Intergenerational Program

In conjunction with our Character Education Program, we have established an Intergenerational Program with various Sunrise Assisted Living Communities in the area. The program gives our children opportunities to share what they are doing in the classroom and what inspires them through the seasons. During past holiday seasons, our children have performed some seasonal songs for the men and women at Sunrise. The children shine at these events.  They get to greet and interact with the residents, and they also practice using appropriate manners.  We also do things like participating in sing-a-longs for Halloween. The children wear their costumes to the center and bringour grand friends some Halloween treats.  The opportunities that are presented through this program help mold the children into the fine citizens that we take pride in helping shape here at Appletree. Here is a video clip from a recent Halloween visit.

 

Some other things we do together include:

  • Storytelling
  • Interviewing
  • Sharing projects and art
  • Creating art together
  • Reading books together

 

Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.
