Maurice W. Downing School’s first grade students in Mrs. Kim Piccola’s class, Mrs. Katie Smyth’s class, and Mrs. Amanda Correia’s and Mrs. Jennifer Eisenberg’s class wrote festive letters to their pen pals in the Atria Assisted Living in Lynbrook, which were delivered before the holiday break.
The Downing Cares : Atria Cares inter-generational partnership has been ongoing for several years. The partnership includes the pen pal project and virtual guest readers. Due to COVID-19, students were unable to do their annual singalong so instead they brought holiday cheer by writing to their Atria friends.
The school and center anticipate an exciting new year filled with strengthening relationships and sharing kindness.
