The school is looking to raise $30,000 to start crafting the pole. Principal Jay Dixon says the school is has received a lot of help so far.

“We’ve raised about $18,000 at this point and we will be having log donated in-kind and that [is] a huge boost to making this project come to be,” he says.

Donations can be made at the school.
