EDISON, NJ -- Second and third grade students at The Wardlaw-Hartridge School in Edison continued the school’s partnership with the Edison Housing Authority’s Bridges Program by visiting a group of senior citizens on Jan. 27.

The students began by performing two songs from their W-H winter concert. The second and third graders introduced themselves to the seniors and later played games to become better acquainted with their new friends. There were many smiles in the room as the children and seniors alike enjoyed the afternoon.

"The seniors loved meeting us! They were very friendly and they made us feel like their door is always open," third-grader Aryan Nair of Edison said.

"We got to know more about the community and the people that are older than us.  We can learn all different kinds of things from them," second-grader Emily O'Neill of Garwood said.
