Spreading Love To The Elderly

For the school’s monthly Thoughtful Thursday activity, students of Central Boulevard Elementary School created valentines and wrote acrostic poems to spread happiness and love to residents of local assisted living and nursing homes this Valentine’s Day.

Established a few years ago, Thoughtful Thursday is a schoolwide community service initiative in which the entire school dedicates one Thursday a month to bettering the community through a project. The initiative reinforces the school’s message of “character builds success.”

Students in grades K-2 colored Valentine’s Day graphics, including cupcakes, hearts, cherubs and messages such as “Happy Valentine’s Day” and “Be My Valentine.” Third- through fifth-grade students wrote acrostic poems using the letters in “heart” to warm residents’ hearts and let them know Central Boulevard is thinking about them.
