Springfield, MO: Creekside Bridges the Generation Gap with Sister School

Every year, Creekside has at least one event with our sister school, Portland Elementary. This spring, Portland’s Student Council came over and shared pictures and items from their life. Our community members brought in items from their past as well–explaining to the students what they were.The tables were full of objects from the past such as butter churners, rotary phones, and coffee grinders. It was a delightful time of sharing for everyone: the students learned from the community members, and the community members learned from the students. We look forward to creating more memories with Portland Elementary.
