As many of you probably have heard, Greenfield has been awarded a National Blue Ribbon from the U.S. Department of Education. The National Blue Ribbon Schools Program recognizes public and private schools based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups. It is the highest honor that a school can receive.
First a butterfly lays eggs on leaves. Then, a caterpillar hatches and eats its own eggshell. It also starts eating leaves. When the caterpillar is big enough it stops eating.
The caterpillar attaches itself to a twig and goes into a cocoon. This is the chrysalis stage.
After 15 days, a butterfly emerges out of the cocoon. Their wings are small and wet. They are very fragile. Their wings become bigger and stronger so they can fly. Then the butterfly flies off and lands on plants, trees and flowers.
