Memorial Eighth Grade Student Leaders Spend Quality Time with Senior Citizens


A handful of 8th grade students invested some “quality time” with community senior citizens, engaging with them about their life, asking personal questions and just getting to know members of this “Greatest Generation” a little better. Thanks to the help of the Community Partnership on Aging, Memorial Junior High students traveled to the South Euclid Community Center earlier this week to meet senior citizens. Once there, students had conversations with the seniors, asked them questions and exercised. One generous and thoughtful senior citizen even talked with SEL students about the board game chess, and instructed them on how to play a card game. Another senior citizen, Peggy, shared with our students how she was a 1967 graduate of Brush High School. It was a true learning experience that was enjoyed by everyone. Thank you to the Community Partnership on Aging and our Memorial students who served as fine representatives of our school district.
