A Butterfly Garden at TJS

A Butterfly Garden?  YES! Torey J. Sabatini Elementary School celebrated the official opening of its Butterfly Garden with a ribbon cutting ceremony and a display of colorful "paper" butterflies created by students for the occasion.

MEF was delighted to approve a innovative and dynamic grant that will bring the classroom outdoors with a Butterfly Garden designed to support the science curriculum from kindergarten through 5th grade.  This living laboratory measures 16 feet by 16 feet and was carefully designed and planted to attract a range of butterflies.  Students maintain, observe and enjoy this garden as they follow the unique growth cycles from September through June.
