Important Message Regarding Safety and Security Protocols
Stop!t App

LPMS Climate Committee and Select Choir Visit Renaissance Care Center

Students form the LPMS Climate Committee brought some holiday cheer to the residents at the Lincoln Park Renaissance Care Center. Students brought a snowman doorhanger craft and assisted the residents in creating the door decoration to brighten their day. Both student and seniors enjoyed working with one another.

The Select Choir also participated and performed a number of winter and holiday songs for the residents. Many of the seniors sang along. The trip concluded with an exciting round of HeadBandz, which everyone enjoyed playing. It's great to bring joy to others a time that can be very lonely for some.
