With the school year in full swing, residents and team members from Mustang Creek Estates of Frisco visited Polly Tadlock Elementary School to meet with the first-graders and congratulate them on a successful start of the year. They brought with them a small gift of appreciation to reward the students for their dedication to school and education. The seniors enjoyed sitting down with the first-graders in the school cafeteria and listening to the children’s impressions of their first few weeks of school. In addition, the residents shared stories from their school days as well.
Intergenerational activities provide many benefits to the lives of seniors, including improving their physical and mental health. The children also value the connection with the older generation and truly benefit from the relationships with the seniors. This is yet another example of the growing partnership between Mustang Creek Estates of Frisco and Polly Tadlock Elementary school.
