WELCOME

Madroña Elementary School is a caring community working together for the education and well being of our children. We constantly refine, adapt, and strengthen our strong academic program. Madroña's mission focuses on student academic, social, physical, and psychological growth; the right of every child to a challenging educational program; a hand-in-hand relationship between home and school; and a commitment to life-long learning.

Welcome to our school.

Woodshop Fall 2014

Chess/Checker Board

 

  Students learn about tools, design and assembly. Woodshop is fun, rewarding and educational. Participants take pride in creating something out of wood and feel a sense of accomplishment as they craft their project and watch it develop into something recognizable. During the process they are both learning and having fun. We teach basic woodshop skills with a focus on safety. Children learn how to saw, glue, measure, drill, nail, follow directions, think for themselves and design. Everyone remembers woodshop!

 

This session we are building a Chess Board. Children will build their chess/checker boards from wood which they cut to size and then assemble using wood glue and clamps. The board folds with hinges that the children will learn to put in. The box will close with a clasp. The box can hold chess/checker pieces or can be used as a pencil box, jewelry box or hold some other valuables. It is a fun project that will require a good deal of measuring and cutting. It is a wonderful show piece and fun to use too.
