Our Seniors got an amazing opportunity Wednesday and Thursday to realize just how much of a role model they are to our community. Each Senior was assigned an Elementary Teacher and instructed to help that teacher and students during class. From the looks of the photos below the Elementary kids loved seeing and interacting with their Senior pal. We're just not sure who enjoy it more the Seniors or the Elementary Kids, neither wanted the time to end.
During the opportunity to catch our Seniors hanging out in the Elementary classrooms we felt it was a perfect time to also catch the kids during daily learning as well.
***UPDATE: Unfortunately this event has been rescheduled to May 5th due to weather predictions scheduled for tomorrow***
