In December 2014, students from Calcutt Middle School and Scituate High School partnered with the City of Central Falls to developing a proposal for America the Beautiful - Tree Rhode Island 2015-2016 grant program. The students proposal was funded, and on April 10, 2015 the students planted 14 trees around Calcutt Middle School and established the Central Falls Arboretum.
