Rocky Point, NY - October 5, 2015 - On Thursday, October 1st, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker visited the Learning Experience in Rocky Point during one of their many community service events. As part of their philanthropy curriculum, the Learning Experience invited seniors from Atria Assisted Living Home to spend the day with preschool students. The day included a senior parade, story time, songs, sign language, crafts and snacks.
“I commend the Learning Experience for teaching their students about the importance of community service at such a young age,” said Legislator Anker. “I hope to work with them in the future to grow their philanthropy program.”
The Learning Experience curriculum includes sign language, Mandarin, manners and philanthropy. Each month the school embraces a philanthropy theme. September’s theme was “Community,” where children were given the opportunity to help their community and in return learn a valuable skill.
