Tree planting honors Bay High centennial, Arbor Day

Parkview School was the first Bay Village school to offer grades 9-12.

The Bay High School centennial celebration continues!

Bay High School, the Bay Alumni Foundation, the city of Bay Village and the Bay Village Green Team have joined forces to celebrate Arbor Day and 100 years of Bay High School with a tree planting dedication ceremony on Wednesday, May 11, at 4:30 p.m. at Bay High School, 29230 Wolf Road. This event is open to the public.

To celebrate 100 years of high school in Bay Village, an approximately 5-foot, white oak tree will be planted in the front lawn area of Bay High School. A plaque will also be placed at the site that explains the significance of the tree.

An identical tree will also be planted on the grounds of Bay Middle School, 27725 Wolf Road, which is the original site of Parkview School, the first Bay Village school to offer grades 9-12. This tree will be planted west of the Bay Middle School football field, and replace a tree that was damaged and removed after a recent storm. A plaque will also be installed to share the story behind this planting.

Please look for these new additions and plaques the next time you visit these schools.
