Grass Lake School held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Makerspace on September 1. This event was a yearlong culmination of repurposing of the original 1900 schoolhouse into a collaborative workspace for making, learning, exploring, and sharing high tech to no tech tools for prekindergarten through eighth-grade students. 

The festivities in the afternoon included unveiling the Makerspace to the families and students for the 2022-23 school year. Students had a chance to tour the space. The evening was a kick off for curriculum night as teachers, parents and board members gathered to celebrate the finished product with a tour and donated treats from community supporter Lovin Oven Cakery.
