Highland park students, teachers impress

Oh my gosh! The first grade Highland Park Elementary School teachers and their students came to the Senior Citizen Center today and gave a presentation.
The children were dressed up as what they wanted to be when they grow up. There were four classes present and they did a marvelous job of portraying the type of job they wanted to do when they grew up.  I don’t know how much these teachers make a year but whatever it is, it isn’t enough.
These kiddos started out with a poem  about what they wanted to be and I am telling you, it was fantastic.  They sang a couple of songs and we were blown away with this presentation.  Great job, Highland Park Elementary first grade teachers.
On Mondays we play Bingo and assorted games, of your choice.  Wednesday is traditional quilting day and the other days the quilt room is being used by the crafty ladies.  The men play pool everyday and they really seem to be enjoying their “room”.
The rest of the week games of your choice are played.  So when you want something to do, please come to the center and see what the other seniors are doing with their spare time and you might want to join in.
The center is located at 914 Boston Ave. in Nederland and is opened from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday.  Lunch is served at 11:30 a.m. and if you want a nutritious lunch, please call Diane at 727-5230 so she can order a lunch for you since reservations are required.
Don’t sit home all alone, come down to the center where the coffee is always hot and snack are available.  You might meet an old friend or make a new one….hope to see you soon.
