BRIDGES: connecting seniors and schools

Fourth graders at Memorial met with seniors as part of the Bridges Program
The Bridges program started in the mid 1990's and is in its second year 
in the Burlington Elementary Schools.
The program focuses on sharing experiences
and learning from different generations.
Seniors visit the classrooms six times and then the students 
get to visit the Senior Center!

Todays focus was: Your lives are our History
What were classrooms like when you went to school?
