Phoenixville might be the cleanest town in the region after more than 220 students of Holy Family School in the Chester County community celebrated Earth Day on Friday, April 23. All grades of the students fanned out from the school in the morning and picked up debris across a 36-block area including Reeves Park, just two blocks from the school. The community cleanup day was the first of its kind for the Catholic regional school, and the activity helped reinforce classroom lessons of care for creation and respect for life.

The Student Council also held a fundraiser the previous day in which students could dress down and donate $1 for Team Trees, an organization that plants one tree for each dollar raised. (Photos by Matthew Gambino)
