The Shining Star class partnered up with residents of Skylark Assisted Living Center to be grand-buddies. Two times a month they met to have some fun together. They read together, played games, created art and spent time sharing experiences and laughter. The students performed reader’s theater on Dr. Seuss's birthday and at the end of the year they had a grand celebration with games, pizza and a piñata. Reaching out into the community was a valuable experience for all and the relationships that were created were priceless.
