James W. Parker Middle School students built their own bluebird habitats today!

Fifth grade students in Mrs. Santos and Mr. Sturgess’ classrooms built a bluebird nesting box, thanks TO the Pennsylvania Wildlife Commission who donated the wood and hardware for 170 habitats.

Wildlife conservation officer Mike Stutts (who has a son in the school) did a lesson with the students, helped them to build the habitats and then had a video for the students to watch.

This was part of the fifth grade science curriculum. Mrs. Santos and Mr. Sturgess hope to continue this activity again next year.
