OTISVILLE MAKES VALENTINES FOR NURSING HOMES

Posted February 11 at 3:58pm

Using crayons, markers and stickers, students from the primary and intermediate grades worked together to create the perfect Valentine Cards.  These cards will be shared with senior citizens at our local nursing homes.  While it may be just a piece of paper, this greeting card project that is organized by Mrs. Lisa Anglemyer every year helps to bring a little extra love and cheer to our local community.  Students made over 300 cards that will be distributed this weekend.  We hope to bring a smile to that special someone who receives one of our loving, hand made cards.  Otisville Elementary would like to wish everyone a Happy Valentine's Day.
