Since October, first-graders and kindergartners from Journey Charter school have been visiting residents at Maplecrest once a month.
Typically when they arrive, they sing a few songs and read short stories with Maplecrest’s tenants.
In May and June, those tenants went to their school to visit them in their classrooms as well.
Last week, the students visited again, this time singing, reading poetry and creating “friendship quilts” with the tenants.
“Our tenants have also started a pen-pal program with the first- graders and just love writing the students and getting their letters,” said Nicole Moniz of Maplecrest. “We look forward to continuing this wonderful program again in the fall with the school.”
