Hope Hall will host its annual woodworking sale from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the school located at 1612 Buffalo Road.
The event, which is free and open to the public, supports the school’s Woodworking Center. Masks are required.
A range of handcrafted wood pieces will be for sale, including toys and doll furniture, holiday décor, and furnishings for home and storage, created by staff and volunteers.
Launched in 2014, the woodworking program was designed to merge academic instruction with career skills in a hands-on approach to learning.
It starts as an after-school program in the lower grades and becomes a sequenced, credit-bearing program in the tenth through twelfth grades. Upon completion students are career and college ready.
“Each year upon graduation, a number of our students are immediately employed by local firms where carpentry and cabinet making skills are sought,” said Sister Diana Dolce, the school’s executive director and founder. “For those students who go on to college or other careers, the many skills they learn through our woodworking program are invaluable in helping them become successful in future endeavors.”
Established in 1994, Hope Hall is a private school for students in grades 3-12 who experience frustration in a traditional classroom setting.
