If you have driven by school lately, you may have noticed our new school signs. If you haven’t had a chance to see them yet, please check them out when you can.  

Our school is so thankful for everyone that worked together to make these signs a reality. This project was put into motion when our community relations committee decided something needed to be done about the old signs that were put up by the Shop class of 1978. It is bittersweet to see the old signs go, but they were very weathered and deteriorated. 

So almost fifty years later, the shop class of 2021 took on the challenge of designing and building the new signs. This time we had the benefit of having a CNC plasma table to cut out the letters and mascots. The next challenge was deciding how to make the backdrop of the signs. It was decided that western red cedar would be the best material choice to ensure a long life. 

The creation of these signs was truly a community effort. The school would like to thank Karla and Orlyn Hoksch for their generous donation of the beautiful cedar wood to build these signs. The sandblasting and powder coating of the letters and mascots was done by Ron Radatz of R&J Sandblasting. The graphic for the mascots was completed by Graphic Image of Fountain City. All of these people working together, giving their time, and talents made this project a reality.
