The Bridges Program – Bringing the District and Senior Center Together

Thanks to the leadership of Myrna Saltman, the school district introduced an intergenerational program in grade four this year.  By all accounts the program has been a great success.  The culminating event is a field trip where students participate in several activities at the senior center and stay for lunch.  The friendships that were established over the six week program were evident.

Thank you Myrna!  I hope we can continue to expand the Bridges program to include all fourth grade classrooms.
