Rebuilt Benches

When she first saw the newly rebuilt benches in the gym, fifth grader Breanna exclaimed, “I didnʼt know Mr. Murphy was a carpenter!” The rest of her class agreed. They were surprised to see the basketball teamʼs bench tops had been replaced by Mr.Murphy over the weekend. The students happened to catch him in the act of sanding the plywood edges smooth. He did an amazing job with this “green” (reduce-reuse- recycle) project– the benches look better than new. Take a look at our photo of Jacob, showing the finished product.

Now think about the two new picnic tables out near the soccer field this autumn. You may have sat on one of them during the games. If you guessed that Mr. Murphy built those too, you were right!

Thanks, Coach, for building smooth new places for us to rest during games. Youʼre the best!
