Mrs. Frye’s Kindergartners spent three weeks researching and observing the life cycle of chickens. Students incubated eggs, candled their growth, observed them hatch, examined the shells, and—best of all—enjoyed the cute, fluffy baby chicks! 🐣 Thank you to the Wisconsin 4-H Extension Office and UW-Madison for providing this enriching, hands-on experience.
Wow! Check out the stunning mural featured in Washington Elementary’s cafeteria. 🤩 The mural was funded by the Student Council and painted by Mr. Mane and the 5th grade Art Club.
