LIMERICK Chesterbrook Academy preschool students hosted a ladybug release in celebration of Earth Day on April 19. Preschool students released thousands of ladybugs into the environment.

Throughout the week leading up to the release, students at Chesterbrook Academy, 70 Buckwalter Road, Suite 750, learned that ladybugs feed on aphids (plant lice) and other insects that are harmful to gardens, trees and shrubs. Chesterbrook Academy teaches the importance of community and exploring nature at a young age.
