Pueblo County Spanish Club knows how to spread the love! On Feb. 14th 2020, the Spanish Club delivered valentines cards to a local retirement home. Señora Koehn, who has been a Spanish teacher for eight years, shares that she usually shares Spanish and French songs with them in relation to the holidays. “We did this to teach students responsibility for their fellow human beings and to respect their elders. It’s a good sense of connection with the world around them. It is our jobs as educators to help the students experience this. We hoped to share happiness and kindness with people who don’t have that.” The club meets once a week, every Thurs. They spent three weeks making over 120 cards! The cards included a sweet message, a piece of candy and great illustrations. Senior, Lorryn Glass who has been a part of the club for two years says, “It was a lot of fun and it was heartwarming to see how grateful and happy it made the senior citizens to see us! We spent about an hour there walking up and down the halls sharing the cards with the residents and staff. It makes me want to do something for them every holiday.” The club’s goal is to eventually spend a whole day with them and form relationships.
