Whipple 4th Graders Spread Holiday Cheer

20151217_184955Mrs. Ousley’s 4th Grade class decided that they wanted to spread holiday cheer this season by going caroling at Brookdale Senior Living Center here in Perry. The class learned an important lesson on giving back to their community by preparing over 45 handmade Christmas cards. They learned twelve Christmas songs and practiced a reader’s theater of “The Grinch, Who Stole Christmas.” All of their hard work and preparation paid off on the night of Thursday, December 17th when they met up with their class and teacher. They performed for over 40 residents. Those residents sang along, tears in their eyes, as the students achieved their goal of spreading holiday cheer. Not all learning takes place in the classroom! Sharing kindness and showing love at Christmas is one of the most valuable lessons they could learn. Happy Holidays!
