Yesterday, our third grade class visited the residents of Redeemer Village in Huntingdon Valley, PA to celebrate Halloween. Together, they decorated pumpkins, shared stories past and present, and enjoyed special treats. The visit by the third graders is part of a year-long study of intergenerational relations, a successful and long-standing program that fosters empathy and a deeper understanding of what it might feel like to be an older person in our society. Over the course of the year, students visit Redeemer Village for special activities, and the residents of Redeemer Village visit Meadowbrook for special events.
The Meadowbrook School is grateful to the McKeown Foundation for their support of this unique program.
