Intergenerational Program

Sunrise Assisted Living and The Virginian Retirement Community

Our students have the unique opportunity to participate in an intergenerational program with our senior neighbors at Sunrise Assisted Living and The Virginian Retirement Community. Students of all ages, infants through 6th Graders, have a chance to learn about life experiences from their senior companions. Weekly activities at the homes are both academic and fun. Some of these include:

  • Storytelling
  • Baking
  • Sewing
  • Discussing world governments
  • Studying embassies

.

As a veteran of 29 years, I was proud to see that young people know of the trials that it takes to serve one's country."
