WGMS Tech OrnamentsWGMS Students Make Ornaments to Raise Money for Families in Need

The WGMS Tech Club and 8th grade Technology classes mass produced ornaments for the second year in a row. 

The students put their hearts and technology skills into creating them as they used a 3D printer to produce these beautiful ornaments. We currently have the 3D printed ones and our students are also making some wooden ones.

All money raised from the sale of these ornaments will be donated to WGMS families in need during the holiday seasons. If you are interested in buying some, please bring $3 to Eileen Russell in the WGMS Main Office.
