A fourth grade class in Queens shared their holiday spirit with our ElderCare program this holiday season. As part of a lesson on kindness, teacher April Scott and her students created and delivered holiday cards for our clients. Ms. Scott explains:
“Each month our school has a character education trait that we discuss. The month of December’s trait was kindness. After a class discussion about the holiday season and acts of kindness we could do, we decided to create holiday cards for those who many not be able to be with their families during this time. My students really wanted to embody the idea of giving rather than focus on what they would be receiving for the holidays. We hope that you enjoy our small token of kindness as much as we did creating these cards for you. We want to wish you a very Happy and Healthy New Year.”
Many thanks to Ms. Scott and her fourth-grade elves for their wonderful cards and generous spirits! Check out more photos on Facebook.
