This past Saturday, fifth graders from the Lehighton Area Middle School planted flowers to help beautify their hometown park.
As a part of the 5 Maroon Team and 5 White Team, area students get to participate in various activities just like this on a regular basis.
"It's great to see these kids get out of the classroom and do something to benefit the greater good for this community. I love to get involved in activities like this," said Jake Molchany, fifth-grade math teacher.
"We're all looking forward to many more future events, just like this one."
