Many students and teachers (too many to name) volunteered time to help construct the base for our soon-to-be wood-fired pizza oven. There were three kids, however, that truly went above and beyond. At 3 o'clock, when high school kids generally become scarce, Connor Barrett, Lucas Eldred, and Ethan Eldred hung around to help finish construction. Nearly 2 hours, and 16 - 80 lb bags of cement later, we were done! A strong Solon Salute to Connor, Lucas, and Ethan!
