Carol Ambrosch’s third grade class, also known as the Shining Stars, convenes with their elder friends from the Ledyard Senior Center four times a year and Thursday’s meeting was just in time for the Christmas holiday.
Everyone sat down together and catch up and exchange gift over a buffet lunch with a smorgasbord of desserts. The students later sang holiday classics like "Jingle Bells," "The Twelve Days of Christmas" and "Dashing Through the Snow" for their guests.
Ambrosch said the students have used their time wisely to squeeze in their rehearsals and one student said, "we practiced a million times."
This social event came right after the arrival of a new smart board in Ambrosch’s class. The third graders showed their elder friends how the board works by showing them how to chose a color and sign their name onto the board.
