Killington Elementary School 4th graders tend the Sugar Shack

Killington Elementary School has its own active sugar shack that students in the fourth grade are responsible for tending daily. Students check on the fire every 20 minutes, to ensure the sap continues to boil down, and they take their jobs seriously. By the end of the season, they expect to have produced over 40 gallons of syrup, all from the trees in the school yard.
