Landing Elementary School students enjoyed breakfast and reading with adults from Glen Cove Senior Center when the school’s Senior Volunteer Program kicked off on Oct. 16.

The program, which has been in place for more than 10 years, gathers students with senior citizens for approximately 45 minutes weekly. The participants get to know one another, while reading and completing word searches and crossword puzzles. Fourth-grade teachers Maria DePace and Susan Fiumara coordinate the program and said it offers students a nice opportunity to interact with elderly members of the community.
