Forest Park Students Perform for Seniors

Forest Park Adventist Christian School students wearing red, white and blue performed for more than 40 residents and staff at the Sunrise View Convalescent Center in Everett, Wash., in early December 2008.

Under the direction of music teacher Sandra Clay, the K–8 students performed their Christmas program, An All-American Christmas, for residents. Energetic students told a story and then performed American Christmas carols by singing, speaking and playing tone chimes.

The students had been invited back to Sunrise View Convalescent Center this year after performing last December. The Sunrise staff were so impressed with the students that the school now has a standing invitation to return anytime.

As one of the activity directors says: "It is so refreshing to have well-behaved, Christian students perform for our residents." These students not only brought the joy of the season to these residents, but also learned the joy of giving!
