In May some of the members of theWashburn Woodworking Club took a trip to our nation's capitol. In order to attend the trip each student needed to complete 100 hours with the club.

They also completed various fundraisers and community service projects within the community-- including an energy efficiency project for the Salmon Brook Historical Society, as well as detailing cars and building storage sheds. They worked extremely hard and we're very proud of their work.

While on the trip they toured the Springfield Technical Community College, which was home to the Springfield Armory, and the museum on site. They went to the National Mall and toured the monuments as well as the Smithsonian of Natural History, American History, and the National Air and Space Museum. The students were given a tour of the Capitol Building through Bruce Poloquins office. A trip to Ford's Theater showcased the spot Lincoln was shot in. The students also visited Medieval Times for some food and fun!
The students enjoyed the trip, as well as the educational experience. Through the club they have learned patience, responsibility, and that hard work results in fulfilling rewards! 



Dear Parents:

I want to apologize for this short notice, but due to a budget meeting on the 18th, which was the night we were planning to hold our Spring Sports Awards, it has become necessary to change the Spring Sports Awards to Wednesday, June 17 at 6:30 p.m. in the Doc Albert Gymnasium. 

Your son/daughter has put in many hard and rewarding hours during the spring sports season. We are proud of the job our student athletes have done and would like to recognize them for their accomplishments. I sincerely hope you will accompany your son/daughter and help ourathletic staff make this a meaningful experience. I look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, June 17!
