Students in Belinda Reier's second-grade class at Eagle View Elementary School celebrated Arbor Day by planting a tree in front of the school Thursday, April 27.

Before planting the tree, students watched a video about how how trees are used to build houses. They further learned about the importance of trees in the building process from representatives from the Mid-Minnesota Builders Association and Backyard Reflections.
