A story for the young and the young at heart, these high schoolers just used their budding talents to benefit a local elementary school.
Students partaking in the Construction CTE program at Mt. Hope High School helped collaborate to create an exciting gift to Hugh Cole youngsters enamored with one of the nation’s latest gaming crazes — building a “Gaga Pit” for the school’s use during an outing last Wednesday, May 31.
“Many students across grade levels and state are playing this fun new game of Gaga Ball. It’s a fast pace group game where a students tries to roll a ball to hit the feet of another,” said Hugh Cole teacher Tracy Earl. “This is where the pit comes in. Its octagonal sides project the ball in various directions, making it a truly fun game. We were very lucky to have a nearby school install one recently, and they shared their designs. In conjunction with the Mt. Hope construction teachers and staff, and with PTO funds, the project was accepted. It will be a recess game available for all to play."
"This collaboration is to be treasured and commended for teaching life skills.”
