Students at Pulaski Community Middle School have been a part of the process of making maple syrup.

Friday marked the final process of maple syruping, "boiling the sap". Teachers and students work together by tapping the trees, collecting the sap and boiling it.

Staff say they're lucky to have 30 plus maple trees around their school.

“So, it’s a way to connect the kids to the outdoors, what they see around them, and what makes Wisconsin special,” said 7th grade science teacher Dave Landers.

“Every morning I’ve been out here, emptying bags, moving barrels, dumping barrels, barrels to the chiller, I think it's great opportunity to expand your learning outside the classroom," 7th grade student Cade Willer.

This is the school’s 14th year doing a nature maple syrup project.
