Through a grant from DonorsChoose, a crowdfunding resource for teachers, Miss Bozzuto from McCullough Elementary School and her first-grade students got to witness the transformation of caterpillars into butterflies in their butterfly nursery. They released the butterflies on a sunny afternoon in May, right before the school year ended.
