Tree planted in honor of long-time school nurse

Allamakee Community School District teachers purchased a tree in memory of Gretchen Stangeland, who was a school nurse in the district for 19 years prior to her retirement in 2003 and who passed away in November of 2012. That tree was planted on the last day of classes in the district for the 2013-2014 school year, Monday, June 2, in front of West Elementary School in Waukon. Pictured above at the tree planting is the second grade class from Mrs. Jenette Schulte's classroom along with Bryce Koenig and Tom O'Neill of Skyline Landscaping. Submitted photo.
