LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Students and seniors paired up in La Crosse Wednesday to make some holiday cookies.
Students from Hamilton Elementary stopped by the Salzer Square retirement living community to make the holiday treats. Hamilton teachers say it's a great chance for their students to get out into the community and experience something first-hand.
"To us, it means a lot at the holidays to be able to come in and see some people of a different generation because a lot of our kids don't necessarily have grandparents close to them. So this is a really good experience for them to get to interact with somebody of a different generation," said Hamilton Elementary Kindergarten Teacher Traci Schneider.
Hamilton students have been decorating cookies with the Salzer Square seniors for the last four years.
