Middle School Students Adopt a Grandparent
On November 21, 2016 Wauwatosa Catholic School middle school students entered into a wonderful relationship with residents of St. Anne's Salvatorian Campus. This "Adopt a Grandparent" program partnered each of the students with a resident. Students and their partners met each other, talked and worked on a craft project together. The interaction between our students and the residents was truly amazing! The residents will have an opportunity to visit Wauwatosa Catholic School on December 21, 2016. They will tour the school and attend the middle school Christmas party. Middle school students will be visiting St. Anne's on February 22, 2017 for a Valentine's celebration and again on May 22, 2017 for a barbecue. Our "grandparents" will be visiting Wauwatosa Catholic School in January, March and April. Additional information and photos coming soon!
