WMS Students Give Back to Their Classmates
The Woodshop students at WMS have finished a project that has allowed for them to give back to their classmates. There was an identified need for equipment that could be used to help our students learn. The woodshop, under the direction of Mr. Kenny Collins, constructed balance boards at the request of another teacher. These balance boards allow for movement while learning and support the learning needs of many students. Each student completed a balance board and then donated them to the school. It is a great way for these students to leave their mark on our fantastic school! Way to go Bulldogs!!!
