Catherine C. Locke 

Family Science Teacher

 Marshwood Middle School


       As a community service project that would help others locally during COVID 19, Marshwood Middle School Family Science students were challenged by their teacher Cathy Locke to design and sew face masks for their families, friends and community members.  The students went above and beyond and created over 400 masks that were donated and distributed to individuals in the surrounding communities.  Masks were distributed to the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, local nursing homes, and retail store workers.  Students also made masks for their siblings, parents, grandparents and neighbors. Students even mailed masks to their grandparents.   For every mask made, the student earned a raffle ticket for a drawing of a “Movie Basket” filled with goodies.  The random drawing of the 15 baskets was held on May 8th and the baskets were picked up curbside or delivered to the students’ homes this week.  

A special thank you to all students who participated and to their families for their support in this project that helped make a difference in the lives of others.
