A local middle school gets a $5000 face lift -- Compliment of Lowe's.
Langford Middle School, in Augusta, broke ground today on a small pond to house 25 fish.
Volunteers and Langford football players pitched in -- digging the pond and carrying rocks to line it.
Teachers say this is an effort to give students a more hands on learning experience.
"I think it's very important that they have some outdoor spaces. When you're in the classroom all day, it can get kind of boring. But if you can actually get a hands approach, in real life, and see what it really means of course it's going to be more important to you."
Mrs. D'Amico says the pond will be open for the entire school; however her Integrated Autism classes will be responsible for the upkeep of the pond.
