After saying a prayer for safe travels, SJS 1st graders released their classroom butterflies into the wild this morning (in our school’s new prayer garden). The 1st grade students have watched these classroom pets go from caterpillars to chrysalises to butterflies as part of their science studies, journaling their observations throughout the transformation as part of their science lessons on insects.  Ms. Labowski’s students have also completed a creative writing assignment where they think the butterflies will travel.
