Rare Wood Donation Enhances Tech Classes at MS


Eighth-graders in Joe Ancona’s technology classes at the middle school were the beneficiaries of a recent donation of exotic lumber by Scott Woodrick, an alumnus of East Islip High School’s Class of 1983 and president of Unique Statements in Wood, Inc.

Ancona’s classes, who spend 20 weeks of the school year in traditional hands-on labs, are currently working on a unit in manufacturing and fabrication, and the donation will allow them to enhance their project with expensive species of wood.
