Monarch Butterfly leaves US for Mexico this month


The Third year Spanish class is avidly studying the current migration of the Monarch Butterfly from our island of Hilton Head to Michoacan, Mexico, where over 250 million will reside for the winter. Our students have recently recorded sightings of the Monarch in our community and are presenting their findings to the class in their Spanish power point projects. We are learning a great deal in Spanish about our fragile ecosystem!
