Celebrating Earth Day
Chesterbrook Academy, 1550 Valley Center Parkway, Bethlehem, held its annual ladybug launch April 20 in celebration of Earth Day.
On a very bright and cool morning, students headed outside for the event wearing their ladybug hats with antennas.
At 10 a.m. Principal Michele Somishka released a bag of approximately 1,500 ladybugs and the kids enthusiastically swarmed around the bugs, picking them up and holding them in their hands.
Leading up to the launch, the students learned all about ladybugs and their effect on the environment. Seeing and touching the bugs added a positive learning experience for the students.
The launch continues to be one of the most popular events held at Chesterbrook Academy.
