Food for the hungry: Students in Mrs. Leonard’s second-grade class at St. Patrick School in Hubbard regularly donate canned goods, clothing and money to help those in need. Recently they decided also to help their feathered friends during the winter months by providing food for the hungry birds. Jeffery Hazy, one of the students who participated in the hands-on project, is shown as he coated one of the large pinecones with peanut butter before rolling it in bird seed. Once the pinecones were prepared, they were hung in trees as a holiday treat for the birds.
