Foster Grandparent Della Waterman recently worked one-on-one with kindergartners in Lisa Certo-Card’s class helping to develop math skills. Mrs. Waterman, along with fellow Foster Grandparent Rose Loverme, volunteer at Rogers Elementary School through the Lutheran Social Services’ Foster Grandparent Program. The program, which began in 1983, gives men and women 55 years or older who like to be with children, the opportunity to volunteer in the schools under the supervision of the classroom teachers. Foster Grandparents give assistance, love, support and companionship to students. They perform many duties including helping in the development of basic learning skills, teaching simple tasks and self-care skills and helping children grow physically, socially, emotionally and academically. The experience is enriching for the students, but also for the Foster Grandparents. If you would like to find out more information on becoming a Foster Grandparent in the schools, please click to see the brochure, or call Linda Burton, Project Coordinator at 665-5354.
