Students with butterflies

Zoey Chomel, left, and Adrianna Marcum are both raising monarch butterflies after learning about them in fifth-grade class at Everton Elementary. Zoey is holding a tent for the insects; Adrianna’s plastic container has milkweed leaves that she feeds the caterpillars.

Two 10-year-old girls are helping raise butterflies that they hope will be able to make an ages-old migration this fall.

Fifth-graders Adrianna Marcum and Zoey Chomel studied monarch butterflies in school at Everton Elementary.
