May 6, 2016 – Many students learned about the life cycle of the Painted Lady Butterfly today. Our school received a Study Kit with 30 Painted Lady Butterfly larvae (caterpillars). With some student help and observation from most students, Mrs. Bateman transferred the caterpillars to their own individual containers with food for them to continue to grow. The caterpillar will find a safe place to rest, usually on the lid of the container. With a silk thread that comes out of a hole just below its mouth (spinneret), the caterpillar spins a silk pad to attach to. The caterpillar hangs from this pad. Soon, the caterpillars’ skin splits open, from head to abdomen, revealing a dull, brownish case underneath—the chrysalis or pupa. Once the cocoon’s are ready, we will transfer them to a flight cage where they will mature into painted lady butterflies. To be a part of our “Butterfly Diaries”, you can follow their progress via pictures on our school website and Facebook page and this is all on display in the library if you would like to stop by and have a look! If you stop by, please make sure you do not touch, poke or move the containers!

Shown here are selected Grade 5, 6, and 7 students who are participating in a new CPR Program through The Heart and Stroke Foundation entitled ‘Tree of Life’.
Our school will have 10 students participate as ‘ambassadors’ who will receive CPR Anytime Kits. These ambassadors will use the kits to learn the basics of CPR using the DVD, mannequin, book and other accessories contained in the kit. The kit is designed to teach people of all ages how to perform CPR in approximately 20 minutes. Our ambassadors will then go on to share their CPR Anytime Kits with 10 other people. We will have a “Tree of Life” displayed in the school showing how many people our ambassadors have passed the gift of CPR knowledge onto.
