Getting crafty at St.Mike’s

St. Mike’s carpentry students aren’t just building bird feeders and toolboxes, they’re building the foundation of their futures.


Thanks to a partnership between the school’s woodworking program and the Mustang Saddlery down the road, students are learning to build things out of wood with their own hands while understanding the ins and outs of business. The saddlery has sold student-built bird feeders and tool boxes with proceeds going back to the school’s carpentry program.


“It’s the kids from start to finish,” St. Michael’s High School Principal Debbie Piccard said. “It’s teaching them so many life skills.”
