The classes at GW have been taking turns visiting their next door neighbors at the Hudson Valley Senior Residence.

Ms. Julie and Ms. Bonnie’s class visited on March 28 and had a wonderful time performing our repertoire of songs and singing games for the residents.  Each child also prepared a piece of writing about themselves in order to “break the ice” as he or she met individually with each person.

There was an instant connection between the children and the seniors, and the warmth and appreciation felt by both the children and the seniors is apparent in these photos. Back at school, the children wrote letters to their new friends and look forward to hearing back from them and having them visit the GW Elementary School, too!
