Students Step Out to Visit Seniors

In 2018, Schuler Shoes and Rockport awarded  $500 grants to nine teachers in Minnesota. We are starting to receive reports of how those grants were used and the impact it is having on students, classrooms and communities. Celebrate these amazing teachers with us:

 

Dear Schuler Shoes,

Our second grade students enjoyed our first visit to Country Manor nursing home in Sartell. This was such a wonderful experience for the students. Our music teacher prepared Christmas songs with the kids so we did a mini concert when we arrived. They also had an opportunity to read, color, do word finds, etc. with about 30 of the residents, many of whom were wheelchair bound.

The best part of the experience was to watch the kids go from being a bit timid, even nervous, to having conversations and interacting with the residents. Thank you again for the grant. This experience would not have been possible without your support.
