Students enrolled in woodworking have adopted a new community project dedicated to the local veteran community. This work began many years ago, when retired shop teacher Dave Paynter started making the shadow boxes for the local VFW. Ironwood Area School Shop Program has pledged to continue the project. These shadow boxes house the shells of the shots fired at the funerals of veterans as well as the American flag. The shells reference the practice of firing three shots on the battlefield to signal a pause in fighting to remove the bodies of fallen soldiers. They also represent the three words, duty, honor, and country. The boxes are gifted to the families of veterans who have passed.

Students from Mrs. Lavinder's 4th grade class created marshmallow masterpieces yesterday. They started by creating igloos, and were so successful, that they added on to build larger structures. Excellent work!

Our final product.
On Friday, 1/6, students from the 4th grade learned how sound waves travel through material. They started by making paper cup telephones, and found that they could talk to each other. Next, they tried connecting two phone lines together, and finally four lines, which all worked. They were having so much fun, they didn't want to stop!
