Sept. 27 was a big day for Raymore-Peculiar High School field biology students as they experienced the peak of the monarch migration. Working with Teacher Mike Roberts, they observed about 100 monarchs, and tagged and released 18 monarchs. Students also released three that were raised in the classroom.
This action put Ray-Pec High School on the MAP -- literally. Follow link to see map.
Earlier this month, students worked to establish habitat to attract monarchs.
Increasing science opportunities and incorporating real-world, hands-on learning opportunities are both important parts of the District's Strategic Plan, under the focus area of Success Ready Students.
