The De La Salle International Baccalaureate (IB) Program and the DLS Science Department are excited to announce that Mrs. Jackie VanThomme has been chosen as one of only 32 Salmon in the Classroom teachers by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources for the 2018-2019 school year!  

Mrs. VanThomme and her IB Biology and Advanced Placement Biology students will raise salmon, from eggs to smolt, then release them into local watersheds in the spring. In addition to learning about the tenets of biology, caring for the young salmon encourages students to think and care about conservation, and creates a connection between caring for their fish and caring for their local environment.

A number of materials are needed for this endeavor. To help, please see the list on the website.

To make a donation to this project, you may make a restricted gift to the DLS Lasallian Fund.
