Captain Planet made a surprise appearance. The gym was packed with students from multiple grades, including the school's founding members of Roots & Shoots.
 Jane greeted the students with "hello" in several languages - including Swahili and chimpanzee!  The school's founding Roots & Shoots members planted this tree several years ago. Mr. H naturally had to pay a visit.
