The labor-intensive task of stripping and sanding old paint from the interior walls of Ross School has begun.

John Hoffman, whose wife Mary Lynn works at Butler School, volunteered to take on the task after learning about the district’s restoration efforts. He arrived Thursday, Oct. 19 with scraper and sandpaper in hand.

A bit of a DIY-er at home, Hoffman brought his woodworking skills and carpentry skills to Ross School.
