TCCS students help out the community

Photo submitted to Times Observer Students in the Tidioute Community Charter School industrial arts program assist with the installation of an entrance ramp for a local resident. The students have been fabricating ramp modules for projects like this one for the last year and will continue to do so.

Community efforts are ramping up at Tidioute Community Charter School.

Students recently assembled a 20-foot entrance ramp to a local residence.

For the past year, TCCS industrial arts students had been fabricating ramp parts for Kane Ramp Ministry, according to Office Manager Heather Cass.

Kane Ramp and the students got together for the construction phase, too.

That project took about three hours.

“The ability to see how the ramps come together and to assist in the set-up was a bonus for students,” Cass said. “It is nice to see the kids out in the community helping, and understanding that what we are doing in class serves a purpose.”

The industrial arts program will continue to make the ramp modules.
