June 14, 2013 - The grade two class at St.David Catholic Elementary School raised Monarch butterflies in the their classroom this spring. They successfully nurtured the insects from chrysalis to butterflies over the past few weeks. On June 13th, 2013, Jennifer Babin-Fenske from EarthCare Sudbury came to join the class in releasing the butterflies. The grade two science teacher, Mrs.Shannon Meyer, stated "It was a great project that allowed us to review key science concepts and relate them to real life." All students were excited about the experience of releasing the butterflies. "It was fun to see the butterflies landing on students. If they stood still, the butterflies would land on them. That was my favourite part of the day." Logan Stewart-Cristo, grade two student at St.David Catholic School
