Johnson Elementary Students Plant Trees to Celebrate Arbor Day
Friday, 45 third graders at Johnson Elementary School in Charlottesville got their hands dirty and planted trees to celebrate Arbor Day.
"Project Plant It!" is a program developed by Dominion Virginia Power to educate children and improve the environment. The students were given their own pine trees to plant and were excited about what they learned.
Johnson Elementary third grader Laurel Dent said, "If we cut down all the trees and they don't have enough time to grow back...we wont have enough oxygen and our oxygen wont be clean."
Third grade teacher Winnie Williams heads up the event at Johnson Elementary School. "Project Plant It!" will soon be recognized by the National Arbor Day Foundation.
