First Grade Focus Area: The Elderly
Our first graders learn about issues faced by the elderly. By visiting a local nursing home students learn to bridge generational gaps and appreciate the contributions older people have made. St. Paul’s School partners with a local nursing home in a “Grandfriends” program. Students visit the nursing home several times through the year to bring holiday cards and decorations, to sing to the residents, and to visit with and read to the residents.
