Some area school children got down and dirty on Earth Day.

Kindergartners at Cloverdale Elementary School planted bulbs on school grounds Thursday morning.

Students dug up the flower bed in front of the school and planted 100 bulbs.

Teachers say they should bloom in the summer.

All week, the youngsters have been learning the importance of recycling and keeping the earth clean.

“They need to know how to keep the earth clean and what steps to take so our earth can stay beautiful and clean for a longer time,” said kindergarten teacher Lindsey LaMarque

“I think it's really great to be here and helping the environment,” added kindergartner Keyshon Small.

The 100 bulbs were donated by General Electric.
