Black Hawk students spend day planting trees


It may have been a week late due to the mud, but on Friday Black Hawk Elementary students planted trees for Arbor Day.    

It was an all day, school wide effort. They planted 700 trees between Sturgis Road and I–90. Teachers and students say it was fun to be out of the classroom and helping improve the area.    

"I like getting the kids out in nature and giving them a sense of helping their community. It's been great for them. They've enjoyed it. It is something they are going to be able to come back to for years and see the trees they've planted to help make the community a better place," said Nancy Pruitt, a fifth grade teacher at Black Hawk Elementary.

The 440 students planted pine, oak, and fern trees.
