Van Voorhis students celebrate Earth/Arbor Day with tree planting
May 3, 2018
Children circled around a square piece of plywood on the ground, lining up according to where their teachers directed them. Nearby sat a small tree spade with an eastern redbud cupped in its conic blades.
"Today is about Arbor Day, and today, I want to talk about why we also celebrate trees," said Van Voorhis Elementary School student Zander Westfall, kicking off the celebration.
