On April 15, Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School students and teachers gathered at Glenbrook Square Mall to build their Canstruction entry. Canstruction is an annual competition among local schools that benefits Community Harvest Food Bank. The entries are formations made entirely of canned foods and other foods. This year’s theme for the canned food entries is cartoons.
The Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School entry is titled “The Veggie Tales of Saint Elizabeth” and includes canned foods formations set up to resemble Bob the Tomato, Larry the Cucumber, Laura Carrot, Archibald Asparagus and Mr. Lunt the Gourd, all about to board Noah’s Ark.
A group of 7th graders helped to design and build the canned foods formations, which teaches STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) concepts, according to teacher-advisor Mrs. Jodi Jump. Other teacher-advisors included: Mrs. Deb Brough, Mrs. Michelle Voigt and Mrs. Kristin Spoltman. The Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic School 7th graders taking part were Sarah Busch, Catherine Bougher, Lucy Bryan, Justin Stuczynski, Jacob Schroeder, Talia Keiffer, Mackenzie Lee, Andrea Moloci, Olivia Powers and Christopher Svitek.
The Canstruction entries are on view at Glenbrook Square Mall through April 24, after which all the canned foods will be donated to Community Harvest Food Bank.
