Paradise Canyon Elementary School students celebrated Earth Week by attending presentations by Diana Sherwood of the Theodore Payne Foundation, who talked about the monarch butterfly. Students learned about their life cycle and need for the milkweed plant. Students colored butterfly pictures and were given milkweed seeds to plant in their yards to help local monarch butterflies flourish. Parent volunteers were on hand to help with the activities. The event was chaired by parents Dena Snedden and Maria Dakessian.
