SHS freshman Angie Berry, pictured here with coach Helfrich, competed at the MIAA Girls State Wrestling Tournament over February vacation. Coach Helfrich writes, "A three sport athlete, Angie took on the difficult trek of representing Stoughton's Black Knights as a freshman in New England's biggest girl's tournament. She pulled off an impressive major victory at the event. We are very proud of Angie for her growth during the season, and are excited to see where her career takes her. Angie represents a landmark development for Stoughton Wrestling, and of the fastest growing sport for women in Massachusetts. Women's wrestling is quickly growing in popularity across the state, and we hope that this inspires more young men and women to consider an exciting, character building sport”.

At the Wilkins, our third grade life cycle studies include learning about the process in which eggs become butterflies with hands on learning, as they grow butterflies in their classroom. The butterflies have emerged from their chyrsalis and pupa stage, and the third graders get to enjoy watching their butterflies get strong before they release them. Projects demonstrating their understanding of the butterfly life cycle line the halls outside their classroom so the rest of the school can learn about it too.

Yesterday, kindergarten students from Mrs. Faria's classroom at the Wilkins School released their butterflies. Students learned about the lifecycle of a butterfly and were able to observe the transformation of their caterpillars to butterflies in their classroom. Students were sad to see their "class pets" go but happy that they were released into their natural habitat.

At the Wilkins, our third grade classrooms have been busy learning about the life cycle. A few weeks ago, third grade started hosting eggs in an incubator, and this week the eggs started hatching. Many of the chicks have already born, and they are so adorable. In the photo with the eggs in the incubator you can see a chick is just about ready to hatch, the shell is mostly broken. Our chicks will stay at the Wilkins a little longer before they move on to their new home.

There is a lot of buzz about butterflies here at the Jones! Many of our classrooms are learning about butterflies with a variety of approaches. In Mrs. Velozo's classroom, in addition to watching the metamorphosis into adult butterfly from egg right in their own classroom, they have many butterfly stories to choose from and create hands-on butterfly art projects.
