Pacelli kindergarten and first grade students sang and visited with the residents at The Cedars of Austin on April 19. They sang 10 songs, including a few favorites like “The Hokey Pokey” and “If You’re Happy and You Know It.”

Some of the students have grandparents, relatives and friends that are residents at The Cedars. The interactions between the students and the residents bring enjoyment to all and an appreciation for youth and our elders to the respective generations.
