WE ARE RAISING TROUT!

The DFES kindergarten classes will be raising trout this year. Currently we have trout eggs in our aquarium. Soon they will hatch. Once the trout have grown to about 2 inches, we will release them into the Saluda River. Each day, the kindergarten students will be checking the chemicals in the water and will be responsible for taking care of the fish.
