Students in Mr. Wall's 2nd grade have been studying the life cycle of the monarch as they carefully investigated monarch eggs all the way to now as we are releasing new monarch butterflies. As of today, we have released 17 monarch butterflies back into our community and we fully expect our number to triple before the end of September! Mr. Wall's students have done the heavy lifting by daily collecting caterpillars from each classroom and tallying the totals for record keeping. Their reward then has been to be the ones to release the butterflies back into the wild!
Thank you to all the students and families in kindergarten through 6thgrade that participated this year in this challenge! A special thank you to Mr. Wall and his leadership in championing this school-wide challenge, we are blessed to have Mr. Wall back at Washington again this year!
