Tree of Celebration

Kiddie Toes Montessori School has adopted a tree. They call it the Tree of Celebration. This small cypress tree will be decorated and "dressed" to help the school celebrate events and milestones.

The Cypress (Cupressus sempervirens) is generally a flame - shaped, tapering, cone-like tree, with but a short stem below its branches, which rise erectly and close to the trunk.

The tree was cleaned and pruned by the hardworking teachers of KTMS, and was decorated by the learners. They put fruits and vegetable cut-outs during the nutrition week. This tree was also the witness to the learner's sympathy for the late President Cory -- they tied yellow ribbons on the tree.

This tree will not only be a symbol of celebration, but it will also be a symbol of Kiddie Toes Montessori School's love for the environment.

Below is a beautiful poem about trees....


Soak up the sun
Affirm life's magic
Be graceful in the wind
Stand tall after a storm
Feel refreshed after it rains
Grow strong without notice
Be prepared for each season
Provide shelter to strangers
Hang tough through a cold spell
Emerge renewed at the first signs of spring
Stay deeply rooted while reaching for the sky
Be still long enough to
hear your own leaves rustling.
