The 8th grade students took the time to refinish some 40-year old tables located in the Tech. Ed. classroom with new lumber. The students then sanded them down, put a clear coat on them, and took pride in knowing that these new improved tables for all the students’ use was because of their hard work.
Over 40 year old Shop Tables Renewed by the 8th Grade Tech Ed Students
When working together, our students can accomplish great things and successfully make a difference to improve their school. In fact, evidence of this is being shown from an eighth grade project in Mrs. Dilly’s Tech Ed class. The class is building eight picnic tables for our students and staff to use. Pride is not in short supply, for many of the students were not only taking class time to work on these tables but working on it during their recess and any other spare time they could find. Each picnic table will be slightly different displaying a different message on each one. Mrs. Dilly said that she is proud of our students and she could not be happier with their work effort or their finished project.
Nathan Russell built this mailbox for the Physical Education department. After building the box, he stained it and wood burned the writing on the front. He didn’t stop there; he delivered and hung it in the gym for the PE staff. THANKS, Nathan, it was greatly needed and appreciated!
Santanna Wolford, Ivy Ward and Taylor Williams wanted to show our administrators, Mrs. Warner, Mr. Reynolds, and Mrs. Blend as well as Mrs. Stewart, our “Technology Lady” (as she is called by our students), just how special they are to our school.
They created, designed, built and put all the personalized touches to these nice organizational boxes for their desks. Thanks girls!!! We at B-UMS all feel that these people are pretty special to our school. J
Mrs. McVaney is in a part time new role this year. She is one of our PE teachers for one period. Ivy Ward has Mrs. McVaney for that class and wanted to do something special for her to let Mrs. McVaney know that she felt she was doing a great job in that position. Ivy built Mrs. McVaney a name plate telling her that she was the “Best Gym Teacher Ever”. Mrs. McVaney’s smile on her face says it all! J
