Some local middle school students got out of the classroom today, and into the pool. But they worked a lot harder than they would sitting at their desks.
It was community service day for seventh grade students at Wood County Christian School in Williamstown.
The students spent the day at the Marietta Aquatic Center scrubbing the pool, picking weeds and putting lawn furniture together.
Those we caught up with say it's a rewarding experience.
"It makes me feel pretty good, because it makes me think about the community a lot more," Elisabeth Adkins said.
"I come here a lot in the summer, and we might as well just make it better," Chase Kincaid said.
"When people come here and ask who did all this, you can say that you were here to do it," Ben Adkins said.
Some other seventh graders from the school spent the day volunteering at the library.
