Students from Garrett Grommesh's fifth grade class came to watch the new home going up. While their classmate from Hopkins Elementary is basking in the sun in Bahamas, the students came to cheer on the volunteers and home builders.

“It is an awesome experience for them to see that people are volunteering their time and not asking anything in return. We talk about the golden rule and a great real life experience and how great it is to do things for other people.”

Students from Horizon Middle School came after school to check out the progress too.
