Arbor Day

Arbor day is on Friday and today the county extension agent brought a Black Hills Spruce Tree for each child in kindergarten!  That is the South Dakota state tree.  In fact, every kindergartner in the county gets a tree. This long-standing tradition has been going on for 30 years!  The students also received seed packets, so that they can plant the Pasque Flower, which is our state flower.  We are very thankful!  The kids were so excited!  It has been a great day!

She taught them how and where to plant their new tree 
as well as how to care for it.
