May 9, 2018 – West Bend, WI – Students in Marcia Milam’s first-grade class at St. John’s Lutheran in West Bend got an up-close look at their lesson this week as the students gathered on the lawn along Fifth Avenue to watch work crews lift trusses into place at the new Kwik Trip.
“We’re learning about pulleys and simple machines,” said Milam. “I told them we’d go and see the real thing.”
With pads of white drawing paper in their laps 16 students carefully watch the crane-and-pulley system at work and their No. 2 pencils documented what they saw. Some of their impressions are below.
This will be the second Kwik Trip in West Bend. It’s expected to open in June.
