    Appreciate these follow-up pictures Laurie! The first photo is Euonymus as Walter had said. The second photo, so sorry not enough details to tell. The third photo, to my eyes these opposite leaves with smooth edge and parallel veins look like some species of dogwood. I can’t tell which species or cultivars yours is. According to sources, native species of Dogwood grow CT with fruits (drupes) look similar to yours previous are silky dogwood (C. amomum syn. ), Gray dogwood (C. racemosa), and roundleaf dogwood (C. rugosa). Check out these included links for some of these for their images. Click on picture to enlarge Best wishes to you and your students! Laura https://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/31680/
