Crystal Dennie’s 5th-grade class from Riverside Intermediate went to Autumn Trace Assisted Living last week to play bingo with the residents.
The fifth-grade teams go for 30 to 45 minutes to interact with residents and work on communication skills. They also get to hear some inspiring stories from these individuals.
Lauren LaFaiveIt, Director of Communications and Marketing for the Plymouth Community School Corporation said, “It is so beautiful to see our children with our older population, playing a game together and engaging in conversation.”
Mrs. Dennie said, “This is the first year Riverside Intermediate School is partnering with Autumn Trace, and they look forward to seeing the relationship grow and how this impacts our kids. So many lessons learned already.”
