Gramatan Village and Bronxville School Third Graders Explore "The Importance of Reading"

By Kay-Lin Richardson, Gramatan Village Volunteer

May 2, 2024: Gramatan Village (GV), a membership-based nonprofit organization dedicated to helping older adults age at home with dignity, proudly participated in a heartwarming partnership with the third-grade students of Bronxville Elementary School.

This meaningful collaboration focused on "The Importance of Reading," bringing together two generations within the Bronxville community, fostering genuine interactions and mutual learning experiences. Through this initiative, senior citizens from Gramatan Village had the opportunity to read to the young students, emphasizing the joy and importance of literacy.

"We were thrilled to read to the third graders." said GV members as they exited the classrooms. "It was so lovely to be in a classroom sharing books and stories with the children. The students were so respectful and attentive. I hope we can do it again soon!”

As a token of appreciation, the children made special bookmarks for the seniors, adding a personal touch to the exchange.

"We are delighted to partner with Bronxville Elementary School in this endeavor," said Grace Gilmer, Executive Director at Gramatan Village. “This partnership exemplifies our commitment to creating intergenerational activities. These opportunities help break down stereotypes and barriers between generations, ultimately leading to a greater sense of empathy and interconnectedness among community members of all ages.”

Gramatan Village extends heartfelt appreciation to Megan Hanson, 3rd Grade Teacher and Curriculum Leader, for spearheading this initiative.
