KINDERGARTEN STUDENTS MAKING A DIFFERENCE

 

  Just before the holidays, our kindergarten students visited Murray House, an assisted living facility which is a mission of the Episcopal Church.  The students worked with their 8th grade big brothers and big sisters to create beautiful Christmas posters for each resident and practiced ahead of time with Mrs. Rice to sing holiday favorites.  The residents were so appreciative!  Fr. Ken received a wonderful thank you note from a resident expressing how grateful they were for the visit, the art, the songs and the hugs! Pictured are Mrs. Gwin and students along with Ann Carson, a Murray House resident and one of our school founders!
