the first graders were so proud of how they brightened our school grounds with the planting of beautiful flowers. I hope your family enjoys planting the seeds the GPFA purchased for every child.”
