Fifth graders at SEL give back

December 15, 2023

This year all fifth graders at Smithtown Elementary recently participated in the "Adopt A Resident" program at the Smithtown Center for Rehabilitation and Nursing in order to give back to their community during the holiday season to spread kindness and joy to others.

The students decided to create handwritten holiday cards and donate items such as crayons, coloring books, socks, and decks of cards to keep the seniors comfy, cozy, and entertained.

Since this is also the season of giving, bringing a smile to the residents faces was a gift in itself. It reminded the students that sometimes giving back not only brings joy to others, but to ourselves as well!
