In partnership with TreeUtah, over 550 members of The McGillis School community, including 386 students, 50 teachers, and 120 volunteers, gathered for TREEkun Olam. This inaugural day of community service was a hands-on experience of planting trees that will immediately impact our local climate and community.
We are excited to announce the return of TREEkun Olam, our 2nd annual day of service! TREEkun Olam is our community-wide project that celebrates our values of Tikkun Olam (repairing the world), Gemilut Hasadim (doing good and kind deeds), and Tzedakah (giving to others). TREEkun Olam provides our entire community with hands-on experience planting trees that immediately impact our climate and community.
Supported by parents, alumni parents, grandparents, alumni, and community partners, our current generation of McGillis students will plant trees for future generations to enjoy.
Please join us by making a donation to the TREEkun Olam project and volunteering for this wonderful day of service. Together, McGillis is repairing the world!
