Students from Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center made 294 snowflakes for the Kennett Area Senior Center in a recent project called Snowflakes for Seniors. Together, students created a Winter Wonderland that was not only exciting, but rewarding, because students had the opportunity to do something special for their fellow community members.
“Each snowflake was unique just like the students who made them,” commented Mrs. April Reynolds, principal of the Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center. “The students learned that sharing is caring and they certainly care about their Kennett seniors.”
The snowflake crafts made by the students were used in collaboration with the Kennett Area Senior Center’s annual holiday appeal. This appeal is sent to the senior center’s donors requesting a donation to support the work of Kennett Area Senior Center. For each gift of $100 or more, one of the student’s snowflakes was hung from the ceiling of the Kennett Area Senior Center creating a blizzard throughout the building.
“The snowflake project was very successful,” commented Mrs. Anita O’Connor, executive director of the Kennett Area Senior Center. “I would like to thank the children and their teachers, on behalf of our seniors and donors.”
