WDHS Woodworking Club in Washington D.C
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.
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!
