Santa Barbara County's oldest continually operating private school visits GranVida Senior Living
More than 30 students from The Howard School in Carpinteria visited senior residents
"The purpose of the visit to GranVida was to enrich our students' lives by connecting them with members of the community, as well as bring happiness to the residents at GranVida," said Anita Betancourt, Executive Assistant for The Howard School.
Bentancourt said the visit was enjoyable and unique in many ways but greatly enjoyed seeing how happy the students and residents were participating in activities together. She also said it's a visit that she's sure the students and residents will never forget and would like to visit again soon. "It was very special seeing the smiles on the resident's faces and to see them sing along with our students," said Bentancourt.
