Look at those peepers!

Visitors in the library came in the feathered variety last week. Mrs. Irisawa, the PreK teacher, had an amazing success rate hatching chicken eggs. The students got to experience the miracles of life as they watched the chickens emerge from their shells. It was a lot of work checking humidity and temperatures in the incubator, turning the eggs three times a day, and the care after hatching, however it was all worth it to hear the happy little peeps - of the students and the chicks!

Mr. Irisawa, the 4th grade Science teacher, had his own miracles to share with his class as well. Their little ones are now residing in the library until they go to their new homes.
