Successful United Way Campaign
Thank you to all who donated to the "Go Wild for United Way" campaign. The SCA is proud to announce they went over their goal and collect $1075.11. This money will help support local charities that help people in our own communities.
Also a big thank you to all who participated in the "Wacky and Wild" School Spirit Day! Students from kindergarten through fifth grade had the chance to show just how "Wacky and Wild" they could be. A few faculty members showed off their school spirit, too!
Thank you to Marny Sanders, aka "The Butterfly Whisperer", for bringing many wonderful caterpillars to 9 of our Red Mill classes. Students learned about life cycles of the Monarch, Black Swallowtail, Giant Leopard, Apple Sphinx, Variegated Fritillary, and Spicebush caterpillars. After feeding and caring for their caterpillars, students enjoyed seeing them spin a chrysalis and then emerge as beautiful butterflies or moths. Red Mill was delighted to be able to contribute to the continuation of this amazing life cycle. Marny Sanders shared with the students and teachers that, “The greatest majority of caterpillars never make it to the butterfly stage. You are wonderful caretakers by helping these amazing creatures live."
How exciting it was watching them flutter their wings, and take their first flights, as they were set free!
