Lakeshore Intergenerational School and the Slovene Home Partners in Learning
At Lakeshore Intergenerational School, we believe in lifelong learning. One way that we share this philosophy with our students, and the community, is by forming partnerships with local long term care facilities. Each class at L.I.S. engages with a facility monthly to complete a curriculum based activity with the residents. Both the students and residents learn something new, and have a great time interacting with one another.
This month, we would like to honor one of those partners. The Slovene Home has partnered with L.I.S. for two years now, and engages with not one, but two of our classrooms. The residents are always so much fun to be around, and offer an immeasurable amount of knowledge to contribute to the education of our students. One student said “I love to go! They are always so funny.” Another student said, “I love the Slovene home because my friends there have great stories to tell!” We want to thank the Slovene Home for being an outstanding partner, and we look forward to many intergenerational experiences in the future!
