Students in Nathan Boelhauf’s wood shop classes at Escondido High School have been learning about more than wood grain, jig saws and hand planes. They’ve been designing, building and refining child-sized tables and chairs that were delivered before Christmas to one family in need at each of Escondido’s 11 elementary schools. Along with each set, the families received other items donated by the students and staff, including games (Mancala, Chutes/Ladders, Scrabble Jr.), art supplies (paper, crayons, etc.), books (“Very Hungry Caterpillar,” “Rosie Revere,” “Creature ABC,” etc.), and a “plush” Cougar, the school’s mascot.
