Arbor Vitae-Woodruff students are building directional signs to post along U.S. Highway 51.

Two groups of sixth-grade students are working on the signs, according to Blaine Wauters, a fifth- and sixth-grade science and math teacher. 

One sign will be for the east side of the highway, the other sign for the west side, he said.

Students designed the shape of the sign, cut and sanded it, stenciled the lettering and managed the painting.

According to Wauters, interim school Superintendent Richard Vought brought the project to fruition after noticing a lack of directional signs along Hwy. 51 pointing toward the school. Vought then applied for a permit to get permission for the signs.

Wauters said the project has had some hiccups along the way, particularly with stencils and overspray. Nonetheless, the signs are “in the fine-tuning stage,” he said.

The signs are slated to be finished by the end of this week, according to Wauters. He did not know when they would be posted along the highway.
