The La Farge School District's woodworking class, led by Mr. Fowell, built cubbies for the Forest School this past spring. This past week, they were finished and are now on their way to the KVFS classroom at the Kickapoo Valley Reserve. Thanks to LFSD's woodworking students and Mr. Fowell! These cubbies will soon hold the boots, backpacks, raincoats, and lunchboxes of our 32 incoming 4K & 5K students!
