(Essex) — The virtues of a small school district will be on display at Essex next week.
Preparations continue for the Essex School District’s “Come See Our Schools Night” next Friday from 5-to-8 p.m. at the district’s K-12 complex. Speaking on KMA’s “Morning Line” program Friday morning, Essex School Superintendent Dr. Mike Wells says the third annual event is designed to showcase the district’s many programs.
“We have lasers, where kids will actually get to burn and use the laser machines,” said Wells. “We have a planetarium, we have virtual reality, we have drones that kids can fly around, and learn to program, we have 3-D printing, a scuba diving station. Then, from 5-to-5:30, we’ll have the house that our students are building. Families can come and look at that house, as well.”
Many new programs were inaugurated at Essex this school year…
