Students in Michelle Steger’s fifth grade academic focus class at Sedalia Middle School made recycled owl art Friday morning. The art project will be auctioned off in April for the Hearts for Haiti Silent Auction to benefit Strong Tower Orphanage in Caracol, Haiti. Melinda Moore, center, helps students thread wire through the “owl” to position its talons, while Strong Tower Board President Lorie Holt, left, cuts flashing for feathers and Cesar Ricardo, 10, in green shirt, waits his turn.

Mason Kumm, 11, waits his turn for supplies to work on his project. “Melinda Moore and Krista Kempton are the creative minds behind the project,” Holt said. “And, Mrs. Steger was gracious to let us come in here for a couple days to do this project.

Moore helps Jorge Noriega, 10, place washers on his owl. Moore explained earlier to the children that they would be working on the owl’s talons and creating “feather” tufts on its head. The owls were created with jar lids, copper and foil flashing and various recycled hardware.
