GCEA CELEBRATED ARBOR DAY
WITH LOCAL SCHOOLS
Crested Butte Community School 4th Graders received tree seedlings on Arbor Day.
APRIL brings thoughts of spring, dreams of the gardens to plant, and Arbor Day. This year GCEA helped schools in Crested Butte, Gunnison, and Lake City celebrate Arbor Day with the planting of trees. All fourth graders in our service area received an Austrian pine seedling to plant and care for. Some students took the trees home to plant, others planted their trees on school grounds. Since 2007, more than 391,000 fourth graders across America have participated in the educational program.

Teachers who live in GCEA's service territory, or who teach at a school in our area, are invited to attend. The conference fee, lodging, travel expenses and most meals will be covered by Tri-State. Teachers will also receive a classroom teaching kit valued at $300. Register at www.regonline.com/needtristate2013 or contact Gigi Dennis at 303-254-3620 for more information.
