Posted May 24 at 9:49am

Mrs. Marcolina’s fifth grade class hosted 10 U.S. veterans to honor and celebrate their service to the country with a ceremony and brunch on Friday, May 19.

 

Students began preparing for the visit two months in advance. They were divided into fifteen committees, each with its own chair person, and assigned different responsibilities for the ceremony.

 

The fifth graders presented the veterans with letters, poems, drawings, and musical performances, as well as a food and clothing drive to benefit soldiers and families served by Castle Point Veterans Hospital. The veterans shared their service stories, ranging from the rigors of active duty and wartime hardships, to humorous training experiences, and even a love story. They also passed around wartime photo albums and memorabilia.

Through reading, research, and direct observation third grade students at the intermediate school have been learning about life cycles. In the process they also learned something about caring for small living things.

 

Each class was entrusted with 36 baby painted-lady caterpillars (larva) to watch grow into chrysalis (pupa), and finally hatch into beautiful butterflies!

 

While they waited on each other to hatch and be released, they were safely kept in a special, hanging butterfly house and fed orange slices and sugar water.
