Fresno Trees To Be Planted at All Schools on 100th Class Day

Fresno Trees To Be Planted at All Schools on 100th Class Day
Posted on 01/28/2016
Los Fresnos is Spanish for ash trees, so it is only fitting that fresno trees be planted on the centennial anniversary of the first school in Los Fresnos.

Tuesday, Feb. 2 marks the 100th class day of the 100th school year from the opening of that first school in 1915. The tree-planting ceremonies are part of the activities during the Centennial celebration during the 2015-16 school year.

Historians point to the naming of Los Fresnos in 1915 because so many ash trees were growing in this immediate area. Los Fresnos is Spanish for "ash trees."

Each of the 14 schools in the Los Fresnos CISD will plant ash trees in commemoration of the Centennial. Ceremonies are scheduled at the following times on Tuesday, Feb. 2:
  • Las Yescas Elementary: 1:30 p.m.
  • Laureles Elementary: 2 p.m.
  • Los Fresnos Elementary: 9 a.m.
  • Lopez-Riggins Elementary: 8:30 a.m.
  • Olmito Elementary: 9 a.m.
  • Palmer-Laakso Elementary: 1:30 p.m.
  • Rancho Verde Elementary: 1 p.m.
  • Dora Romero Elementary: 1 p.m.
  • Villareal Elementary: 1:45 p.m.
  • Liberty Memorial Middle School: 1:30 p.m.
  • Los Cuates Middle School: 9:45 a.m.
  • Resaca Middle School: 9 a.m.
  • Los Fresnos United: 5 p.m.
  • Los Fresnos High School: 8:45 a.m.

The tree-planting ceremonies mark the third of four major events scheduled during the Centennial celebration. Schools have different programs planned for the day, including music, poetry, student performances, speeches, and dove releases.

In November, the Homecoming Parade featured floats designed by schools representing each decade since 1915. On Jan. 21-22, the Centennial Stage Show featured performances by LFHS Theater Arts students, a fashion show by decades by students of all 14 schools, and videos of significance to the school district's history.

The Grand Celebration is scheduled Saturday, April 16, at Leo Aguilar Memorial Stadium.
