The end of the year came to a quick halt with the cancellation of school on our final Friday. We are back and ready to get to work through the winter months, but wanted to look back at a couple exciting projects from our final week of 2012.
Christmas Caroling at Battle Creek VA Hospital
Eight students and four adults (including 2 Gateway volunteers) visited veterans hospital to spread some holiday cheer. Students rehearsed and performed a collection of 9 carols and received a warm reception. In fact, students were asked to perform an encore of the entire set! Between sets, students shared cards, cookies, and stories with many of the residents.
Holiday crafts: Christmas swag
Sherri Snyder from Gull Lake Landscaping taught ten students how to create their own Christmas swag. Students learned about the process of making wreaths/swag and practiced bow tying. Many had a decorative gift to share at home!
