Convent of the Visitation School third-grader Caroline Schlehuber, right, reacts to the many ladybugs crawling on her hand as classmate Logan Kinsella watches. Third-graders from the Mendota Heights school celebrated Earth Day April 22 by releasing 70,000 ladybugs through­out Mall of America’s Nickelodeon Universe amusement park. The ladybugs, which eat aphids and other pests, will act as “green” pesticides to protect the live plants throughout the park. The event is part of an ongoing collaboration between the Mall of America in Bloomington  and Visitation’s third-graders. This year’s theme at the school is “What I Like About Minnesota,” and the third-grade students put the nation’s largest retail and entertainment complex at the top of their list.
