Bye bye, trout!

We managed to keep our Trout In The Classroom friends happy and healthy, from eyed eggs to sac fry to fingerling, now swimming free in the frigid water by Ashokan…

Good omen? The only patch of water that wasn’t frozen (which was the patch where the trout were released) was in the shape of a heart!

Jayden threw snowballs into the water and when they splashed, we saw trout swimming!

Barbara said, “Do I look majestic?” She does! Thank you to the majestic Barbara for teaching us to love and care for our trout.

One day soon they’ll be beautiful, big…
