Our salmon arrived today! Columbia Springs Fish Hatchery delivers them to us twice a year. The students had fun reviewing the life cycle, habitat and feeding habits of the Coho salmon. There appear to be 15 of them, although it is hard to keep track as they move around so much.
Folks who walk through our halls love to stop and take notice of the newest inhabitants of Riverside Christian School. We will release them in December. This Salmon in the Classroom program enriches our ecosystem studies this quarter and makes the students more aware of taking care of the river across the street from the school.
