Now here’s a worthy school project that any parent this side of a PETA member would be proud to have their children be a part of. Eighth-graders at Holy Cross School in Scott, Wisconsin are taking part in a program to build hunting platforms for disabled deer hunters.

From this story in the Green Bay Press Gazette:
Joe Cherney and his Holy Cross School classmates spent Monday learning about construction — and a good deal more. The 20 members of the school’s eighth-grade class learned about teamwork and helping others, as they spent the afternoon on a project to help hunters with disabilities. “It’s great — it’s doing something for the community,” said Cherney, of Stangelville in Kewaunee County.

With the help of their teacher and volunteers from Wisconsin Public Service and Wisconsin River Power Co., students built wooden decks that hunters can use during the WPS annual deer hunt near Necedah in central Wisconsin. The event enables six to eight people with breathing and mobility problems to participate in the gun deer hunt.

A big pat on the back to the eighth-graders of Holy Cross. Are your children involved in any similar hunting, fishing or conservation-themed school philanthropy projects? Tell us about them.
