From the Heart


Elmcrest youth stained
glass hearts

February is Heart Month, and the children at Elmcrest dedicated their talents to that theme. They created these colorful stained-glass pieces of art that brightened many a window in the cottages on campus. To add to their Valentine enjoyment, they each received a goodie bag filled with candy, Pokémon trading cards, pencils, and a Valentine card.

These treats originated from a wish of Giada, a 5th grader at Woodland Elementary School. She wanted to do something for the children at Elmcrest. Her teacher, Mrs. Greabell helped the class to assemble 60 bags with all these delightful treats. The boys and girls who enjoyed these goodies all signed a Valentine thank-you that was delivered to the generous class at Woodland school. Thanks to all…from the heart.
