When Sawyer Smallwood ’18 was researching ideas for his Eagle Scout Service Project, the Little School at Country Day jumped out at him — what better way to serve the community than at his very own school?
Sawyer met with Director of the Little School Pamela Connor to discuss the School’s needs, and new outdoor play structures was one of them. Sawyer devised a plan and, with the help of his father and some friends, built a set of benches, balance beams and a large “mud kitchen” for the little ones to use and enjoy.
The final product was above and beyond Ms. Pamela’s expectations, and the students have been enjoying playing with the new structures, especially the kitchen — fully equipped with toy pots and pans supplied by Sawyer, as well as a hose that will be ready to use in the warmer summer months.
Thank you to Sawyer for giving back to the community in a way that supports our littlest Hornets!
