Mr. Chris Greco’s advanced biology classes, along with the seniors who took advanced biology last year, took a day to give back to nature. They went to Stainbrook Park on April 27 and gave the park a good, natural touch-up.

The group did everything from planting trees to landscaping, and even housekeeping. “The work wasn’t very hard; it made me feel more connected with my community,” said senior Spencer Price. The students enjoyed taking part in the beautification of a park that is so close to home.

Juniors took part in the beautification on Friday, May 1, in a field in Edinboro. The plain space was made spectacular by planting hardwoods. Trees that had been cut down were replaced, and when the new trees are harvested, they money will continue to benefit PENNCREST students through a scholarship fund. “Students worked hard, and the day was a success,” said Mr. Greco.
