Students sing for assisted living residents

December 12, 2003

Albany - Fifth graders have gone back in time and brought with them melodies from the past.

On Friday, the St. Teresa's students sang songs, mainly from the 19th century, for residents at Morningside Assisted Living Home in Albany. The singers dressed the part wearing clothing from the 1850's.

This visit was part of their community project for Advent. Teacher, Judy J. Johnson, says, "We all learn to be more responsible, including me too. In the future we hope that they'll take their children out to the community."

The kids sang one holiday song, which was Jingle Bells, written in the 1850's. After singing, students gave out Christmas goodie bags to residents.
