Butterflies and Ladybugs at Weemes Elementary

Mes. Lopez’s class has been raising ladybugs and butterflies in the classroom and today was the day for release! We reviewed the benefits each bug pffered the garden and specifically released the ladybug on our cabbage plants to eat the dreaded aphids. As the last butterfly flew off to our flower beds, everyone cheered, happy to see our garden supporting life!
