OWOSSO (WJRT) - (04/21/16) - Third graders at Central Elementary School in Owosso had some special visitors Thursday.

Since fall, the students have been traveling to Oliver Woods, a nearby assisted living community, reading to residents on Thursday mornings. Thursday, the class hosted their new friends for a special tea party in the school library.

”Every Thursday morning throughout the year, we usually travel to Oliver Woods and we do different activities with them for an hour, but we wanted to have a celebration and thank them for being our buddies this year and also give them a chance to see what an elementary school in 2016 looks like,” said Megan Friend, teacher at Central Elementary.

This was the first visit to an elementary school for some of the seniors in more than 50 years.
