Watershed School launches community project
Camden — The Watershed School of Camden has begun an initiative to install storm windows into two Rockland residences.
Storm windows are going to be installed by trained and supervised students before the winter school break in late December.
The All School Project includes students in grades 9 through 12 and emphasizes interdisciplinary skills such as collaborative problem solving, networking, design, mathematics, planning, and promotion to implement community service projects in the Midcoast area.
As winter approaches, students agreed that installing interior storm windows would be a valuable project to offer the community. Storm windows, described in their most basic definition as a plastic layer inserted into the frame of a window, keep cold air outside and warm air indoors, reducing any excess use of heating oil which will, by extension, reduce the overall expense of household utilities as well as creating a more environmentally friendly home.
The Watershed School is an independent high school located at 32 Washington St. in Camden. To receive more information about the project, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
