Many JP families presented holiday gifts to the seniors at
Elm Court, the nearby assisted-living residence. Recently, we received this letter:
On behalf of the
residents of Elm Court, please accept my sincerest thanks for the holiday gifts
your students provided through the “Wish Upon a Star” program. Our residents look forward to this
project and the hand-picked items you deliver every year at this time.
selection of holiday songs the children sang made the event even more
special. We are extremely touched
by the generosity of students and families of Johnson Park School.
goes to teacher Bonnie Walker for
coordinating this unique project year after year. Her thoughtfulness has contributed significantly to
enhancing the quality of life for our Elm Court community.
Reiter, Director of Social Services
We agree with Ms. Reiter’s sentiments, and we
extend additional salutes to our first graders and their teachers who delivered
the gifts and to music teacher Dee Mann
who led our pupils in offering several seasonal songs.
