Youth and kids making connections

It’s important to build connections in your community

Halloween connection Mady McIvor

Carving pumpkins, reading stories, decorating and eating cupcakes and doing Halloween arts and crafts is how two groups from two separate schools spent an afternoon together.

“It is an outreach—a connection,” said Bridge teacher Andy Jonas.  “It’s important to build connections in your community.”

Six students from The Bridge, planned and prepared for the afternoon to be spent with 22 grade one students along with their teacher Shanna Nelson and a few mom’s who came to assist.

Teen Brandon Harmes was working pretty hard on the pumpkin carvings with the little ones. “It’s not too bad,” he said, “I am having lots of fun.”

All 22 grade one’s took part in each of the activities planned by the Bridge students. The grades one’s said they were, “having a great time.”

Jaymi Powell said that she was in a pretty bad mood earlier in the day. “I am in a really, really good mood now,” she said, “I just love kids!”

Kids doing something nice for kids,” said Jonas, “It’s pretty great. I think we’d like to do this for every holiday.”
