EDISON, NJ-- The Junior Kindergarten class at The Wardlaw+Hartridge School in Edison concluded its lifecycle unit by releasing their Painted Lady butterflies in the Lower School garden on April 28. Early Childhood students learned about the lifecycles of ladybugs, chickens, frogs and the butterfly. 

“We received our butterflies as caterpillars and watched them form chrysalis as they continued through the lifecycle, finally hatching into our beautiful butterflies! What a treat to have perfect weather for the release party,” STEM teacher Erin Maciorowski of Neptune said.
