Students make holiday cards for senior citizens


Morgan Cheek, Staff Writer

This year, the Life Skills students decided to brighten up the lives of aging citizens by making Christmas cards and small gifts to give to them this holiday season. Twelve of these Clearfield students are taking time out of their day to make the senior citizens in our area better.

According to Ms. Plyler, one of the teachers of the Life Skills class, the cards will be given to the Agency on Aging organization before they distribute the gifts to the senior citizens. The cards are made by the students and many of them include a small handmade ornament. Ms. Plyler, states “I have to thank my aide, Joyce, for helping organize and assist with the cards or else this would not have been possible. As always, the positive contributions that our room participates in could never be possible without the help of the adults in my classroom.” The few virtual days that unfortunately had to occur put a dent in the plan, so the students and supervisors had to adapt to the unfolding events.

When asked why her students chose to do this activity, Mrs. Plyler said that her class loves to help the community whenever they can. Previously, they have been involved with Toys for Tots and the food bank. Even though Covid-19 changed their plans, the class still found a way to put the community first.
