Liberty Anderson, eighth-grader, (left) learns to make a birdhouse with members of the Eastern Michigan Woodworkers at Kearsley High School, Wednesday, June 6.

The Eastern Michigan Woodworkers traveled to KHS on Wednesday, June 6, to help students from Mr. Cory Fisher’s class make bird houses.

The dedicated team donates not only their time but also all of the materials needed to make theses projects with no cost.

The birdhouses are being sold to support costs for The Special Olympics, which takes place each spring.

Fisher is grateful that his students were given this opportunity.

“It gives students a chance to do hands-on tasks with wood and other materials that they wouldn’t normally do at home,” Fisher said.

KHS was able to include two other elementary schools in the experience.

“We were able to provide this opportunity to not only just students at the high school but also for Dowdell and Fiedler students,” Fisher said.
