 Mansfield St. Peter's second grade students and third grade students from Stingel Elementary School in Ontario celebrated their year-long "pen pal project" with a picnic at Marshall Park in Ontario Friday afternoon.

The students met face to face for the first time after writing back and forth throughout the school year. Teachers Liz Mulherin and Diane Michael developed the activity three years ago as a fun way for the students to learn English composition while following course curriculum.

Mulherin says the kids look forward to writing letters to their pen pals and receiving back responses throughout the school year. She added that meeting their pen pals for the first time is a fun experience and the kids always have a great time with one another.
