Ms. Bitting's 3rd graders just wrapped up their Science Unit on the Life Cycle of Monarch butterflies. The class was able to watch the complete change, or metamorphosis, of these Monarchs from egg, to larva, to chrysalis, to adult in their classroom. As each adult butterfly emerged from its chrysalis, the class would select a good name for each one such as Autumn, Mariposa (which is Spanish butterfly), Flutter, and Flower. Then they would release each of the butterflies so they could begin their migration south to Mexico. Great job BV!

BVJH 8th grade students were able to go on our annual Shadows of the Blue and Gray field trip again this year and had a wonderful time learning more about Civil War history. Thanks to the Shadow’s committee for keeping this available to schools each year!

Third grade has been learning about our most abundantly grown local crop: corn. Each student received an ear of corn that they measured, counted the rows of, estimated the numbers of kernels on, and then shelled. After their ear of corn was shelled, Ms. Bitting challenged her students to come up with a strategy to count the number of kernels from their ear of corn.
