House Construction Class

The Appleton Area School District’s House Construction class engages community partnerships that culminate in a win-win-win for all involved. This partnership spans local businesses and contractors, nonprofits, schools, and instructors in an effort to show students hands-on, real-world experience in all aspects of the construction field.

For the past ten years AASD students under the direction of a district teacher has built a home for the Appleton Housing Authority. For the 2017-2018 school year the district has partnered with the Greater Fox Cities Area Habitat for Humanity to build a house during the first semester, and renovate a second house during the second semester.  

The partnership with Habitat for Humanity is being funded by former AASD teacher, Mary Beth Nienhaus.   

Students from East, North, and West high schools spend two hours each school day with teacher, Marcus McGuire, building the house.
