Pen Pal Program Connects Youth with Elderly
WEST PENN TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- A program at one Schuylkill County elementary school connects fifth grade students with senior citizens. They communicate through written letters, and on Wednesday, the pen pals met for the first time. West Penn Elementary School was transformed into a jungle, with fifth grade students wearing masks, disguised as different animals. This was done to keep a decade-old tradition fresh and fun.
