The kindergarten classes have been doing a science unit about butterflies. Both classes were able to see their caterpillars change into chrysalises and at last, butterflies!
Mrs. Helmig’s butterfly quickly flew away during it’s release but Mrs. Tompkins’ butterfly decided to stick around for awhile to take a drink from the butterfly bush!
