    Manufacturing & Product Development

    Students in Mr. Thede’s Manufacturing and Product Development class have been very busy this nine weeks. They have built our Graduation Podium so that we don’t have to borrow one when we hold our graduation ceremony this spring. In addition to this, they have been raising money by repairing furniture for faculty and building custom made golf club sets and repairing golf clubs. They also have been helping with Community Service projects.

    Creating a Habitat

    MCHS students have worked hard to create safe forest paths and flower planting in the little forest behind the school.  Sam Ballard helped extend the path north from the clearing. He has also made clear boundaries using found logs to help guide pedestrian traffic to stay within paths in order to keep the wild places wild and habitable for the animals and plants that live there. The ground hog that lives back there was spotted on the north edge of the forest.

    Brian Sanders removed deadly nightshade along the forest edge. Taylor Lance helped Sam put in the log barriers. Many students in P.E. and Service learning have contributed time and energy to the gardening projects.

    Service Learning & Environmental/Garden Club Project

    Mrs. Goddard’s Service Learning Students along with Mrs. Campbell’s 1st period class are making a garden and walking path just off the outdoor patio area in the back of the school.  Students cleared a path into the wooded area up to the small creek.  Students also transplanted some of the shrubs in the raised garden space in the courtyard. By next week the garden should be plated.  Our Service Learning Students have been working  very hard for a couple weeks to complete this project.
