According to communications director Adrienn Mendonca, the tree planting is the second one the organization has done in Pooler and is a response to the “tree canopy” loss brought on by area development. Much of Savannah’s natural beauty revolves around its majestic trees and in particular the live oak. One of the most splendid live oak specimens is located next to Forsyth Park, and it owes its continued longevity to the Savannah Tree Foundation. In the early ‘80s, the Candler Oak, which nearly dates back to the arrival of Gen. James Oglethorpe and the establishment of the Georgia colony in 1733, was in “serious decline” and had a life expectancy of less than 20 years. The Savannah Tree Foundation, started by Page Hungerpiller, Suzanne Williams and Lynda Beam, made the Candler Oak its first preservation project, in 1982. In an unprecedented move, the group obtained a conservation easement on a single tree. The result, in 1984, was a 6,804-squarefoot easement that protected the Candler Oak from loss to development. The following year, asphalt was removed from the root area and a schedule of regular maintenance, to include watering, mulching, weeding and Facing Change Together By Thomas B. Lockamy, Jr. Ed.D. Instant is not one of my favorite words. Instant breakfast, instant potatoes, instant kharma, instant gratification, instant grits and instant fixes all fall into the same category; good intentions typically resulting in poor results. The reality is - there are no instant fixes in education. Over the past four years, with the support of our broader community, we have moved collaboratively in the right direction. We have introduced a number of key ingredients to the mix: differentiated instruction, specialized data teams, assessment teams, E-SPLOST, school construction, PTA, community engagement, improved bus service, more rigorous curriculum, high expectations, school uniforms, and the list goes on and on. Creating a world class educational system takes time, patience, and experience using just the right mixture of ingredients and synergies. Now we approach yet another challenge that we must consider together with thoughtful deliberation and careful regard for families, communities and most importantly, our students. The next challenge before us is redistricting our schools into fully energized yet harmonious fertilizing, was implemented. That project was the metaphorical tiny acorn that has grown into the mighty oak when it comes to the efforts of _____________________________________ Continued on Page A3 learning communities. Before we begin there must be unilateral agreement; redistricting is not an instant fix. It is not a magic bullet. It is simply the next step on our journey to World Class. It is a necessity, albeit challenging, but it is an absolute necessity. Local school attendance zones have not been redrawn in several years. In the meantime our population has migrated. For example, I am reminded of the prevalent joke in the 70’s and 80’s about the possibility of Wilmington Island sinking due to over growth.
