Fuqua class plants a tree

Fuqua School’s Class of 2022 celebrated their “move up the hill” by planting a white dogwood by the middle school pond. This tree-planting tradition started five years ago by the Class of 2018, is an important aspect of the transition to life on the upper school campus. Trees symbolize new beginnings and accomplishments, and the sixth grade trees also have added beauty, shade and remembrance to Fuqua’s campus. The dogwood joins a river birch, a Kwanzan cherry, a Yoshino cherry and a weeping cherry.
