    This Spring the 3rd graders learned about the life cycle of a butterfly. The students were able to take butterfly eggs and watch as they transformed from egg to caterpillar to chrysalis and finally to beautiful butterflies. On the last day of school the students and teachers went outside and released the butterflies. What a great way to start summer break! CLICK the headline to view the photo gallery.
