Tree Planting Ceremony Honors Bay High School Centennial, Arbor Day
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 to explain the significance of the tree.
An identical tree will 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 high school, grades 9-12. This tree will be planted west of the Bay Middle School football field to replace a tree that was damaged and removed after a recent storm. A plaque will also be installed near this tree to share the story and significance behind this planting.
Please look for these new additions and plaques the next time you visit these two schools.
New: Ohio State Rep. Monique Smith will be in attendance at this May 11 event. She will share a commendation for Bay High School's Centennial, on behalf of herself and Ohio Speaker of the House Robert R. Cupp.
