Partnering with the Kennett Area Senior Center for Inter-Generational Snowflake Project

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.DSC_0010

“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.”

Founded in 1972, the Kennett Area Senior Center is a private community-based charitable organization, whose mission is to preserve and enhance the dignity and well-being of adults 50 years of age and older who live in more than 13 municipalities in southern Chester County (and beyond). The Kennett Area Senior Center is located at 427 South Walnut Street, Kennett Square, 19348. To learn more about the Kennett Area Senior Center, interested readers should visit the senior center’s website, call the senior center at 610-444-4819, or stop by during normal business hours.

Ronald McDonald Comes to Mary D. Lang!

Students at the Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center were treated to a fantastic friendship assembly, Ronald McDonald’s Friendship Adventures, by the Dukart Family. The kids had a BLAST and learned a ton about friendship and how to deal with bullying. A big thank you to the Dukart Family for this amazing experience! Ronald even had a little surprise for Miss Schwendeman. (Let’s just say clowns are not her favorite!)

On February 11, students at the Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center reached a milestone in their kindergarten year. They celebrated the 100th day of school! Now the 100th day of school might not seem like much to us adults, but to the kids this was an AWESOME day!! The projects that went along with the day were as unique in each class as the day itself! Some classes had students bring in projects while others completed projects in school. We hope you enjoy the photos of the amazing work that is happening at the Mary D. Lang Kindergarten Center.
