On a Thursday dedicated to service, one New Trier advisory class of 22 sophomores rolled up their sleeves and dug into a new challenge at the Glencoe Community Garden. 

As part of a classwide initiative, sophomores at New Trier headed to a number of locations for a designated service day. New Trier advisor Kelly Burns’ group headed to Glencoe’s own community garden, to help bring the garden to life on a May morning.
