HOLTVILLE — On Saturday, Jan. 25 Holtville High School students, along with ASB decided to join together to beautify the campus. This idea came across Principal Anthony Arevalo because two weeks from this day there was to be a big high school reunion for classes 2015 and under.
Around 15 students came to
help on that Saturday morning with Mr. Arevalo, Mrs. Arevalo and the Gas
“It was nice to see Holtville
High School students giving back to their school” said Mr. Guzman.
Everyone started at 7 a.m. as
the Gas company started to take apart benches to make new ones. The male
students worked on planting three trees in the front of the high school. This
involved measuring the floor to get the right estimate on where the trees are
supposed to be planted.
Days prior to the event, the utility
company came to the school to mark where their pipes were so that trees
wouldn’t planted near those areas.
As the day went by, the rest
of the students planted around 60 flowers under and near the flagpole. After
finishing with that, most of the benches were being finished up and students
started to paint them green. Lastly, hamburgers were made as students finished
cleaning, as a way of thanking everyone who came out that Saturday morning.
Melissa Torres, a student who
helped out to beautify the campus, said, “ It was something different for
students to be more involved with their school and it was nice seeing students
take time out of their Saturday to help out.”
