The salmon have hatched!

If you haven’t been in the school lately, you might want to come in and check out the fish tank in the hallway. There are a couple dozen coho salmon that have hatched and are swimming about.  They will be released into the Washougal River at the Sandy Swimming Hole toward the end of the school year.  It’s a great hands-on learning opportunity for the kids since they get to raise salmon throughout the entire school year, learning about important science concepts such as models, systems, subsystems, observations, and gathering evidence.
