The weather was perfect, warm and sunny, for our Gate House students to release their butterflies last week. The children had learned about the parts of a caterpillar and butterfly and watched them grow and change over time until they were ready to be released. Mrs. Gurin carefully helped the butterflies out of their cozy home to fly away while the students sang a song and enjoyed a healthy snack!

Yesterday, the Commons became a live wax museum! Mrs. Canuso's fourth grade students shared what they learned about biographical figures by putting on a living wax museum for parents and friends. This interactive morning brought these important figures to life as part of NFA's Signature English language arts program.
