1986 Pudledock Photo Of Annie Pierce & Other Students Visiting Local Senior Citizens

Description

From the April 1986 Puddledock article with the photo:

On March 27, 1986 a number of 7th and 8th grade Chapter I students visited the Farmington Town Hall to bring Easter greetings to the Senior citizens of the Strafford County Nutrition Pro¬gram during their lunchtime. These cards, poems and stories written by the Chapter I students of Main Street School under the direction of Mrs. Condon and Mrs. Pettis allow for some days of excitement and creativity ranging on a variety of subjects selected by the students. For the past two years Chapter I students have been visiting other senior citizen homes in the Far¬mington area and it has proven to be a very rewarding experience for all concerned.

Trudy Pence, coordinator of the Senior Cit¬izen's Services, was very enthused about this event. In addition to the Senior Citizens vis¬ited on Thursday, additional creative writings were delivered on Good Friday along with the home delivered meals. Approximately 40-50 senior citizens in total received these Easter surprises.

The Chapter I Program at Main Street School and Memorial Drive Elementary is primarily a remedial reading program. Creative writing, however, plays an important role in language development and this is significant in reading as well. The elementary students are working on creative writings and are then able to see them printed on the computer. A great deal of reward and satisfaction is seen by the students and Chapter I staff as the stories are printed out on the computer.

These photos are stored together. They are from different periods of time. Last pulled together for possible use in April 1986.
