More than two dozen Magnet students from McKenna Elementary School in the Massapequa School District recently celebrated the beginning of spring at the Bristal Assisted Living Center. The students and seniors dyed pastel-colored eggs and played games such as Scrabble and Guess Who.
At the end of the session, the youngsters gave the seniors Easter egg baskets and cards to brighten up their rooms. Throughout the event, the students utilized 21st century skills that they learned in the classroom, including communication, compassion, respect and citizenship.
“This was a successful community project, thanks to the support of the Bristal staff members and the class mothers” said Magnet teacher Michelle Locher.
