Kiel High School Technical Education teacher Ted Bonde and his construction class tours performing arts center

Kiel High School Technical Education teacher Ted Bonde and his construction class recently toured the new performing arts center which is under construction at the school. Red bricks are being installed outside, and painting was started in the auditorium. The class learned about “dryfall” paint which dries before it hits the ground so that drips only need to be swept up. Photos show students standing in the concession area and on the catwalk. Bonde said the workers deserve a “huge shout out. David Dickinson from the Hoffman crew has been an excellent tour guide. He isn’t just showing us around, he is educating our students with passion for the trade. He also has helped to set up speakers within the various trades during both of our tours. The first time our construction students went through this building they saw the concrete structure and the roof being finished. This time they were able to speak with electricians, plumbers, and take a full tour of the catwalk and orchestra pit. FYI, there are a lot of stairs to get up and down the main tower. There would be no way that I could give these students this type of experience or education without the cooperation and efforts of the guys behind the scenes at the PAC.     I can’t thank them enough for helping teach our students like they have.  Tell them thank you if you see any of the construction crew. I look forward to the next tour in January where we get to see the finishing crews and learn more about their trades.”
