Private Independent school from PK through 12th grade.
Lower School Art Incorporates Shop Component
Students in Pre-k through 4th grade are getting a new hands-on experience in the Lower School. Outside of the normal art schedule, students will be learning how to use hand tools while working with wood. All pieces that are constructed will be functional and placed around campus. Among the many projects planned, Kindergarten students will be creating a bench, while Pre-k will be working on a side table. Many of these used tools and cast-off lumber have been donated by Hammond families. Woodworking employs a set of skills largely untapped in school, but also supports concepts being addressed in the classroom. From motor skills to math skills, the Lower School Shop class builds more than just a bench.
