Mrs. Flicek from Green Bay WI is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Oh Me, Oh My! A Butterfly Garden!

My students need plants and caterpillars for our school garden to create a butterfly garden. It also includes a variety of bird feeders to bring in even more nature.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

We are the Bucket Fillers! This means we fill the "buckets" of everyone we are in contact with each and every day. We are kind to all! We spend our days learning and growing together. Each day is an exciting adventure. We are amazing! We are the only STEM-focused elementary school in the area with a specific focus on engineering.

This donation will help provide my students with the materials to help them grow in the areas of STEM.

Our school has over 400 students. We are not a Title I funded school, so we do not receive many of the resources that other schools may have. The average class size is between 25-30 students. We have a strong commitment to excellence and a great parent network. Our staff works together to support our students in any way possible so all students can succeed.

My Project

Our school has a school garden and this project will help to liven this area up even more!

We will create a butterfly garden to help promote insect populations within this area to observe.

My young first-grade students will be able to easily create this with the seed mats. They will also watch the life cycle of the butterfly first hand. In addition to this lovely butterfly garden, we will create a bird watching area with a variety of different bird feeders. Students will really see up close the insects and birds that will use our school garden. They will be in charge of helping to take care of this garden area by watering, weeding, and observing the living things that are there.
