ITMMS Student Leaders "Adopt-a-Grandparent"
The Island Trees Memorial Middle School eighth grade Student Leaders had a wonderful opportunity to participate in an annual community service event this year, "Adopt a Grandparent." On Friday, December 16, 2016, students in our club visited the Townhouse Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing , a senior citizen's facility, to spread some holiday cheer to those who did not have family to visit them this year. Students and staff signed up to "adopt" a grandparent by purchasing a holiday gift that was wrapped by them and delivered when we visited. The students spent time meeting with the residents, presenting gifts, singing carols and enjoying some juice and cookies. Thank you to Danielle Azar, Taryn Aponte, Jaime Roche and Vicki Firmbach for coordinating the visit. Thank you to staff who donated presents and thank you to the Student Leaders who made a big difference in the lives of so many this holiday season! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
Mrs. Azar and Mrs. Aponte
