Clear Spring School launched the capital campaign for the Wisdom of the Hands Woodshop Program in the new Phyllis Poe Hands-on Learning Center Friday, June 7, where friends of the school gathered to hear about the exciting new addition.

The Phyllis Poe Hands-on Learning Center will house the current Wisdom of the Hands program led by craftsman Doug Stowe in addition to studios in cooking, art, dance, computers and a makerspace. The capital campaign is to help raise money for the renovation of the new space which includes a larger Wisdom of the Hands Woodshop.

Stowe discussed how important it is for children to have a "hands-on, hearts-engaged" education, which is a core element in the school's mission.

"The fundraiser was very successful and will help get our dream of a hands-on learning center moving forward," said board president Peggy Pot.
