Thank You for the Positive Letters!
As a part of CTKG Reese’s first platform point, 5th graders were invited to create Valentine’s Day cards to send to their local nursing homes. During the February holidays, hundreds of cards were send to area nursing homes in the Southington, Meriden, West Hartford, and Cornwall areas..
