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.
