The Grade 2 class from Eckville Elementary School visited the Eckville Manor House on Dec. 14 to spread some holiday cheer.
The students were there to spend some time with the residents, performed Christmas carols and distribute their Gifts for Grandparents.
The students and residents played a game together where they had to roll tennis balls onto a target, an outline of a Christmas tree taped on the ground.
Each student was matched with a “grandparent” and took their turn rolling two tennis balls for candy.
Afterward, the Grade 2’s turned the Manor’s chapel into a stage and performed two Christmas carols for the residents showing off their rehearsed dance moves.
The visit ended with the class handing out the gift bags they had put together for the “grandparents” who live in the Manor.
Eckville Elementary School had raised $440 for Gifts For Grandparents through Movie Days.
The money from the whole school was used to purchase the Gifts for Grandparents.
The Grade 2’s handed out the gifts which included puzzle books, writing tools, mints, socks, toothbrushes, nail files and nail polish to the residents.
