During spring 2016, third graders and their science teachers, Bernadette Napoleon & Janine Clancy, partnered with Trees New York and to become tree stewards for P.S. 116!


Part of their new responsibilities in caring for the trees planted on East 32nd & East 33rd Streets include:

  • removing litter from tree beds

  • pulling invasive weeds

  • cultivating soil and mulch

  • watering

  • planting flowers

They are also charged with requesting new trees to be planted in any empty tree beds.​ Thank you, Cheryl Blaylock, Director of Youth Programs, for helping to entrust our 3rd graders with this new and very important responsibility!
