Students celebrate Arbor Day in Marked Tree

MARKED TREE, AR (KAIT) - A group of Region 8 children showed their respect to Mother Nature on Monday.

Students from Marked Tree Elementary left their classrooms and traveled to Main Street to celebrate Arbor Day with the community.

Jarrett Harsson is a student in the 6th grade and wrote a speech that was read with his fellow classmates in honor of the day.

"I decided to write this speech because I really wanted to learn more about Arbor Day, myself, and I thought I could share it with the rest of Marked Tree, too," said Harsson.

They also planted a tree at the location.
