THE COMMUNITY LION'S ROAR!
With the help of our supportive community, a butterfly garden is coming to Lindenwold Preschool! The project got started with a lesson on metamorphosis in Ms. Bates’ Classroom. Last spring, all the preschool classrooms received tiny caterpillars and butterfly enclosure nets. Ms. Bates’s students kept journals and drew pictures about each stage of the metamorphosis process. District Superintendent, Dr. Kristin P. O’Neil, and District Director of Special Services, Mrs. Adrienne McManis, were visiting the building and saw the chrysalises in progress and the excitement of the students; the idea grew from there. Soon - the butterfly garden project was born.
Ms. Bates applied for and received a grant called the 2023 GroMoreGood Grassroots Grant. These funds will be used to purchase milkweed, soil, and other butterfly attracting plants/accessories for the Butterfly Garden. The project is even joining forces with local organizations like the Boy Scouts and Love Lindenwold. Ms. Faith Martinelli, LHS Senior, is building two raised flower beds to house the butterfly garden as part of her Eagle Scout Project. Love Lindenwold will assist the District by caring for the garden during the summer months when school is not in session.
Once everything is in place, the children will have the opportunity to plant and water the garden. The teachers plan on having the children create decorations for the garden. After the butterflies come out of their chrysalises in each classroom, they will release our butterflies into the garden. This is a big, exciting event for the littlest learners! They learn so much and are very interested in the whole cycle. Releasing butterflies is very exciting!
Thank you to all that were involved in the creation of the Lindenwold Preschool butterfly garden. The District plans to continue its butterfly garden with the opening of our new Early Childhood Center in 2025.
