Celebrate Life!

Mary Steenwyk's avatar Mary Steenwyk

Celebrate Life! Life is resilient, beautiful, and precious! As my kindergarten students at Jenison Christian and I experienced the effects of the pandemic and virtual learning in 2020, we wanted to celebrate life and bring joy to others. That is why we created butterflies! My current students in 2021 added to our butterfly collection. As we studied life cycles in creation, experienced masking, and social distancing in “in-person learning”, we again celebrated how resilient, beautiful, and precious life is to everyone. I hope that the butterflies I have strung together help each person celebrate the joy and hope in life’s journeys.
