Outdoor Classroom Sign

By Thomas Worth

There is now a sign leading up to the outdoor classroom. Now students and community members will know where to go when they come to the yurt for the first time. I made my sign by burning the letters into the wood by hand. It took me a full 5 days of class to be able to finish the burning on the wood. I brought up my A block class to show them the sign. They thought that it was really good. The sign hangs on a wire that is attached to two trees. I hope that future students will see this sign for years to come.
