First graders release butterflies


Pine River-Backus Elementary School first-graders released their butterflies Friday, May 31, in the PR-B Memorial Garden.

The students’ science project included watching the butterflies develop from caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly. The butterflies will be good company for the flowers growing in the garden.
