Butterfly Release

Mrs. Lewis' Third Grade Class learned about butterflies.  For five to ten days the five hungry caterpillars used their strong jaws to munch through leaves, eating constantly and growing quickly.  After their days of eating, the caterpillars found a safe place to rest and spun a silk pad to attach to. The caterpillars hung from this pad, their skin split open, revealing abrownish case underneath—the chrysalis or pupa stage.  When the butterflies emerged from the chrysalis, their wings were soft and crumpled.  After watching the Painted Lady Butterflies for a few days, the class released them. 







Moving on to Effingham Junior High

All 5th grade students at Central participated in Transition Day on Friday, April 15.  In order to help make the transition to 6th grade  go more smoothly,  students met with Mr. Myers (EJHS principal), Mrs. Fruchtl and Mrs. Minor (EJHS school counselors), and several 6th grade students.  Students learned about P.E., extra-curricular activities, sports, lunch, and passing time.  In addition, all students were able to practice opening combination locks. EJHS-here we come!
