1st Grade Butterfly Release

After saying a prayer for safe travels, SJS 1st graders released their butterflies into the wild yesterday afternoon. Our 1st grade students have watched these classroom pets go from caterpillars to chrysalises to butterflies as part of their science studies, keeping a journal with their personal observations throughout the transformation. The 1st grade classes have also been reading stories about butterflies and even visited the butterfly encounter on their field trip to the science center last week.  Here are a few pictures from yesterday’s butterfly release.
