On Wednesday morning, about 300 students from Rosa International Middle School came out to show their Earth Day pride and promote tomorrow's Earth Festival by forming a giant "Earth Fest" heart on the grounds of the school. Thank you to Principal George Guy and the faculty, students and staff for their cooperation in making the aerial shot possible.
