Lanigan 2nd graders help others on shopping trip


Lanigan Elementary School second-graders have made sure their neighbors won’t go hungry around the holidays.
During a recent field trip to Tops, the students embraced empathy and compassion as they shopped for baby foods and breakfast, lunch and dinner items. The culmination activity to the student’s academic unit on community also provided lessons in wants versus needs and economics as they compared prices of nonperishable food items.
Students selected cereal boxes, nutrition bars, jars of baby food, canned soups, boxed stuffing, and macaroni and cheese, among hundreds of other items to donate to Catholic Charities of Oswego County.
