Trout in the Classroom
Mrs. Clendenin's science classes had a unique experience this year. We raised rainbow trout in our classroom in a 55 gallon aquarium. We took part in Trout Unlimited's program Trout in the Classroom. TU partnered with the SC Department of Natural Resources to provide the materials and eggs for this endeavor. We started with about 200 eyed-eggs in December and released 13 fingerlings on May 13.

We have already made plans with TU for next year and have moved the aquarium to its new home at Taylor!
