(Photo Courtesy of the Wakefield Public Schools) W AKEFIELD – Northeast Metro Tech carpentry students recently completed a project to help some youngsters exercise their creativity while staying organized. Northeast Metro Tech carpentry sophomores Jose Verde, of Chelsea, Brady McKinley, of Woburn, Lucky Bustamante, of Everett, David DeFilippo, of Reading, Esaw Solis Molina, of Saugus, and Christopher Quinom, of Chelsea, created eight marker holders for students at the Greenwood Elementary School in Wakefield. The project came to fruition after Greenwood art teacher Amy Drago realized she needed a better way for her students to store their markers. “The caps are too difficult for the little ones to snap closed so caps go missing and markers get dried out,” Drago said. “The marker holders are not a new concept, and you can purchase them in a store, but they are very expensive for a public school art budget.” Given Northeast Metro Tech’s strong community partnerships, Drago knew exactly who to ask to help her complete the project. She reached out to Northeast’s carpentry department earlier this month to create wooden marker holders. Students quickly got to work, cutting out eight blocks of wood and then drilling 24 holes in each block that MARKER HOLDERS | SEE PAGE 5 SKATING CENTER www.Roller-World.com | 781-231-1111 Located adjacent to Honey Baked Ham in Saugus Plaza, South Bound Route 1 MBTA Bus Route 429 FREE WI-FI - 2 WIDE SCREEN TV’S FULLY AIR CONDITIONED Fall-Winter Skating Schedule ATTENTION!
