The Return of the Butterflies

The butterflies returned!

As part of their study of migration, our first and second grade classes participated in Symbolic Migration, an initiative that had classrooms close to the Monarch butterflies' northern habitats sending class photos and symbolic paper butterflies to classes in Mexico. Now, in the spring, a return mailing of butterflies arrived, containing paper butterflies made by other classes in the U.S.

The children were also thrilled to receive a letter from a class in Mexico to "the dear friends in the north."

They also received a beautiful greeting from another participating school in Marlborough, CT, and are happy to have made these connections through migration.
